For public use, the mobile bathroom is designed to fit into a recyclable shipping container, and the original metal shell structure has been modified to make better use of natural light. Structurally, the lining is made of flexible material, which can resist small movements.
In this way the walls and ceilings are covered with VIROC cement boards, which are made of a mixture of compressed and dried pine wood particles and cement. The combination of the strength and flexibility of wood and the rigidity and durability of concrete slabs makes it suitable for this type of shell and finish.
The panel does not require finishes such as paint and ceramics. The curved wall installation method allows all hydraulic lines and electrical equipment required for operation.
For the floor, a single large vinyl roll is used, there are no seams, the same concept of flexible materials, and in this case it is also easy to clean and maintain.
For the lighting, a special recyclable PET is used, which will refract the daylight sunlight, and a small 6W LED lamp is installed on the lid for overnight use. As a supplement, one side of the corridor was cut vertically on the metal plate of the container shell, allowing natural light to penetrate, deliberately distorting and highlighting the perspective of the space. The use of mirrors deep in the corridor creates an “infinite effect”.
The partition board has a well-designed geometric pattern to unify and simplify the volume in the space. On the bathroom countertop, the faucet is a “Deca Touch” series faucet with a touch trigger and automatic flow interruption to avoid waste and ensure water savings of up to 70%.
The female bathroom is in a 20-foot container, and the male/handicapped is a 10-foot shorter container. At the intersection between the two boxes, the space formed by the open metal door becomes an outdoor wash basin. The wash basin and mirror are located on a door panel. The glass panel and the roof connect the existing garden in the background and the adjacent The rest are framed door panels, mirrors, towels, candles, trash cans, flowers, etc.
When seeking to integrate the design objects required for personal hygiene and visual harmony, we should pay attention to details to obtain practical experience that does not neglect the human value of the architectural space.
