The folks at the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) have thought of everything in creating the ultimate consumer experience at the long-awaited new Terminal 3.
It’s a spectacular place, spacious, futuristic and user-friendly all in one. We were given a sneak preview of the terminal by CAAS Director (Commercial) Lim Peck Hoon this week and we liked what we saw.
One of the highlights is the ‘Green Wall’, a five-storey, 300m high vertical garden, consisting of over 250 different varities of creeper. It’s an omniprescent feature of the airport, that runs through Arrivals, Departures and all other levels and which can be seen everywhere.
And we mean everywhere. Our rather unusual picture – courtesy of the CAAS – is an internal shot taken from the men’s washroom in the Departures Hall. As can be seen, the users can gaze out at the Green Wall, literally at their convenience.
Our second image below gives another view, this time from landside. Somewhere behind those creepers is a quite remarkable (wash)Room with a view.
