Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport West Terminal Expansion, Phase 2
Phase 2 of the West Terminal Expansion added 31,000 square feet of the recently completed Phase 1 project, completing the airport master plan’s main terminal building. The new high-bay arrival lobby, distinguished by its curving roof and clerestory windows, creates a sense of identity for the airport and serves as its primary entrance. Phase 2 adopts the design aesthetic and guidelines established during the planning of Phase 1.
The building interior is efficient in layout, promoting instinctive way-finding throughout. A sky-lit central corridor links the secure side functions – the two new gates and holdrooms, concessions and supports spaces. Also added was a new baggage claim area with two carousels.
