gardens in Changi Airport, the glass sculptures are designed to create the illusion that they are floating on pools

the world, as seeds would travel.
Prominently nestled in the heart of the Central
Piazza behind the Crystal Garden is the brand new Louis Vuitton
store which opened its doors today. The 530-sqm boutique is the
luxury brand’s first duplex airport store in the world.
Ms Lim Peck Hoon, Executive Vice President of
Commercial at Changi Airport Group said, “The Crystal Garden is
designed to engage the senses of travellers while capturing the
carefree spirit of travel, as it greets travellers when they first
step into T3’s Transit Hall. Besides the enriched offering of
luxury goods, cosmopolitan travellers can look forward to an
engaging retail experience in the revolutionary two-storey Louis
Vuitton boutique. Without a doubt, Louis Vuitton’s definitive
French charm and distinct travel heritage plays up Changi’s image
as a world-class shopping destination. We are delighted to welcome
Louis Vuitton to Changi Airport.”
Behind the Louis Vuitton duplex store, the
Central Piazza also offers a new open lounge with plush seating
and soft lighting, a dedicated working area and individual
charging points, all carefully designed to enhance the T3
experience for all travellers.
