Overview

To create a cohesive design throughout the Chicago O'Hare Airport: Terminal 5, complimentary decorative glass was installed in the airport restrooms and on balustrades surrounding the second floor mezzanine.

Visible to both arriving and departing passengers, the balustrade features a graphic representation of popular flight patterns, positioning Terminal 5 as the "Gateway to the World" and creating an innovative sense of place.

Privacy patterned glass provides safety and light diffusion.

Graphics can be applied to add creativity, inspiration, information and illustrations. Goldray's printing technology can fuse color into the glass or apply to the surface. Whatever the design intent, Goldray has the capabilities.

Glass In Action

The Chicago O'Hare Airport International Terminal was commissioned by The Westfield Group and designed by Epstein Global, in conjunction with the conceptual designers at Thirst Design Communication. John Kolb - Epstein Global's associate Vice President and Lead Architect on this project describes the design intent, "Chicago Airport Terminal 5 was designed 21 years ago by Perkins+Will. It's modern, clean design is recognized and appreciated. We did not want this to feel like a renovation that didn't consider the existing architecture. Instead we wanted to adhere to it, but make it better".
