The Project

Our fit out of the Five Spice food court needed to create a dining location that was more than just a functional area in which to grab a quick bite. Instead, we’ve created a space that offers an authentic dining experience, dedicated to the regional flavours of Southeast Asia.

Taking inspiration from the local Singaporean hawker centre scene, the dining hub boasts 16 different food stalls, occupied by local heritage and award-winning food brands. To accommodate each of these entities, we created bespoke kitchen spaces featuring specialist equipment that meets the needs of the varying cooking styles of each cuisine.

As well as ensuring a high-specification and durable finish, able to meet the demands of this high-traffic dining space, our fit out incorporated modern art, colourful murals and Peranakan tiles that create an authentic, laidback dining experience. All completed within a live airport environment, without ever compromising the visitor experience or the protection of this high-security site.


Minimal Disruption

Our team’s experience of delivering fit outs within a live environment ensured the project progressed even while base build construction was ongoing.

Security Assured

We liaised carefully with the joint developers CapitaLand and Changi Airport Group building management teams to ensure smooth and secure access of personnel and materials within a high-security airport environment.


Specialist Features

With multiple food stalls, detailed coordination was required to cater for the differing requirements of the distinct Asian cooking styles.
