As an international hub for passengers, it is important for Changi Airport Group (CAG) to create a comfortable and pleasant travel experience for those travelling in and out of Singapore. The Group’s Airside Concession Division (ACD) and Design management (DM) teams worked together to rejuvenate the Transit Hall in Changi Airport’s Terminal 1 (T1) West wing, to bring more prominence to the shopping street and add capacity to the area with new F&B and lounge areas.
Boasting an aesthetic and elevated design with a brand-new light installation and a revamped seating area, the completion of the refreshment of the West wing came just as Singapore was named the most Instagrammable place in the world by travel publication Big 7.
What’s new in the zone
Running with the tropical garden theme of Singapore and Changi Airport’s interiors, the refresh was based on the concept of creating a ‘garden party’ - integrating retail, entertainment, and lounge, with an infusion of greenery to bring the outdoors indoors. From the nursing rooms to the TV lounge and F&B zones, each area within the zone was revamped and designed to fit the new theme.
