The world's 10 best public toilets for 2015

#6 Wembley WCs

London, UK


Design: Gort Scott

Location: London

Standing over five metres tall and with a stylish gold perforated metal facade, this stylish public toilet stands at the centre of a newly landscaped and pedestrianised area of Wembley, north London.


The base of the building is made of concrete so that it stands up to the inevitable knocks and scrapes of heavy use. Above head-height the structure becomes a filigree, shiny metal screen, allowing for light and ventilation without letting views in.

The perforated water-cut screen further creates the effect of a glowing lantern during the evening.
