eastbourne public toilets


The new toilet block in Eastbourne is located in an active precinct incorporating the local pool, yacht club, scout hall, playing fields, wharf, library and village. The new structure needed to encapsulate an existing concrete pump room and new Exeloo prefabricated units.

The concept was to wrap the pump room and the Exeloo units within a simple, economic light battened structure. The timber portals holding the structure together and the batten screen are carefully set out. Above the battens pull back to reveal a lantern top which illuminates the structure at night.
