Heathrow Terminal 2 in London, UK by Foster and Partners
Designed by Foster + Partners, this new sustainable architecture building of Heathrow Terminal 2 in London, United Kingdom which was formerly known as the Heathrow East, will become the new home for Star Alliance airlines to support 20 million passengers per year with an estimated budget is about £1billion whichs is a part of a £4.8 billion investment across the airport.
The new Heathrow terminal 2 will provide 185,000m2 of floor space on the site of the existing Terminal 2 and Queen’s Building, both buildings are being demolished later this year. The new sustainable building is designed to produce 40% less carbon than the existing buildings using large north-facing windows in the roof to flood the building with natural light without generating uncomfortable levels of heat in the building. Solar-gathering panels on the roof will further reduce the dependency on energy supplies. Additionally a new energy center, partially fuelled by renewable resources, will provide heating and cooling for the building.
“The new Terminal 2 is part of a major programme of work already underway. Passengers travelling through Heathrow will be using new and extensively refurbished facilities which provide us with an excellent platform from which we can provide a better service to our customers than ever before.” Said Mike Brown, Heathrow Airport’s Chief Operating Officer.
