The design is based on a proved and luxury warehouse system, developed in Westland, between Rotterdam and The Haque. The structure is simple and efficient, suitable to store Sikorsky aircraft. It’s covered with translucent polycarbonate panels in a white color, exposing light within the hangar. It makes the space effective and enjoyable. The total facades are covered with a steel sandwich cladding system in combination with glass curtainwall and window frames and with 3 megadoors in front. A long side the space with the Sikorsky aircraft, are facilities like departure, safety, pilot, offices, storages etc. The total character of the hangar radiates lightness and refinement, like a hummingbird.
