Words from the designer

"Located at the Mumbai Domestic Airport, this hangar was designed for a corporate body.

The challenge was to achieve balance within the given space -- integrating the quintessential utilitarian 'hangar' into a 'stylized' corporate identity."

"The basics became all important in this project, considering it was a first of its kind for us.

For Instance -- 'We require an aircraft hangar that meets Wyvern standards' was part of the brief that came from the clients. This task involved researching into the specifics of the international standards of hangar facilities, for which we collected most of the information from avionics library books."
