The Brief

Scott Browning were part of the team designing an alternative scheme for the Heathrow airport expansion for the new Terminal 6 Campus known as Heathrow West.


Our design incorporates a processor and a satellite pier connected with 300 m long passenger bridge spanning over aircraft stands and the taxiway. The bridge connects the new terminal to a satellite pier, offering a new passenger experience. The journey across the bridge will be an integral part of arriving, departing and transfer passenger journey. 


The covered multi-modal transport interchange allows passengers to arrive by car, bus, taxi, bike or train, and separates the pedestrian from active vehicle flow. From the upper level passengers will experience the tree canopies and greenery of the levels below; all brought together under an arching vault roof. This covered plaza incorporates a railway station, hotels and below ground parking.

To operate as one terminal complex with the existing Terminal 5 baggage handling system, a fully automated/robotic baggage handling system has been developed.

The scheme offers innovative and robust solutions for this site; minimising the land required, whilst achieving the required hub capacity. Inherently flexible, it will enable the campus to flourish and adapt to changing passenger expectations over time.
