Thematic Toilets 2 – Nature’s Call

July 13th, 2007   •   7 comments   

If you think country-themed loos are cool, wait till you check out the rest rooms at Labrador Park. They are not only aesthetically decorative but educational and insightful too! And the contents within the commodes are curated and contextually relevant to their location too. They are also sparkling clean which is unusual for outdoor-based toilets.

Now you can enrich and fill your mind while emptying err… something else…

Olive Toilet 1
Here’s the entrance to the men’s room, decorated with dragonflies and blades of grass.
Olive Toilet 2
Splashed with green leaves, trees, fruits, butterflies and lizards, the decor adds live to an otherwise dreary necessity. Here you can BOTH answer nature’s call and learn about her as well. He he….

Olive Toilet 4
While immersed in your own “aquatic” pursuits, find out all about the creatures of the cove in the much bigger sea out there.

Olive Toilet 5
Labrador Nature Reserve isn’t just about things that swim in the seas. They do have many beach hopping birds too as you can see from here. And of course, the omnipresent insects.

Olive Toilet 6
I like the clear and large photographs which were put up. Here are two photos of common skinks (not stinks mind you!) adorning the walls just next to the urinals.

Olive Toilet 3
The geniuses behind the amazing artwork and curation are wonderful kids from Zhang De Primary School. You guys have done yourselves and your school proud! Now, let me look for the toilet paper amidst the “grasses”…

    That’s cool washrooms… no more screaming lizards like in the past. Or even random condoms… =X

    Hmmmm… well there were some lizards (real live ones) in there actually but it is clean. No condoms spotted!

    This is cool…hmm…but they’ve got primary schools involved in decorating toilets now? I think that would have been fantastic if it was a self-initiated activity, but why do I have this sneeky feeling that as if many things here, it was not some random act of inspiration?

    haha… david, I think you probably know the answer as much as I do… Still, it is a nice effort and one more step towards getting our young to be more aware and appreciative of our natural environment!

    Glad that they have done something about the smelly lizard infested toilets! I suppose its also part of the effort to brand and position Labrador Park as an eco-tourism destination of sorts…

    Wow! Very interesting bathrooms! I am renovating my bathroom and I want to decorate it in a nature-themed style! For the moment I have only put new tiles from Roca.
