The long stretched building orientated to the apron having a cross section like a dike, is to be extended thus forming the backbone supporting the new building of Terminal II. The square two-storey building is separated from the waiting building by a narrow glass hall. The facade is closed, in contrast to the glazed Terminal I, by granite cladding and is thus totally orientated inwardly to a central court, which is lit by a roof light. The scale of the granite facade is modulated into pilasters and columns formed into a stone pergola at first floor level.
