The idea behind the design of SKYLINE News + Gifts is a modern reinterpretation of the simple city corner urban-industrial newsstand. The newsstand’s clean lines and simple efficient layout allows the traveler to simply negotiate the newsstand and easily find what they are looking for among a wide variety of merchandise.
The traveler will be drawn into the space to slowly browse at their leisure or have the ability to quickly grab a newspaper and a snack before running to catch their plane.
The design and material palette for SKYLINE is inspired by memories of vintage urban-industrial newsstands in combination with the 21st century modern airport design that surrounds them in SFO’s newest world-class terminal.
