Long Beach Airport – Terminal Improvements

Curtain walls down, lights up — coined a Cultural Heritage Landmark, new and freshly clad curtain walls have been erected to give new life and light to the Long Beach Airport.

Previously labeled as one of the worst airports in California for security, overcrowding and physical condition, the design goal of the rehabilitation project was to maintain and enhance the character of the airport by providing an improved customer service experience for its thousands of visitors, travelers and employees. The new passenger concourse canopies and ceiling fixtures are highlighted with linear light, creating a fluid and transparent connection which is modern, comfortable and inviting while preserving the historic terminal.
