Singapore’s new jewel
Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel) is set to be an exciting new attraction for Singapore’s Changi Airport.
Designed as a comprehensive mixed-use development, Jewel will feature indoor gardens, retail and leisure offerings, a hotel and facilities for airport operations.
Benoy is the Interior Designer and Retail and Aviation Facilities Planner behind the project, working alongside the consortium of designers which is led by Safdie Architects and includes RSP Architects Planners and Engineers.
Strategically located in the heart of the airport, Jewel has been conceived as a world-class lifestyle destination that once complete will enable Changi to capture passenger interest and boost Singapore’s appeal as a stopover point for travellers.
The new development will sit on a 3.5ha site at Terminal 1, formerly an open-air car park, and allow Changi Airport to expand the terminal’s footprint and so increase its passenger handling capacity to 24 million per annum.
Beneath its distinctive dome-shaped silhouette, Jewel will be the first structure
in Singapore to seamlessly integrate an environment of indoor gardens amidst retail, dining and leisure facilities. The complex, scheduled for completion by the end of 2018, will have five storeys above ground and five below, occupying a total GFA of 134,000m2.
Benoy is also overseeing the Architectural Planning and Interior Design of the new aviation facilities.
New pedestrian links will connect Jewel and Terminal 1 to Terminals 2 and 3 and the MRT, improving airport connectivity and accessibility.
Jewel is Benoy’s second appointment within Changi Airport; Benoy is the Concept Designer and Interior Designer on the future Terminal 4 which is currently under construction.
