In designing the General Aviation Terminal at Zagreb Airport, the architect took inspiration from the sky, requesting a ceiling that brought the space closer to the passenger experience in the air.

Creating a Bright and Welcoming Environment
The westernmost passage of Switzerland’s largest railway hub sees more than 100,000 travellers crossing through every day. So, it was essential to create a positive environment that evoked impressions of light and calm – where commuters and passengers could enjoy cafés, food courts, boutiques and shops in visual and acoustic comfort.
As well as solving the challenge of creating a bright, welcoming environment, the team needed to work around the everyday operation of one of Europe’s busiest transport stations. METAL Q-Clip Microperforated ceilings with acoustic fleece were the ideal solution, delivering outstanding brightness and acoustic comfort to this underground space, while also being fast and easy to install and maintain. With a clean, seamless and monolithic aesthetic, the ceiling brings shape and definition to the passage – brightening every journey for travellers to Switzerland’s largest city.
