A Warm Welcome

Landscaping Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam, NL

Developing a durable strategy for landscaping Schiphol, not only for greening the airport but also to make public space a key feature of its identity.

One of the most important elements of the green corporate identity has been the systematic planting of birches in all empty and unused spaces. This ‘green haze’ puts into perspective the facades and the viaducts and binds together all parts of the airport into a coherent whole.

Coming out of the airport, passengers are immediately immersed in Dutch culture, providing a welcome transition from the hectic airport into the Dutch landscape.
