SWANSEA ACCESSIBLE LOO

A new fully accessible toilet on the main street of Swansea from which a stunning view across Oyster Bay towards the Freycinet Peninsula is afforded (from the sitting position... via one way glass). The structure is carefully positioned under a copse of mature eucalypts at the end of an existing lookout deck and directly opposite a pedestrian crossing from the local museum and tourist information centre. The back of the toilet uses the proximity of an existing drystone wall to make a wind protected gathering space for small groups of people - waiting to use the loo, sheltering from the strong nor-easter, or perhaps just hanging out.
