Luxury airport lounge is a jewel in the crown

“A place one might want to rest on one’s travels - the brass and gold elements feel like jewel accents that works well with the name,” Joshua Zinder, Judge.

Project: Jewel VIP Lounge

Award: Transport- Transport Hubs, Bronze, 2022

Location: Singapore

Design practice: Benoy Limited

Client: Jewel Changi Airport

Jewel Changi VIP Lounge is an exclusive and luxurious lounge in Jewel Changi Airport catering to an exclusive group of Jewel guests such as government ministers and high-net worth individuals.

With a design inspired by a ravine - a crack on the Earth's surface - the main body of the space is clad with monolithic natural materials such as wood and unique stones. As the space is only a bijoux 145 square metres, the designers focused on exceptionally luxurious details and fine, tactile carpentry, lighting and furniture.

Design Highlights: The Jewel Suite maximizes the compact area by creating various functional spaces that serve different needs. The main lounge welcomes guests upon entry and houses the bar, complemented by a TV lounge with an adjacent balcony that overlooks the greenery of the Forest Valley, and an intimate private lounge for added privacy.

  • LEAD DESIGNERS: Terence Seah, Mia Devika
