Mykonos Airport Project: Cycladic Form & Function

Monday, 26 October 2020

The new Mykonos airport will be totally finished by next summer, which is good news! It has been designed by the famous architecture team K-Studio and their architectural vision befits the status of Mykonos as the most style conscious island in Greece. The new airport combines modern architecture with the traditional style of the Cyclades.

The creative team wanted to blend the high functionality of a modern airport with a Cycladic village that makes the traveller interact with the spaces and at the same time feel the warmth of greek hospitality. The traveller’s experience is based on intriguing, deconstructed elements of an airport rebuilt into Cycladic architectural harmony.

The old airport certainly needed a revamp! It opened first in 1971 and with the steadily rising number of people using the airport, there have been many extensions and refurbishes, added as appendages. 

The new design encapsulates unity and sense of thoughtfulness, a pleasant environment to easy the stress of airport travel. The passenger terminal of the airport has been expanded to increase its size by 50% with the construction of a new terminal area.
All the spaces will soon be refurbished, including VIP lounges, eateries, and boutiques.
