CIP of Baghdad Airport design process

Baghdad Airport Site Analysis

To design the CIP Baghdad Airport, the MESH team first explored the needs and expectations of the project’s employer and came up with a well-developed physical plan from these needs and similar airport buildings elsewhere in the world.


Crafting the DNA of CIP Baghdad Airport

Along with understanding the physical program, Mesh announced the process of developing the structure and DNA of CIP Baghdad Airport. Afterwards, Mesh team has gradually developed the DNA. The DNA which includes the CIP brand personality and type of performance to benefit from various elements.  The elements consist of visual and environmental CIP studies, audience behavior policies, external volume behavior, and cultural policy in general. Indeed, CIP architecture and functionality were identified.

DNA & Atmosphere design of CIP

After this step according to the identified DNA, Mesh team, initiated CIP Baghdad Airport atmospheric studies. Mesh team investigated the type of user experience in the environment both in terms of 5 senses and services.

Defining the Visual and Tangible Character of the Environment

In the next step, space visual and tangible character identified the DNA and the atmosphere. The character was based on the specified physical program. Besides, DNA included other considerations, including audio considerations, access filters, space interconnection, ease of access and guidance in using services.

Modular-open plans were expanded and upgraded

Then at the completion of the layout of spaces, Mesh architects upgraded the plans from two to three-dimensional volumes.

Crafting a Unique Volumes: Inspired by Baghdad’s Charm

At this point the design of the CIP Baghdad Airport volume was a matter of concern: it included a fifth or roof view and should have been focused on volume issues. The mythical and mysterious things that happened in Baghdad have a look at the tourist attractions of this old city, Smaller arched buildings have thus become a single, intertwined partially intuitive. Eventually, intuitive complex strives to improve the quality of residence in the CIP building with its atmosphere and green space.

Innovative Design Approach

Integration of Arc-shaped Buildings for Elevated User Experience

As a result, Mesh team designed the CIP as a combination of smaller arc shaped buildings fabricated into each other, providing an exploitable space that leads the users into a central courtyard, which its green atmosphere adds to the experience of staying in the CIP.
