Design & Construction
Traditional community toilet structures are not designed to meet the needs of the people they are meant to serve. Users often face the basic constraints of irregular electricity supply, insufficient water, and inadequate lighting. Beyond this, facilities often don’t have separate dedicated spaces for men and women, let alone having any design elements that are specifically designed for children, the elderly, disabled individuals or pregnant women.
Utilizing findings from and in-depth study of the sanitation behavior and preferences of the urban poor, the team endeavored to re-imagine community toilet design to create facilities that people would not just need to use, but want to use as well.
