The REACH project at the San Francisco International Airport has landed. The project is located in the International Terminal at Concourses A and G. With installation complete on the planter boxes, boxed end walls and hydration stations, work continues to wind down on the patio at the end of International Concourse G. The vestibule entrance to the outdoor terrace is a welcome addition for airport guests. This outdoor area is a breath of fresh air, offering plenty of seating options with views of airplanes in the distance.
One of the REACH project highlights is the brass, found on the custom hydration stations and planter boxes. This brass presented its own set of challenges Northwestern Design was able to traverse. With the help of metal fabricator Elliott Specialty Metal, these brass pieces were successfully bent to perfection to complete the backsplashes and toe kicks on the hydration stations. The brass and white corian on the hydration stations go together beautifully, adding character to the airport decor.
Brass and fluted corian is also featured on the planter boxes spread throughout the two concourses inside the international terminal. A stainless steel liner houses the potted plants, which line the walkways and are surrounded by tables and chairs, offering guests a little bit of peace and solitude amid the hustle and bustle.
