MISC | Best small airports?

We often hear about the best and efficient large airports, such as Incheon and Changi, but are there any similair awards to small airports?
Such as the best looking, most efficient etc. small/private airports?

Tallinn airport has a really nice, cozy and quiet feel to it. It has very comfortable waiting areas and waiting times at security, checkin and luggage pickup are usually nill .

The design is inspired by a traditional Estonian farmhouse.

Nice finds! I love how small airports often have a more local design than the generic "international wow architecture"

Wellington Airport has a rather unique International section designed to mimic the rocks of the nearby coastline.

to be honest, small airports tend to have better architecture than the big airports that are clean but look ugly, such as sydney airport

Hualien Airport in Taiwan:
Only 4 gates serving domestic flights, but nicely designed.

I think Porto Airport was voted best small(er) airport several times and well deserves this.
