Today, Seletar Airport is Singapore’s second civilian airport, serving general aviation (such as training, medical evacuation & MRO flights) and business aviation (private jets) users. The current terminal will be torn down when the new facility opens.
The new, two-storey terminal is sited at the eastern side of Seletar Airport. It will have a gross floor area of 9,500 square metres, of which 500 square metres will be dedicated to serving business aviation passengers.
Designed for around 700,000 passenger movements per annum, the building will be significantly larger than the current terminal, which handled about 26,700 passenger movements in 2015. This will support the relocation of scheduled turboprop flights from Changi Airport to Seletar Airport upon the completion of the new terminal in end-2018.
The layout of the new terminal is dictated by clean lines and a functional design to keep the travel experience simple and efficient for all passengers. Passenger operations will take place on the ground floor, with a clear separation between the departure and arrival areas. To handle scheduled commercial flights, the departure area will have 4 check-in counters, four immigration counters, two security screening stations and a gate holdroom which can seat close to 200 passengers. Departing passengers will be able to go through check-in, immigration and security screening in a fuss-free manner via a straightforward route, enabling a quick and stress-free boarding process for passengers.
Passengers travelling on chartered business jets and private jets can look forward to a private drop-off area and a dedicated check-in area where they will be able to enjoy quick pre-departure clearance in a private and exclusive setting. The terminal will also feature amenities such a lounge area and dedicated immigration and security screening areas for these passengers.
Drawing inspiration from its lush and serene surroundings, the new terminal will sport a modern tropical look on the faÃ§ade and in the interiors. The design blends warm woody tones with a theme of nature, with a landscaped garden in the middle of the terminal. Accessible from the drop-off area at the entrance, the garden will provide a calm oasis for departing passengers and well-wishers.
On the airside, passengers will be able to board their flights conveniently with 3 aircraft parking stands adjacent to the terminal. This reduces the need for passengers to be bussed, enabling greater operational efficiency and faster aircraft turnaround time. The three aircraft parking stands will be supplemented by another 60 located at the rest of the airport.

Located 20 minutes away from Singapore’s bustling centre, the city-state’s newest residential development, Sky Habitat, is nearing its completion. Designed by the architect behind the famed Marina Bay Sands resort, Noshe Saddie, the complex is 38-stories high.
Its tall stature is representative of the high-density, high-rise housing that remains in great demand across many Asian cities. The residential complex consists of two tower blocks which are connected at the base and by three bridges at its upper levels. Two of the bridges have landscaped circulation routes, while the third upper bridge has an elevated swimming pool from which one can see the city’s rapidly developing skyline.
Just like its orthodox counterparts, the project includes common amenities at ground level in the form of outdoor spaces and communal gardens. Above its sunken parking podium, the site has been developed to contain lush gardens, outdoor event rooms, swimming pools and walking paths.
The structure has been rationalised to maximise air movement in the region’s tropical climate, thus allowing for cross-ventilation and multiple exposures in every unit. Additionally, many of Sky Habitat’s apartments boast of individual balconies, roof terraces and gardens.
The complex also mimics a village-like clustering of residential units, which one can see in hillside developments. Its development as a result can be seen as an integration of architecture and plant life into a singular experience.
