Public toilet is perfectly integrated into the landscape
A public toilet fits perfectly into the landscape park in Austin. The beauty of nature and the Colorado River are preferred by many drivers and cyclists. The Cabinet is the first cabinet in a park of more than 30 years - the project was funded by a foundation and designed and directed by Miro Rivera Architects.
Public toilets with a sculptural appearance
Public toilets fascinated by a sculptural look and is a great example of modern architecture. The construction consists of steel plate 49 - the width and height of the panels vary greatly. Slightly twisted structure can of course be the building. The plates are offset from one another - allowing a good flow of air and light into the toilet. The door and the roof, also made of steel, add the general concept. Metal, with visible signs of treatment creates a visual link with the landscape.
Public toilets in the park in Austin, Texas, United States
Public toilets are accessible to people with disabilities and with everything you need. Urinal, sink and toilet are made of steel. Outside, a bench, a shower and drinking fountain were still mounted. The building requires almost no maintenance and is extremely easy to maintain - no artificial lighting, additional ventilation required - the area of health of the steel is extremely durable and able to withstand the problems of bad weather.
Miro Rivera Architects has already become known for its modern residential buildings. The toilet in the park of the city of Austin is no concrete evidence that the functionality and style can go hand in hand
