Los Angeles International Airport Terminal 21 World Way
Los Angeles, CA 90045
Design Achievement - Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the sixth busiest airport in the world and third in the United States. In 2013, Terminal 2 served more than 5.5 million travelers. Constructed in 1962 as LAX’s original international terminal, Terminal 2 was demolished and rebuilt in 1988. As a part of the overall LAX Concessions Renovation Program, Westfield contracted DLR Group to refine and deliver their cutting-edge design of the Terminal 2 modernization. The interior renovation will transform the existing dated terminal into a new, world-class experience for travelers that features 20 new dining and retail destinations. With three distinct districts, the traveler journey begins after crossing the TSA checkpoint with a meandering Commercial Hub that connects to a Dining Terrace with several unique destinations, textured surfaces and lounge-style seating. The journey continues with The Strand, an open, flowing dining and shopping area with a grand, sculptural staircase leading to a mezzanine with café that overlooks the concourse below.
Scope Summary - This LAX Terminal 2 project includes interior renovations to the existing arrivals level concourse including a re-invention of the aesthetic of the concourse and a rebranding of concessions. The same is true for the departures level concourse and includes all concessions, retail shops, passenger hold rooms, vertical circulation, and restroom facilities. The project was phased to allow for continuing operations during construction with minimal impact to passenger flow and airfield operations. DLR Group provided architecture and engineering services.
