Designing an enhanced Changi Experience

Cosy spaces which are more than just looking nice

Beyond making things ‘look nice’, design can enhance the passenger and user experience in an airport environment. Travelling can be stressful for infrequent travellers, and good design, like making spaces more open yet still cosy, as well as using a warmer palette of materials, colours and landscape, can help calm nerves and enhance the overall passenger experience. Enter Design Management (DM) team, whose mission is to bring out the Changi Experience through thoughtful design – personalised, stress-free, and positively surprising, while being user-focussed with a spirit of hospitality.
