Desired capacity was based upon service of two simultaneous Regional


Jet departures in regularly scheduled domestic passenger traffic (60 seats
per aircraft for a total of 120 seat gate hold capacity). This capacity was
further supported by the potential to service narrow body jets in charter
operations and the potential to handle diverted flights from Denver.

VISION AND SENSE OF PLACE

A communitys airport plays an important role in communicating the


regions image to the rest of the world. The airport is the gateway to the
region for a great number of visitors each year and the first and last thing
travelers see. It is also the place that welcomes home residents of the
Cheyenne region, and it should be a great source of pride. An overall
coordinated vision benefits the long-term and incremental growth of
airport facilities and helps unite planning and design efforts over many

years.

Sense of Place Boards Developed concurrently with the terminals programming and early
building and site design, Sense of Place research was conducted to
inform how the design relates to the site, as well as inspire the buildings
forms and materials.

Cheyenne Sense of Place Research
Referred to as The Magic City of the Plains Cheyenne, the capital of Wyo-
ming, is the gateway to natural wonders, relics of the frontier, and outdoor
recreation. Research was conducted to identify historical, cultural and
physical attributes important to the city and region resulting in a collec-
tion of representative imagery ranging from industry, architecture, topog-
raphy and cultural influences. The goal of this task was to determine the
most appropriate and meaningful imagery that best conveys the spirit of
Cheyenne.

Key Findings:
A Junction of Railroads- influencing history (first transcontinental
railroad) industry, and culture
Topography/Landscape - unique landforms , arid plains, and
wildlife
Architecture - style, material, and form
Culture/Heritage - western frontier and cowboy heritage

The development of an all-encompassing design concept relating to


certain physical or cultural aspects of the area can contribute greatly to
making the airport experience an inviting and memorable one. From this
regions unique topography and landscape to its frontier heritage and
deeply rooted western culture, it offers a vast breadth from which to draw
inspiration that embodies the most unique aspects of Cheyenne and the
region.

Topography and Landscape

The topography and unique landscape of endless horizons, vast plains,


and outcropping landforms inspired the development of a color and
material palette reflective of Cheyenne and the surrounding region.
Important man made elements also characteristic of the landscape were
used to inform pattern, texture and form. Railroad tracks create a uniform
and linear rhythm and pattern cutting through the landscape while snow
fences follow the contours of the landscape creating weathered visual
texture and unique shadows . All of these elements contribute to a design
that is rich with sense of place and meaningful to Cheyenne.

Western Icon

Cheyennes deep western frontier heritage is an important part of the


citys past and present. There is strong iconic and identifiable imagery
associated with the cowboy and the cowboy culture. The craftsmanship
and design associated with saddles, cowboy boots, and western gear is
very artistic and beautiful. The tooled and embossed leathers, the silver
accents and the filigree patterns can all inspire materials , colors and
patterns for the interior design.

Architectural Design Research
At the beginning of Schematic Design, Architectural Alliance International
researched the unique qualities of the City of Cheyenne, its history, cul-
ture, and its relationship to the natural surroundings. Four main concepts
were identified, which in turn informed the main concepts for the design of
Context the terminal building:

Context
Both the local context of the immediate site and the larger context of the
City of Cheyenne and the Upper Great Plains were carefully studied. From
the natural context, weve identified the regional weather, the prevail-
ing NW winds, and the strong solar orientation as important elements .
Moreover, man-made structures like the snow fences and the railroads as
well as the vernacular buildings became a source of inspiration for parts of
the design.

Porch Porch
The concept of a porch can be found at both regional vernacular buildings
and more contemporary designs, and functionally relates to the transi-
tional space between the inside and the outside of the building. Experi-
entially, a porch functions as the front door for arriving and departing
passengers.

Screen
Screens are architectural elements used to modulate and filter sun light,
control winds, and filter or screen views. Inspired by the local snow fences
Screen and railroad cattle cars, these screens also have the potential of introduc-
ing dynamic and controlled patterns of shadow and light into the building.

Sustainability
With the belief that every buiding design is a careful response to its natural
and cultural sites, the schematic design represents an energy efficient
building that implements the sustainable strategies of daylighting, water
efficiency, use of local and renewable materials, and highly efficient me-
chanical systems among others.

Board determined that the multi-story building was still justified because
the cost difference was determined to be insignificant, the second story
gave the building additional presence on the site, it programmatically
made sense to separate the administrative functions, and because of the
efficiencies allowed by the partial basement.

Gate Hold and Security


The Gate Hold area was increased from a capacity of 60 in the Feasibility
Study to 120 in Schematic Design to allow it to accommodate two simul-
taneous regional jet departures (the ability to accommodate narrow-body
jets and to handle diverted planes from Denver was also a factor in this
decision). The Security Checkpoint was enlarged to allow it to accommo-
date the latest TSA requirements.

Workshop 1
Workshop 1 was held on 27 September 2010 at the offices of the Cheyenne
Regional Airport. Present were representatives of Architectural Alliance
International, SEH, Airport Director David Haring, and Airport Staff.
The Feasibility Study was validated, especially relative to changes in
airport operations driven by the addition of American Eagle service and the
closure of the existing restaurant.

The design process was explained, and examples of previous projects


were shown.

Results of initial Sense of Place and Architectural Design Research were


presented.

Sustainability was identified as an important consideration, especially


to the extent that careful building design, orientation, and selection of
appropriate building systems could reduce long-term operating costs.

Workshop 3
Two alternate exterior expressions were presented. Both options show a
curbside faade dominated by glazing with vestibules projecting through
the faade, and both are anchored by large stone or concrete panels.

Option 1 utilizes a random patterned metal screening element along


the upper stories, used to moderate the solar exposure into the spaces.
Option 2 shows a more consistent upper faade of metal panels,
interrupted by large glass openings crowned by projecting roof forms
which act to shield the sun.

The options demonstrate two possible treatments of a curbside canopy


one a solid projecting element and the other made up of glass and steel.

The Board preferred Option 2, but expressed some concern that the design
was still too heavy or boxy, and further expressed concern about the
building being dominated by flat roofs. This concern was addressed in
subsequent refinements of the final Schematic Design.

south elevation
0 5 15 30 FT

Building Elevations
The Schematic Design proposal orients the curbside faade to approxi-
mately due south, aligning it with the runway beyond. This orientation
allows for favorable solar access, bringing in south light which can be
modulated by sunscreening elements and deep overhangs, allowing for
more sun in the winter months when it is needed, and less in the summer
months when it isnt.

The south faade is grounded by light colored precast concrete panels at


the east end. These are envisioned to relate to the tones of the light sand-
stone that is found regionally, and will have texture and tones to enliven
west elevation them. At the ground level, there will be extensive glazing that is shielded
0 5 15 30 FT
by the deep roadside canopy. The glazing will be penetrated by the two
vestibules and the rental car offices, which are envisioned to be clad in
wood on both the interior and exterior.

The building massing steps up to its multi-story massing, and at the far
west end is terminated by the stair and elevator tower, which is again clad
in the precast concrete panels.

north elevation
0 5 15 30 FT

Building Elevations
The upper story of the terminal is clad in a mix of copper metal panels and
in select locations, large expanses of glazing that bring daylighting deep
into the space. These windows will be carefully located to take advantage
of views, and will be treated with sunscreening elements as their exposure
requires. Windows on the buildings north faade are able to bring in
daylight without concern about heat gain or glare.

The precast panels and metal panels wrap the more utilitarian portions of
the terminals airside, but the Gate Hold, Restaurant, and Upper Gallery all
have expansive views out to the airside and are treated with glazing and
east elevation articulated copper panels.

Building Sections
In response to the Boards concerns about a flat-roofed terminal design
and that the building looked too boxy or heavy during Workshop 3, the
exterior design was reevaluated. A Butterfly roof was determined to be a
good fit for the terminal, providing a light feeling roof with deep overhangs
to provide sun protection. This roof form allows water to be controlled ef-
fectively, keeping it from running onto either the curbside or the airside. It
also allows for rain water to be collected and retained for site irrigation.

Building Renderings
A continuous clerestory window immediately below the deep overhang
makes the roof appear to float over the building. The continuous glaz-
ing at the curbside makes for an easy transition between the interior and
the exterior spaces, with the fireplace visible and inviting. A smaller light
monitor over the ticketing hall brings sunlight into these spaces.
