Las Américas International Airport Central Atrium Renovation

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. 2017

luis vidal + architects has planned a complete renovation of Las Americas International Airport, alongside with its new Control Tower.

The new design combines innovative architecture together with sustainability, functionality and commodity, taking into consideration all its users’ needs. It offers the best possible passenger experience, while considering a future growth of up to 7.5 M pax/year.

The proposal maintains the terminal “footprint”, redesigning its main spaces and creating new ones while, at the same time, opening the façade in order to allow the entry of natural light.

luis vidal + architects provides the airport with a new DNA that goes hand in hand with the Dominican Republic socio-cultural and environmental identity. The New Terminal aims to become a landmark and a reference for the country.
