When Gaston Flosse was re-elected in 1996, he decided to convert the barracks into a presedential palace. The architect in charge of the project was Pierre Lacombe and his instructions were to preserve the aspect of colonial, military architecture on the 19th century, but modernise the comfort. The palace has a garden with an attractive water fountain and flowers and plants chosen to add an exotic touch to the architecture. Like with any government institution, access is regulated and visits must be arranged in advance.
