If you've travelled through Singapore's Changi airport it's likely that you've stepped foot on a Brintons carpet. Over 300,000m² of Brintons wool-rich woven axminster carpets can be found on the floors of the world's best airport, throughout Terminals 1, 2, 3 and now in the cutting edge Terminal 4 (T4).
Brintons has enjoyed a successful relationship with Singapore's Changi Airport Group for over 25 years and is thrilled to have been commissioned to supply 75,000m² carpets to the airport's Terminal 4 building.
Five years in the making, the S$985 million two-storey Terminal 4, opened in October 2017. Working in partnership with Singapore's SAA Group Architects, UK based Benoy Ltd and Brintons' installation partners Arista Interior Décor Pte Ltd, Brintons' global team of designers and project managers developed a high performance, contemporary design solution for the floors.
The thoughtfully designed axminster carpets provide a sophisticated backdrop to the dynamic, vibrant and colourful interior. The terminal's interior design draws inspiration from the orchid petal. The symmetrical petal motif is applied ubiquitously across the interior finishes and was carefully translated by Brintons designers into a stylised, huge scale pattern for the floor. The flooring design was built up layer by layer, giving the pattern incredible depth and texture. Technically challenging, it was critical that the carpet patterning was smooth and seamless, providing transitional flow across the width and length of the vast concourse spaces.
