Danpalon Cladding at Hobart Airport, Tasmania

A building’s façade creates an immutable image in our consciousness: think of the silver undulations of the Guggenheim Bilbao, and the gleaming white tiles on our own Sydney Opera House. Danpalon has an impressive track record when it comes to stunning, practical façades, having provided the “face” for many well recognised projects.

The baggage makeup hall developed for Stage 3 of Hobart International Airport’s redevelopment is a large volume, requiring a bold formal expression of the functional space within. HASSELL’s vision of a glowing box provides a stunning view for passengers arriving at night, and allows them to glimpse shadowy movements of people and baggage within. Throughout the day the baggage hall is bathed in diffused natural light, whilst excluding direct sunlight and heat penetration, thus reducing the need for internal lighting and artificial cooling.
