The idea of naturally processing the waste through septic tanks and constructed wetlands is well-suited to a quick installation in a less developed area without infrastructure.
Set in a complex of conservation buildings that collectively has a rich history, the project rightly put effort into integrating historical classical motifs with the functions of the modern bathroom.
The jury appreciated the conception of the master bathroom beyond a space to take care of bodily functions, to a living space where the users can read newspapers and exercise.
The house featured 4 different bathrooms each with its own unique design that fit its specific location in the house and the user’s requirements for it
The design of the Cater-Pee is an interesting concept for an outdoor toilet. Its organic form and colour is unique and appropriate for parks and open spaces.
The washroom at level 1 of the house was cleverly tucked into a corner of the dining room with a traditional ceramic vent on the external wall providing natural light and ventilation.
The single storey structure housing the Male and Female wash rooms as well as a security counter boldly celebrates a much needed amenity for visitors to the sprawling gardens.
