Parscoop washlights provide indirect illumination in the terminal hall, being aimed at the gloss-white wood panelled ceiling. Various types of ERCO downlights are used in the rest of the building. They are fitted with lamps appropriate to their situation and desired beam characteristics.
Instead of the techno-look, gable roofs in uncovered timber construction, and featuring a quotation from the 'Arsenale' of Venice, form the end of the airy terminal hall. The hall's glass front affords the airline passengers a view across airfield and lagoon to the distant 'Serenissima' towers.
The terminal was designed by architect Giampaolo Mar and pleasantly deviates in its aesthetics from the rather 'technoid' appearance of many other airport constructions of recent years - where it seems more value is being placed on urban qualities than on echoing the forms and technologies found in aviation.
