Client: City of Copenhagen
Date: June 5, 2014
We started by developing numerous concept variants. Selected concept were visualised through renderings and scale models.
After client approval we planned and documented engineering aspects of building, water, electricity, etc.
Decona manufactured the CPH Urban Toilet and installed it on Halmtorvet in central Copenhagen. More units to come during the next years.
Furthermore, the Urban Toilet is designed with emergency situations in mind, making it easy for paramedics to extract a collapsed person from under the doors. The toilet is also a lot lighter, simpler, smaller and cheaper to install and maintain than other public toilets, making it an attractive solution for cities around the world. Its simplicity has created the opportunity of seasonal use, making it attractive to install on beaches and in parks around Copenhagen during the summer.
The CPH Urban toilet is a collaborative project between UiWE and Sara Nanna.
