Appreciation towards Zhubo Design for providing the following description:


This project located on the Road intersection (Beihuan Road and Yiyuan Road), architects designed a border-less plan layout making the nasty toilet blank out behind greening surrounded, assimilate into nature. Boundary between architecture and nature becomes ambiguous. Toilet compartments are gender-less. Architects introduced design case of central park landscape to maximize toilet’s availability. Working as a shortcut towards the park, it includes several leisure seats for passengers to rest and wait.


设计在 立面上采用8K镜面不锈钢材质,其外观随着光线的更替,四时的变化呈现出不同景象。建筑与周边的景物交织在一起,既和谐地共存着,又似消隐于树林掩映中。当人们步入其中,其身影亦成为了建筑立面的一部分,促成了一个有生命的建筑形态,建筑在这瞬间成为了一个简洁并有力的艺术装置。

8K mirror stainless steel is adopted as facade material that varies along with different time and lighting. Architecture is integrated with surrounding in harmony and fading behind nearby forests at the same time. Besides,passengers also play a part in the appearance of facade, while the toilet is vitalized and being an infectious art installation.

A green bucket is set up under tree containing a sink and two urinals for children.Such device releases the pressure for limited quantity of toilet compartments and increase the joy of children’s toileting. It could also avoid embarrassment for parents gardening in toilet.
