Changi Airport Terminal 2

A winning entry from an international competition, the terminal’s facelift has made it greener, brighter and bigger. Centered on a tropical theme, the design of Changi Airport Terminal 2 embraces daylight, lush landscaping and transparency. The entrance is uplifted with a leaf-shaped canopy, shielding travellers from the elements.

A major challenge was to carry out construction without interrupting the airport’s 24-hour operations. Construction was planned and executed effectively in a total of 160 phases.

Keeping to the modern image of Changi Airport, great attention was paid to the details of the interior design to ensure a high quality finish with a rich palette of soft materials.
