Haydar Aliyev Airport is an international airport located about 12.5 mi (20 km) northeast Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. It is a busy and important flight hub for the Caucasus region that is located at the border of Europe and Asia between the Black and Caspian Seas.
In 2012, the airport's passenger terminal was updated to make it more welcoming to travelers and to give it a nighttime presence. To achieve a contemporary look, the building was constructed of glass and covered with a metal mesh frame. This new modern exterior façade needed a lighting solution that was both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
A total of 2,400 Vaya Linear White LED fixtures in 4000K (now specified using Vaya Linear MP, White & Mono) were mounted on the underside of the metal mesh frame. The light reflects off the glass structure, resulting in a soft glow that brings out the architectural details of the building but is not harsh or overwhelming.
Vaya provided a reliable and cost-effective LED solution that minimized the initial investment of the project while offering low energy consumption and minimal maintenance.
