The Fentress Architects studio planned the terminal, dividing it in various areas, to offer visitors different scenarios. In the Boulevard of Trees there are 160 fig trees, lined up along the boarding corridor; you can sit under their branches on the Crystal armchairs, designed by the London studio PearsonLloyd for Tacchini. A fun fact: the base is hidden, so that the armchairs, with their rounded shape, seem to float on the floor.

Lievore Altherr Molina’s Baobab armchair creates a curious contrast between the full shape of the seat and the elegant profile of the backrest. These armchairs are islands of relaxation located throughout the terminal, and can also be used to admire the Petalclouds, a kinetic installation under the roof of the Central Gallery.
In the Heritage Zone, which reflects the traditional architecture of Katong and Chinatown buildings, many shops entertain people who can indulge in shopping.
