A memorable landmark combining symbolic sculpture & functional customer service.
Leonard Design Architects designed the Liquor & Tobacco concessions at Terminal 2 Incheon International Airport. Following on from the strength of this work we were invited to design a landmark feature situated within the airside concourse. Inspired by Incheon’s dancing red-crowned cranes the landmark’s elegant forms are representative of two dancing cranes, a bird’s wing forms and the movement of flight. Customer service desks and seating are seamlessly integrated into the overall symbolic, sculptural form.

The landmark is located at the centre of a three-way junction. It is designed to be prominent from all approaches whilst maintaining sightlines through to adjacent retail facades. This contextual intervention provides a memorable visual experience, a customer services focal point and an intuitive wayfinding aid.
