Commercial Area, San Jose del Cabo Airport San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur, Mexico. sanzpont [arquitectura] sanzpont [arquitectura] designs the commercial area at the new T2 of San Jose del Cabo, México’s Airport. AeroShops: Commercial Area inside the Airport. The recognized Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico with a total of 12 airports in Mexico selected the architecture and design firm sanzpont [arquitectura] to carry out the project for the Commercial Area of its new International Terminal at San Jose del Cabo with a total of 7,500 m2. The goal with this project is to join the new trend in green design Airports in the world, being the first of its kind in Mexico. The project’s main objective is not only to incorporate shops and services within the terminal but also to make the passenger go through
an experience during his instance at the Airport Mall creating a whole Image and Brand identity as part of a business and commercial strategy full of differentiating value and uniqueness. GREEN Airport Design Trend. The new commercial area at Terminal 2 of San Jose del Cabo Airport incorporates spaces of a greener and more sustainable aeroportuary design value, positioning Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico as a top vanguardist corporation in México. The design of the Food Court Area was inspired by a Picnic concept surrounded by natural vegetation, the chairs and tables are set on an artificial grass floor, achieving an outdoor environment of relaxation and comfort for passengers. The totality of the commercial area space is lit by natural sunlight thanks to a monumental glass façade facing the runway. This gene
rates significant energy savings in lighting throughout the day and thus creates a more sustainable commercial environment. The interior space is designed as if it were an outside commercial corridor, trying to create a futuristic urban experience for the passengers by providing enjoyable spaces and consequently a pleasant stay while waiting for their flight. Aerodynamic Vanguard Design. Since the initial planning phase of the project, a contemporary and homogeneous commercial architectural image was sought. The formal concept is based in aerodynamic design using curved lines that reflect vanguardism and a morphological integration with aeronautical design. Vending spaces are contained by enveloping curves made of white Aluminium Compound Panels. The architects relied on digital design and manufacturing techniques to solve the intrinsically formal and constructional part of the project using BIM software, allowing them to visualize and coordinate all aspects of the construction phase. VIP LOUNGE: Organic Design and Digital Fabrication. The VIP Waiting Room was designed with an organic and vanguardist cell design concept in mind. The façade is made using a Voronoi type porous skin, which allows privacy in the room without blocking the view to the exterior. The architectural team designed this complex façade by using experimental parametric digital techniques, which solved the 3D formal and structural model of all the support system and its white Aluminum Compound Panel cover, so by these means, all the different and unique pieces are extracted and assembled just like a puzzle. Sanzpont [arquitectura] Barcelona, Spain & Cancun, Mexico Sanzpont [arquitectura] is an international architecture office founded by the twin brothers Sergio and Victor Sanz Pont. Our design philosophy is based on a constant search for innovation, but always user-focused and with a great respect for the environment. Architecture must create a connection between the user and the city, between the site and the environment, and it must be useful, logical, beautiful and sustainable. The working methodology is fully three-dimensional with BIM technology. Such models contain a digital constructive database capable of generating any type of digital information depending on the current phase of the project, in a way that to progress in the development of a project, is to advance the level of detail of the model. Actually, we have 3 offices, forming a great design creative team, from Barcelona, Cancun and Chicago with Alvaro Licona society.
