The YVR Vancouver International Airport asked Ambius to create a design that not only beautified North America’s highest-ranked airport, but also improved air quality and provided a calm and welcoming ambiance in an otherwise fast-paced environment. Ambius has enjoyed a long-term relationship with YVR, this being the latest of many projects.
The A-B domestic terminal Connector’s design includes architectural features that evoke imagery from B.C.’s vineyards and orchards, fishing lodges, and the Fraser River, with its rocky mountainsides, waterfalls, streams, and vegetation outcroppings. Thanks to the A-B Connector’s high ceiling, Ambius installed ficus microcarpa nitida trees, along with smaller plants, to create the effect of a canopy of foliage in the new foyer. Ambius also installed a living green wall as part of the project.
