Unique Properties

Boiffils Architectures completely redesigned an existing terminal building, Terminal 2 of Singapore’s internationally renowned Changi Airport, comprising 120,000m² across three levels. Our agency’s focused on traveler experiences and connections to the earth’s elements, particularly in the Departure and Arrival halls, and has provided Singapore with a new 21st-century gateway to the ‘Garden City’.

Airport, Passenger's experience, Biophilic, Parametric, Natural materials, Craft, Garden, Landscape

Production Technology

Another major contributor to the human experience is Boiffils Architectures’ use of artisanal materials wherever possible. The agency is proud to have engaged craftsmen from very small firms to create many of the elements.

Design Challenge

As the first step in travel, airport experiences can be daunting. Boiffils Architectures endeavored to create a serene multi-sensory environment allowing passengers to enjoy the calming effects of nature. The project was designed as a journey across an indoor landscape encompassing minerals, water features, and lush vegetation in various forms and densities.

Project Duration

After submitting our winning bid in late 2018, we spent most of the first year to further develop our design concept. Construction of Terminal 2 at Changi Airport broke ground in 2020, and opening began in phases in 2022. On November 1, 2023, an official ceremony unveiled the entire complex, several months ahead of schedule.

Operation Flow

Beyond just attempting to put forth an eco-friendly project, our focus was really on creating a calming environment for travelers, and in doing so, it has become a benchmark for this type of ecological design.

Research

The entire project is a dialogue between technology and nature, but with the technology largely concealed to highlight the natural elements. The technology provides comfort and efficiency, but the human focus is what defines the user experience.

Inspiration

We prioritized passenger pleasure and comfort through punctuations of visual, auditory, and interactive experiences. Our proposal placed the priority on the traveler experience, rather than on the management of passenger flow. The idea was to romanticize the airport experience, infusing pleasurable moments into increasingly stressful travel scenarios through a series of visual, audio, and interactive stimuli
