Calgary Airport

Entro as Consultants

The Calgary Airport Authority’s International Facilities Project adds two new concourses (D and E) and 24 additional gates to support the growing number of U.S. and international flights offered by YYC Calgary International Airport. Entro created and implemented a multi-year implementation strategy and unique visual language to give passengers clarity and confidence when navigating through the space.

 

Neutral silvers and whites for the international terminal offer contrast to the bright blues and yellows in use in other concourses and ensure the right balance of messaging coverage versus subtlety.

 

Big, bold type on large disc-shaped gate signage yields a playful, avant-garde look and feel, provides adequate legibility and allows for lower sign quantities. Comprehensive research for this design concept involved on-site passenger studies and accessibility testing.

 

Entro’s environmental graphics program forms an integral part of the architecture and provides the necessary directive components. Having transformed the airport environment from a transitory setting to a destination on its own, this terminal and the many new features at YYC Calgary International Airport will give passengers a true sense of place during their travels
