International Air Force Base
Design in Defense
An international base was required in order to store 48 F-15 fighter jets and house maintenance crews and pilots. The team took the liberty of designing the hangars as opposed to providing the typical hangar design. The design consists of slanted roofs for the hangar and flat roofs for the adjoining mechanical and support spaces. This module is repeated throughout all the hangar buildings. Sand louvers were required in order to supply the mechanical systems with fresh external air.
