With increased need for hold room capacity, YVR initiated a new passenger service vi shuttle service to the tarmac. Grout McTavish was retained to design this level two hold room serving two wide body aircraft simultaneously while providing easy access to the broader terminal. This former utility area of YVR was transformed into a bright and airy passenger facility comprised of three gate check-ins washroom facilities and bus access points design to serve 575,000 passengers yearly at peak capacity. Situated at the international wing of the terminal, the design was developed around the thematic concept of turbulent waters as developed by Clive Grout in the formative years of the Airport’s expansion. This concept takes form in the signature ceiling design featuring dramatic cove lighting accented by large arc panels simulating the motion of water and the transcendence of bubbles to the ocean’s surface.
