When nature is calling for a pit stop there is nothing more rewarding than utilize the own nature to come up with this unusual organic forms, eye-catching and instantly memorable public Toilets.
A Pit Stop entered to a new line in the sanitation world with the belief that customers expect and deserve professional, timely, and quality service. Today a Pit Stop sets the industry standard bar for public sanitation services to a whole new meaning. As we can see in this design.
To be seen in the round, the design comprises two elongated, irregularly curved forms, instantly recognizable from all key pedestrian approaches and terminating a sequence of spaces and elements along the lane way.
These public toilets are located at the Synergy Plaza in the Kumutoto precinct on Wellington’s waterfront.
"The brief was to create a structure with a sculptural form, something iconic, highly visible and unusual." Well well-done to the architecture firm that created this iconic & functional element on a non traditional design.
While they contrast with the linear architecture of the surrounding buildings, making them visually distinct, the curves of the new structure also echo some of the ornate detailing on the nearby sheds.
A metal rain screen, painted the brick red of the neighboring sheds, ties them into the heritage context and enhances their visibility.
