Changi Airport Group (CAG), the operator of Changi Airport in Singapore, has unveiled the airport’s latest garden concept based in the Transit Hall’s Central Piazza in Terminal 3 (T3).
The Crystal Garden features tiered garden beds incorporating a curated selection of flowering plants and 12 spheres of artisan dandelion glass sculptures in varying sizes. Inspired by the flora and fauna of the other gardens in Changi Airport, the glass sculptures glow with luminance, creating the illusion that they are floating on pools of water, offering passengers a captivating and unforgettable experience.
The Crystal Garden is the seventh feature garden at Changi Airport and comprises 1,735 Bohemian glass components hand-blown with different finishes, giving the sculpture richness and texture.
Opening alongside the new garden, Louis Vuitton launched its first duplex airport store in the world, further strengthening the retail experience in CAG’s Central Piazza. The store will complement the two existing duplex stores from Shilla Duty Free’s Cosmetics & Perfumes and DFS Wines & Spirits. Located behind the Louis Vuitton duplex store, CAG also inaugurated a new open lounge area with plush seating, soft lighting, a dedicated working area, and charging points for mobile devices.
Lim Peck Hoon, executive vice president of commercial at CAG, said, “The Crystal Garden is designed to engage the senses of travelers while capturing the carefree spirit of travel, as it greets travelers when they first step into T3’s Transit Hall. Besides the enriched offering of luxury goods, cosmopolitan travelers can look forward to an engaging retail experience in the revolutionary two-story Louis Vuitton boutique. Without a doubt, Louis Vuitton’s definitive French charm and distinct travel heritage plays up Changi’s image as a world-class shopping destination.”
