Singapore’s future terminal
Benoy is the Concept Design Architect and Interior Designer of the highly-anticipated Terminal 4 (T4) at Changi Airport.
Scheduled to open in 2017, Singapore's new 195,000m2 terminal will accommodate up to 16 million passengers per year.
Located on Airport Boulevard, T4 will join the existing Terminals 1, 2 and 3 in catering for the growing requirements of this leading aviation hub.
The compact terminal incorporates thoughtful, passenger-friendly facilities within a design concept that aims to redefine the travel experience.
The interiors have been meticulously matched with soft furnishings, ambient lighting, bespoke user interface counters and ergonomic furniture and facilities.
As a first for Changi Airport, T4 will feature a walk-through retail concept.
Once clear of immigration and security, passengers will be guided along the spacious, tax-free retail walkway. Double height shop fronts will greet the shoppers and add to the drama and excitement of the new terminal.
State-of-the-art facilities have been introduced at check-in and immigration, presenting the traveller with heightened levels of efficiency and comfort.
Benoy’s design celebrates both physical and visual transparency.
The focal point of the new terminal will be the Central Galleria; a glazed, open space separating the airside and landside areas. The design enables departing passengers to stay in visual contact with their friends and family and provides a glimpse at what awaits in the Transit Lounge.
Natural light and soft landscaping are a recurring theme within T4. An abundance of skylights and the inclusion of interior gardens, trees and green walls help to capture Singapore’s national identity as a ‘City within a Garden’.
Through intelligent planning and wayfinding strategies, the experience will be continuous rather than interrupted.
