Lead8 has been appointed lead designer for the planned Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) Terminal 1 renovation. Working with Airport Authority Hong Kong, Lead8 will spearhead a collaboration of internationally renowned consultants to deliver a transformative upgrade to the passenger halls of the aviation hub.

The Boarding Gate Transformation project is expected to be completed in 2021. Lead8’s design scope includes a total overhaul and upgrade of the 49 boarding gates and adjacent areas of the Level 6 departure concourses.

The renovation work will include upgraded technologies at all boarding gates, along with new and refreshed beam seating across all departure waiting areas. In addition, retail and service cabins will be upgraded with more convenience for passenger access, all targeting to deliver a more fluid experience for travelers.

“The refreshed look of the terminal will bring an inviting ambience that combines new technological features to convey convenience and comfort to the terminal’s local and international travelers when transiting to and from Hong Kong,” said Chris Lohan, co-founder and executive director of Lead8.

Contemporary seating designs with upgraded charging facilities will provide passengers with convenient and comfortable waiting experiences. The retail and service cabin facilities have also been upgraded to offer a rejuvenated environment for awaiting passengers.

Lead8 has also curated a number of entirely new experiential zones that will provide places of entertainment, relaxation, and on-the-go work and general downtime spaces for passengers awaiting flights.

“The combined enhancements of the transformed facilities at Hong Kong International Airport’s signature Terminal 1 building will further solidify our city’s status as a key international and regional aviation hub,” added Lohan.
