Passenger terminal Souda
The terminal will be the first element of interest to be seen by the arriving visitors as the ships will be approaching the pier. As such, the building aspires to function as a modest landmark, a building that is unique not only by its design but also in the way in which it is integrated in the port and its surrounding context. The program of the Terminal is arranged in two floors with an overall height of less than 10 meters. The ground floor is recessed to provide shaded space in the perimeter and the main entrance, and it contains the main lobby and visitor’s services, check-in areas, administration offices, utilities and secondary spaces. The first floor is connected to the lobby through a large atrium and an escalator, and contains the main waiting areas of the Terminal, the café and the jet bridge connections to the boats.
