Kyoto St. Catherine High School Restroom






洗面台は新たに造作した。ホワイエの中心に並べて2つ配置し、トイレ空間に回遊性をもたせた。 壁には既存のタイルの上から淡いミントグリーンを塗装し、2.3メートルのラインより上は何もせずに躯体あらわしとした。淡いミントグリーンと、照明の光が鏡面のように反射する特殊なグレー色が混ざりあい、トイレというよりは実験室のような、魅惑の空間となった。

一般的に女子トイレというと、ピンクに代表されるような、かわいらしいイメージが根強いが、それとは違い、挑戦的で、未来を向いた、強くて美しい女性の「さま」を、この空間で表現できたのではないかと思う。(瀧尻 賢)

A high school bathroom renovation project that even expressed the beauty of women.

This project was a women’s toilet design competition for a private high school with nursing education as its central focus.

We were asked to use the power of design to renovate a toilet, an enclosed space often found in schools, into a new place. We decided to create a space that was filled with booths by two operations.

The enclosed space filled with toilet booths was transformed into a space created by two operations.

One is a planar operation. A single diagonal line is drawn to divide the space in two; the second is a cross-sectional operation, 2.3 meters in height from the floor, and I decided to design only the area below the line where the ceiling finish had been applied before the renovation.

Each space, divided in plan and section, is divided into a foyer and a toilet booth, and the Robby is gently connected to the common corridor.
Initially, pink was envisioned as the primary color. Still, in the process of creating the space in response to the school’s request, it was decided to use green and gray, which are complementary colors to pink as the base color.

The washbasin was newly built. The two are placed side by side in the center of the foyer to create an accessible toilet space. The walls were painted a pale mint green over the existing tiles, and nothing was done above the 2.3-meter line to reveal the frame. Pale mint green mixed with a unique gray color that reflects the light like a mirrored surface, creating a fascinating space that resembles more of a laboratory than a toilet.

In general, women’s toilets have a strong image of cuteness, as represented by the pink color. Still, I believe that this space could express a challenging, future-focused, strong, and beautiful woman. (Satoshi Takijiri)
