The Royal Brunei Police Force Headquarters was completed in 2014 and designed with symbolic characteristics reflecting strength and structure on its southern face and transparency and openness on its northern face. The architectural symbolism showcased in the building’s design reflects the purpose of the Police Force which is to provide transparency and order in the justice system.
The building’s large windows allow lots of natural light to penetrate into its interior spaces, reducing the need for electricity and interior lighting. It also highlights the spectacular floor pattern created by RetroPlate applicator, BUE Brunei.
According to BUE Brunei, the lobby floor was designed to mimic black galaxy granite and white marble, but with polished concrete and colored stains and dyes. The final result is impressive, but even more impressive when natural light and shadows come into play throughout the day. The floor design is always changing.
