The new terminal, which cost S$1.75 billion (US$1.22 billion), features hundreds of skylights to allow natural light to enter the building, a 300-meter-long and five-story high green wall of tropical plants and an air-conditioning system designed to use less power.

Terminal 3 features a unique roof architecture which will allow soft natural light into the building while keeping the tropical heat out. The one-of-its-kind roof design has more than 900 skylights with specially designed reflector panels which will automatically adjust themselves to allow an optimal amount of soft and uniform daylight into the terminal building. At night, the skylights will glow with artificial lighting delicately concealed below the reflector panels. The overall effect would be a soothing ambience at all times of the day.

The new terminal is also designed to handle the Airbus A380 superjumbo jet, which Singapore Airlines recently started to operate.
