JACMEL AIR TERMINALJacmel, Haïti
Jacmel, the ultimate tourist town, had a glaring need for an air terminal worthy of its fame. The small airfield building had been built in 1946, and was dilapidated and unable to offer services to travellers. Through the use of customized architecture to overcome very limited resources, the building now has an open, airy and light-filled appearance, helping basic airport functions to run smoothly.
In addition to traveller arrival and departure functions, the new air terminal, with its evocative arched roof, also features stores, a restaurant and administrative offices. Once again, natural ventilation and lighting were used, creating a tropical architecture in harmony with the environment.
