As a sub-consultant on the Crescent City Aviation Team (CCAT), a joint venture between LEO A DALY and Atkins, Apple Designs served as the primary wayfinding consultant for the new 35-gate, 972,000 SF terminal. The new Terminal evokes a sense of place and welcoming introduction to the city of New Orleans reflecting the local environment and culture. The three-story atrium with live jazz music fills the facility with natural light and open views allowing travelers to easily navigate through the Airport.
The signage system developed by Apple Designs was strategically created to match the modern and spacious building interiors and architectural features that included the high-ceiling ticketing lobby, round columns, upper and lower roadways, and curbside functions for arrivals and departures on opposite sides of the Terminal. The concourse concessions located in the center of the corridor required the signage system to address crossover passenger movements while providing clear directional information for both enplaning and deplaning passengers along the primary paths of travel.
