Sheremetyevo’s new international Terminal C, with an annual of 20 million is one of the biggest international terminals in Europe. The complex comprises the main building, a control tower and a parking space for up to 2,500 vehicles, Big Time Moscow writes.
According to the Chairman of the Board of Directors of JSC SIA, Alexander Ponomarenko, the terminal itself, like Terminal B, is made in the style of Russian constructivism.
“The main feature that distinguishes this trend from others in architecture is the design and functional purpose of the artistic image. The main idea is reflected in the design of the floor, ceiling, walls and columns. Natural granite and marble slabs, frosted and transparent glass with backlighting, various wall panels, as well as natural and artificial landscaping are used in the decoration of the interior,” Ponomarenko told Vedomosti in an interview.
The terminal will also feature a unique artifact called “Globe”, that will undoubtedly attract the attention of Sheremetyevo’s passengers, Ponomarenko noted.
“The artifact includes a system of media screens reflecting the history of aviation and flights, starting with Leonardo da Vinci. It will look very cool! It was made by a German company that deals with such exclusive artifacts made to order. Unfortunately, they did not manage to mount it by the opening, it would have added great emotions. It will be ready in April,” Ponomarenko points out.
The new Terminal was built as part of the Long-term Airport Development Program, and its design and construction phase lasted 33 months, from April 2017 to January 2020.
Sheremetyevo Airport’s state-of-the-art airfield and terminal infrastructure offers virtually unlimited opportunities for the long-term growth of airlines that already work with the airport, attracting new partner airlines and offering business development for numerous partners, vendors, and small- and medium-sized businesses.
