Old Hill Street Police Station

Rainbow shutters decorate this former police station.  


The Old Hill Street Police Station is a former station used by the Singapore Police Force. It now stands as a historic building with an amazing facade. 

The building has a total of 927 windows, each with a wooden shutter painted in one of the colors of a rainbow. 

The colored windows on the first four stories all contain the same vibrant intensity. As visitors look upward, they’ll notice the upper windows gradually intensify to accentuate the cantilevered balconies.

With its selection of cantilevered balconies, columns, colored shutters, and gable walls set off against each other, the old police station is a great example of Neoclassical architecture. It’s also a popular photo spot.
