Mark Power unveils South Bank 'Jubiloo'

  • Comment

[First look + plans] Mark Power Architects has completed ‘The Jubiloo’ - a public WC on London’s South Bank

The payper-use pavilion, which will be operated by Healthmatic, was inspired by Roman galley remains discovered in the area in 1911.

The 134m2 glass-clad structure features a lapped timber-boarded soffit and a gold aluminium roof.

Planned to open in time for the Diamond Jubilee Weekend, the facility features 11 unisex cubicles and six urinals.

Kate Hoey MP for Vauxhall with Southbank Centre chief executive Alan Bishop cut the ribbon on the building last week.

Bishop said: ‘We are delighted to be able to host the new Jubiloo to complement the wonderful refurbished Jubilee Gardens, which opens next week.

‘The Jubiloo will improve further the visitor experience on the South Bank and no one will have to cross their legs while watching the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on 3 June.’

Hoey said: ‘The Jubiloo is another example of how the South Bank partners continue to innovate and invest in the area to maintain its position as London’s premier visitor destination boosting the local and London economy.’

The pavilion will be staffed by six locally-recruited attendants. The project won planning permission in November.
