New ATC tower

As part of the commission for key airport buildings for the Khartoum New International Airport the ATC tower represents the tallest structure. Its large distance to the public landside called for a bold volume to be recognised as an icon for the airport.

A folded volume merges the tower shaft with the cabin, which houses the ATC at its top level and apron control below. This was achieved by wrapping a second skin made of textile net around the straight vertical concrete creating this forward leaning dynamic image. Different daylight changes the appearance of the tower skin.
