Aurland public toilets / Saunders arkitektur & Wilhelmsen arkitektur

As we already published the Aurland Look out project by Todd Saunders & Tommie Wilhelmsen, we are featuring now the public toilets included on that amazing wooden platform.

More pictures and drawings after the break.

From the Look out text:

“The architecture of the public toilet is opposite of the lookout. While the lookout is light looking the pubic toilet is black painted that is more heavy and solid in appearance. The building is pushed slightly over the edge. The gives it drama yet also creates a facade that is inaccessible to the public. People can look out to the great view from inside the toilets, but no one can look in.”

    Beautiful work. I’m not sure that it seems right to have public toilets be so prominent in the landscape though (if the surroundings are as unspoilt as they appear)..?

    Wilhelmsens stupid vision coming true : “I want the roof, the wall and the floor to be just one element” … He does this in everything he does. So funny folding shit today too … biiiip.
