Woods Bagot works with DFS Concessions at Changi Airport Singapore
The firm was tasked by DFS to design and deliver the retail façades and complete interior packages of these new stores. While the original concept was provided by Wonderwall during the bid process for DFS, it was later interpreted by Woods Bagot who delivered the concept from schematic design to construction phase.
Store designs were developed for Terminals 1, 2 and 3, with large structural alterations taking place for the two larger stores in Terminal 2 and 3. Voids were created in both of these stores with existing facades reconfigured to maximise retail frontage and open up access and sight lines.
In Terminal 3, DFS now offers a range of spirits, wines and tobacco, all housed within the new two-level boutique store. It features panoramic product displays and customer engagement areas, with a centrally located tasting bar acting as the focal point of the store under the parasol canopy that spans both floors. In Terminal 1, a modified version of the parasol has been incorporated to suit the single level.
The developments at Terminals 1 and 3 are now open, with Terminal 2 expected to be opened in mid-2016.
