The world's 10 best public toilets for 2015

#3 Kumutoto

Wellington, NZ


Design: Studio Pacific Architecture

Location: Wellington, New Zealand

Perhaps the most unusual-looking toilets on our list, Kumutoto, in Wellington, New Zealand have been described as looking like some kind of armour-plated insect or robotic dinosaur. But as well making a strong style statement, these loos are also designed to be practical.


According to the designers, 'As well as taking into account practical considerations such as security, hygiene and vandalism, the brief was to create a structure with a sculptural form; something iconic, highly visible and unusual that was also well integrated into the visual and historical context of the surrounding precinct.'
