Reserve Bank of Fiji
Location - Suva, Fiji
As the first, and still the tallest, truly multi-storied building in Fiji, the Reserve Bank Building dominates the Suva skyline. Innovative functional design was necessary to ensure the building met the requirements of a national vault, with the incorporation of tsunami floodgates to protect the underground vaults. Uniquely Fijian design details, such as laminating masi panels into formica for fire door finishing, and using “first cut” Fijian plantation pine for the suspended ceilings, ensured the building showcased Fiji’s design aesthetic.
Architects Pacific have also recently been commissioned to do the renovations of the building facade and porte cochere.
