Today we cross the pond to see a creative, beautiful, modern bathroom in England! These pictures were taken by a dear friend who passed through Paddington Station while working on a musical remount in London. It’s about time I had a male counterpart contributing to the search for memorable commodes…look at what I would have missed! (Ignoring, for a moment, the fact that I’m all the way across the Atlantic, in a former British colony!)
He reports that use of the loo cost 30 pence, and the sight alone was well worth it! Personally, I love the egg shape of the urinals, and the repetition of circles in the room and in its lighting and plumbing fixtures. The curve of the wall is an ingenious design idea: it appears to provide some privacy for the user. Can you imagine standing at one of those urinals? The gents on either side of you would be out of your peripheral vision, and despite being in a large, public, functional space, you’d enjoy the illusion of a little privacy.
My man in the field (or in the can!) has a eye for detail; he remarked that the bathroom featured Dyson hand dryers. (They are nearly his favorite hand dryer; Vortex makes his preferred model.)
Thank you, Contributor, for bringing home for us this unique and striking bathroom in London! Thank you Paddington for creating a lovely private space in the midst of a traveler’s chaos.
