The magnitude of the new T4 in Barajas is made harmonious through the use of materials such as Natural Stone, able to give shape to highly operational and humanised spaces.
The leading-edge architecture that defines Terminal 4 of Barajas Airport in Madrid, designed by the Spanish and English architecture practices Lamela and Richard Rogers Partnership and inaugurated in 2006, is a magnificent example of Natural Stone as a timeless material with close links to avant-garde architecture requiring construction solutions of enduring beauty and intelligent functionality. The team of architects behind this emblematic project did not hesitate to use Mistral marble for its 123,000 m2 of flooring, completed by 6,000 linear metres of skirting. The hardness and high-wear durability that characterise this material were doubtless pivotal in its selection, in addition to the harmony of its natural beauty that is fully in tune with the imposing undulating bamboo roof, with shapes that integrate into the gentle external topography and cannons of light that create a fluid and enveloping atmosphere within. In a space transited by millions of travellers, Mistral marble succeeds in guaranteeing high durability, and its beige hue is certainly an important quality for visually enhancing the brightness of this vast terminal, like a stone skin that remains impervious to the passage of time.
