The refurbished Basement 2 level of Changi Airport Terminal 3 has been unveiled, featuring an event space, an indoor garden and new shopping and F&B offerings.
Equipped with a giant ultra high-definition screen, the dedicated atrium space St3ps amphitheatre can accommodate more than 200 people. The space will screen movies, and sports matches and host school holiday activities and performances.
The event space also features a full-height green wall, decorated with sparkling lights.
In the 440sqm art-themed indoor garden, visitors will soon be able to see large-scale sculptural installations and more than 15 plant varieties.
“With the redesign, we have opened up this entire area to bring in natural daylight, add greenery with a new themed garden and brighten up T3 B2,” said James Fong, VP for Landside Concessions at Changi Airport Group.
“The new T3 B2 reflects our continuous efforts to create exciting shopping and dining experiences at the public areas of the airport. We know that many fond memories are forged at Changi – families gathering for a meal before sending off loved ones on a flight, spotting planes and enjoying the play facilities – and we want to continue to make the airport a go-to destination for the whole family.”
As part of the revamp, 50 retail, service and F&B stores are launching at the terminal.
New F&B outlets include an aviation-themed food hall concept Terminal M by MOF featuring Korean, Chinese and Japanese cuisine, Japanese two-in-one concept Ramen Champion & Hokkaido Paradise, Thai cuisine and dessert cafes Saap Saap Thai and Saap Saap Thai Desserts, local cafe Mr Teh Tarik Express and a multi-concept F&B outlet comprising Stuff’d, Crave and new brand Coffee Boy.
