The new Kumutoto Toilets on Wellington's waterfront are now open.
Designed by Studio Pacific architectural graduate Bret Thurston, the unique, eye-catching forms of the toilets have been the subject of much recent media attention. Each of the two toilets is fabricated from a series of concentric concrete rings fitted with an overlapping red steel shell, with a sculptural tail that rises up to provide natural ventilation. As well as providing much-needed public facilities for the area, the organic forms and bright colour of the toilets makes them a feature of the precinct.
