Health Care Centre Facilities
Health Care Centre Facilities
Jerudong Park Medical Centre
Jerudong Park Medical Centre (JPMC) is Brunei’s premier private healthcare provider where sensitivity towards patients’ privacy and their need for quiet surroundings is of utmost priority. Our team designed the new reception and waiting lounges to suit the patients’ needs without exposing their vulnerability. A “feel-at-home” concept is applied for a comfortable and relaxed visit.
JPMC Fitness Centre
A refreshing new look incorporating fresh graphics, colours and materials was introduced to the existing fitness center to raise the standards of the center while encouraging fitness activities. The extension has allowed space for more facilities and equipment hence adding value for its users.
The Brunei Cancer Centre &
The Brunei Neuroscience Rehabilitation Centre
Built on a stunning location surrounded by forest and sea, the Brunei Cancer Centre serves as a healing hub, not just for locals but also for patients from neighbouring countries. Fitted with the most advanced equipment, the Brunei Cancer Centre aims to be Brunei’s first Greenmark Platinum Project while offering patients a tranquil, healing environment.
RIPAS Hospital Radiology Department
The refreshed look of the Radiology Department at Brunei’s main public hospital sets new standards for the interiors of government health facilities with the use of natural materials and clever application of graphics and signages.
DST Flagship Store
Datastream Technology (DST) is Brunei’s leading integrated communications service provider. Their Signature Store, which spans some 7,000 square metres, is the largest DST store in the country. It encompasses an integrated approach to DST’s services ranging from mobile and broadband services to bill payments and the provision of an interactive environment where customers can try out DST’s latest products and technologies to appeal to a generation used to fast cutting and high-action graphics.
Kadai TelBru, Various Locations
The interiors of the new retail outlets for TelBru - Brunei’s private telecommunications company – reflect the company’s new brand colours with graphics and product displays for customer engagement, keeping in line with TelBru’s business strategy to further improve its level of customer service and upgrade its retail identity.
As part of the rebranding exercise, the lobby of the DST Headquarters building was redesigned with a distinctive look and feel that reflects the brand new identity of DST. This includes the provision of new activity nodes that are meant to engage visitors in the building.
DST Building 4 & Staff Gymnasium
For the new DST building, we created an interior that is chic and trendy by utilizing the newly launched brand colours and guidelines in ways that blend seamlessly into the existing headquarters complex.
BIBD Headquarters Level 10
The meeting, training and resource facilities are located on the 10th and 11th floors of the Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) headquarters in the capital. Our team combined Brunei’s handicraft materials and timber in various hues to create diverse spaces infused with accents of local tradition.
Director General Offices,
Public Works Department
The predominantly monochromatic design scheme is in line with the ‘clean slate’ approach practiced by the department in executing various projects on behalf of His Majesty’s government. Our team’s usage of graphic patterns on feature walls, ceilings, floors and sandblast patterns on glass surfaces are aimed to enhance the mood of the spaces while engaging the users’ emotions at various levels.
Public Works Department Lobby
The design for the lobby of the Public Works Department reflects the department’s modern approach in the application, usage and promotion of green materials in their projects. Accented with green walls and landscaping, the newly renovated lobby displays the creative undertones taken by the department in communicating their green designs for the built environment.
Centre of Strategic & Policy Studies (CSPS)
With strategic applications of the CSPS core branding colours and a set of warm complementary materials, the overall creative changes elevated the appearance of the spaces on Level 2 - resulting in a better working environment for the users.
Jerudong International School Sixth
Form Center & Administration Block
For the design of the Sixth Form Center & Administration Block at Jerudong International School, we wanted to encourage creativity and communication amongst the users of the space with a playful application of the school colours, fun graphics and text. The new center is appreciated by the staff and students for its modernism, simplicity and happy atmosphere.
KIP Hotel Melaka
We made references to the Peranakan culture when designing this 3-star hotel located in the historical city of Melaka in Malaysia. Through the usage of graphics, colours and the careful selection of Peranakan-inspired furniture, the interior of the hotel pays subtle tribute to Melaka's rich historical past and colourful present.
The Wharf Restaurant
This stand-alone restaurant located on Bandar Seri Begawan's waterfront is designed as a concept venue for Royal Brunei Catering (RBC) to showcase fresh seafood in a modern and stylish setting. The marine-themed décor adds to the whimsical feel of the restaurant.
The Empire Hotel & Country Club
We took The Empire Hotel's signature luxury to a new level when we converted the Waterfall Block into The Empire Residences. When designing the interiors of the new residences, we took a cue from the opulent settings in the building's lobby area. Traditional woods were used in a modern way, blending with a mix of rich materials to create a new and understated luxurious style for these exclusive accommodations.
The Empire Hotel & Country Club
As the most luxurious resort property in Brunei Darussalam, The Empire Hotel caters to a discerning clientele that expects the ultimate in style, luxury and glamour. To implement the refurbishment of Pantai Restaurant, we worked with Wilson Associates to give this restaurant a bold new look, introducing stylized elements through the use of carefully chosen finishes and the finest materials, and by bringing an unprecedented level of sophistication to the Brunei dining scene.
Private Residence, Beribi
This renovated property on a tranquil family estate belongs to a young royal couple. The residence was given an elegant new layout with spacious rooms setting it in a class of its own. Carefully selected designer furniture, accessories and fittings complete the regal modern setting for the newlyweds.
Private Residence, KB
This high quality and meticulously finished residence in Kuala Belait is designed with a sophisticated interior that is meant to be a refined statement of the lifestyle and taste of the young entrepreneur owner. The interior is created with some of the finest materials and finishes, giving the residence a very luxurious feel.
One Jalan Gadong
Harmony is achieved by balancing colour and materials in the design of these high-end apartments that are located on the bank of the Brunei River. The apartments' timber floors provide compositional continuity and contrast with the predominantly neutral palette of the interior and both serve as the perfect backdrop for displaying each tenant's or buyer's personal furnishings.
Private Residence, Jalan Muara
For the design of this opulent family home, we sought to maximize design efficiency within the existing spaces without compromising comfort, luxury or function. Handpicked designer furniture, customized cabinetry and detailing set an eclectic tone in the interior.

"We initially engaged Wan and his team to explore design options for a kitchen renovation and as the work progressed, it expanded into a complete house renovation. We explored many design options before settling on the option best suited to our taste, and contracted Wan and his team to oversee the complete renovation as a result of the design engagement, which included full pricing and site management activities. The result was a complete overhaul of our entire house, to the extent that it now looks and feels like a completely new home. As with every major renovation, new challenges appeared during the build phase however Wan and Team were very flexible and worked to find a solution that worked for us. A job well done."Donncha McCarthy
