Connecting two passenger terminals

Designed as a spacious, sustainable, state-of-the-art building to improve air passenger comfort, 'Connector' links two airport terminals at Brussels airport.

Façade designed to withstand jetblasts

Covering a surface area of 4,600 m², the glass façade and skylights allow for maximum penetration of natural light.

Acoustic performance, radar reflections and resistance to jetblast were all considered in the façade design.

New retail spaces

‘Connector’ welcomed its first passengers in March 2015, and provides world-class retail, security screening and border control, positioning Brussels Airport as one of the leading airports in Europe.

Chapman Taylor was the lead architect from concept design to delivery for architecture, interior design, lighting and MEP coordination.

Architects and Collaborators: Chapman Taylor, Buro Happold, Moss.
