Differing from the high-tech image of contemporary airports, San Francesco d’Assisi is assimilated into the Umbrian landscape and has its own recognizable identity. The new airport (4,700 m2) is made up of 8 square-plan pavilions built in reinforced concrete and painted red, has green copper gabled roofs, and features large glass walls. The pavilions are connected by a visible beam structure and sections of glass brick roofing, which allow daylight to pass into the airport. The spaces are illuminated by Cestello-type fixtures of various forms and intensity, fitted with AR111 lights, mounted on the walls, ceiling and integrated into the architecture.
