Jewel at Singapore Changi Airport is a new mixed-use development featuring gardens, play areas, a hotel and retail.
The complex covers an area of 137,000 sqm and will have a total of 10 floors – five above ground and five below.
Designed by architect Moshe Safdie, Jewel features a dome-shaped facade made of glass and steel.
The concept for Jewel’s design stems from an extension of Singapore’s reputation as a City in a Garden.
Special features include a Forest Valley and Rain Vortex in the middle of the complex.
The Forest Valley is a five-storey garden filled with thousands of trees, plants, ferns and shrubs. It houses one of the largest indoor collections of plants in Singapore.
At the centre of the complex there is a 40m indoor waterfall, called the Rain Vortex.
The Rain Vortex transforms into a Light and Sound show at night.
When it opens, Jewel will be a signature destination that will add to Changi Airport’s appeal as one of the world’s leading air hubs.
