Project Overview 
Spinks Airport Terminal

Haydn Cutler Company
& The City of Fort Worth

8,000 s.f.
Completion Date

Clad in metallic blue, aluminum panels that cascade in height down from the highest level at the central lobby, this F. B. O. terminal for Spinks Airport in Fort Worth has a minimalist exterior to complement the architecture of the surrounding airplanes. Developed with private funding, the terminal was designed in concert with the City of Fort Worth, the end tenant. The completion of the project marked the beginning of a new phase of development for Spinks Airport, southwest of downtown.

The design forms a linear station between two types of transportation- the land side for automobiles and bus transit & the air side for aircraft to taxi up to the lobby entrance. This building provides services to those flying in private aircraft, including business and V. I. P. passengers. Amenities include: pilot’s lounge for pilots to relax during wait times, V.I.P. lounge, conference rooms, and business center for travelers. Tenant spaces are located along the major corridor running the length of the building with the lobby situated in between. On the air side the lobby features a tall glass wall with projecting sunscreens to provide large open views of the aircraft.
