Keflavík Airport, Iceland

Winning design for airport area

Team KCAP with Felixx has won the international competition for the strategic master plan of the Keflavík Airport Area in Iceland with an integrated vision that links an ambitious economic development concept to sustainable urban design, landscape, and mobility strategies.

The masterplan seeks to transform strategic locations in the airport area into a showcase for the country’s ambitious economic development and sustainability strategies. It was this approach—together with the proposal for collaborative development between public and private sectors—that earned the team the first prize. The second and third prizes were awarded to international consortia led by Arup and Jacobs respectively.

The client praised the winning proposal as "a crucial step to realizing our future vision for the airport area. I’m thrilled to partner with Team KCAP on this project of national importance."

Felixx is responsible for the integrated landscape strategy of the master plan. Tapping into the government’s climate action plan that identifies reforestation as a top priority, the landscape concept connects the Airport Corridor into a national network of reforestation projects.
