Copenhagen Airport is not only full of quality interior and exquisite design - we also have many exclusive pieces of art and architectural details that are worth noting. Take a look inside...
Terminal 3 at Copenhagen Airport - designed by Vilhelm Lauritzen AS and completed in August 1998. Glass, steel, aluminum and granite is shaped as a flight's wing which perfectly compliments the Airport feeling.

Terminal 2 was opened in 1960. Once again Vilhelm Lauritzen AS stood behind the building that has been expanded and rebuilt several times. The terminal's simple design as a large and center-less building with inserted and replaceable floor slabs was selected in order that it should be possible to expand without stopping the building's operation.  The terminal is one of the finest examples of Danish modernism.

Stairs at Terminal 2. Most of the floors at Copenhagen Airport is made from Padauk, Merbau or Jatoba. These kinds of wood are known to be strong and having a very long life - and in addition it has a warm glow.

Insinde Terminal 3 at Copenhagen Airport. The significant number of 22 meter high pairs of columns that run through the building provides space for the light, creating a feeling that is almost monumental. The design also makes the great space uncluttered and easy to navigate in.

These beautiful birds are flying under the ceiling at gate D2, Pier D. These are created in glass by the Faroese artist Tróndur Patursson in cooperation with the Danish glass master Per Steen Hebsgaard.  The glass has a third dimension because the light shines through and makes the colors vary throughout the day depending on sun's position.
