Manchester Airport, Terminal 2 Food Court

Manchester Airport Terminal 2

Whilst working as a Senior Architect for Benoy in Nottinghamshire, Anna developed the interior design proposals for Manchester airport Terminal 2. The principle was to capitalise on the unique passenger experience that the International Departure Lounge has to offer. Focusing on a strong commercial plan, the International Departure Lounge offers a smooth passenger flow with visual connections to the airfield and an emphasis on orientation. Enhanced though references to nature and a strong sense of place, the passenger is offered a diverse and relaxing airport experience. This vision will not only be strong enough to generate commercial value, but will inspire, stimulate and become an exemplar for airport regeneration.


Daquing Train Station

Daquing Train Station, China

This design was undertaken by Anna as part of a competition for a new train station in the province of Daquing. The design for the new railway station embraces the relationship between Daquing’s technological achievements and its lush vegetation. This is achieved through the use of a hi-tech steel structure which works in conjunction with soft, natural finishes. The project is environmentally sound, using a double skin facade and a passive solar gain and ventilation strategy .
