WATERMARK | Toronto as a lakeside city

Developed for the new Terminal 1 at Pearson International Airport, Watermark is one of five related yet diverse concepts that convey the essence of Toronto, within the framework of the terminal architecture. Inspired by its presence as a lakeside city, this bookstore concept represents the quintessential place on the water; a quiet spot for contemplation and a good read.

From the concourse, soothing water features engage passengers' visual, audible and tactile senses, enticing them into the store. Within, a clean, shimmering, materials palette mimics sky and water, and graphic treatments show people happily interacting with reading material. A relaxed and calming environment ensues; the perfect respite to humanize the hectic airport experience.
