Public toilet at Alexanderplatz

We have completely restructured the original toilet facilities at Berlin’s Alexanderplatz, which date back to the 1920s: Compared to the old facility, access is now possible either via the spacious staircase or via a barrier-free lift. The toilet areas are now accessed in a star shape from the central reception counter.

 

“The high-tech toilet (…) is architecturally trend-setting, with large windows, a noble entrance made of dark granite, with glass mosaics, stainless steel frames and, inside, even with picture motifs and a Berlin panorama. It is about the most modern capital city toilet” Der Tagesspiegel, (28.08.2007)


Elegant light and dark contrasts, generous glass surfaces and anthracite colour floor, as well as the stainless steel and black natural stone, evoke a modern metropolitan character. The large-size architectural photos by Tobias Wille reflect the atmosphere of Berlin by night. In combining the highest quality equipment with calm tones, a unique aesthetic is generated – deterrent to the threat of vandalism.
