From the architect. 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.

"The architecture of the public toilet is opposite of the lookout. While the lookout is light looking the pubic toilet is black painted concrete 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."
