The terminal complex facade is treated as a single glass band, which is "wrapping" the building around the perimeter and emphasizing the higher central volume, where the main entrances and the main lobby are located. The compositional dominant of the main airport hall interior are the columns, lined with stainless steel and evoking associations with aircraft turbines with their outlines. The choice of the glass with the low reflection effect as the main cladding material will allow to achieve the street and interior space interpenetration effect and the thought out evening lighting will make the complex a noticeable landmark both for people driving up to the airport and for passengers flying up by plane. One of the concept key elements will also be the "Meeting Point" art object on the terminal square, a meeting place for passengers and guests of Tolmachevo airport.

"The main idea of the architectural and planning concept of the airport is in the unity of its exterior implementation and interior content. Internal public spaces serve as a natural and integral continuation of the facade solutions of the building, making conventional the boundary between its external envelope and interiors, thereby forming dynamic contemporary image of the city air gateway", says the author of the project, architect Sergei Choban.
