Dyson reveals washroom winners

  • 1 Comment

Paul McAnerney Architects and Brunskill Design have won top prizes in Dyson’s competition to design the washroom of the future

The brief was to design toilet facilities that featured a Dyson Airblade hand dryer and were both high-tech and sustainable.

Brunskill Design’s ‘Power of the People’ design is powered by the kinetic energy of its users, aiming to benefit from high footfall at train stations and airports. The door hinges pump grey water from the sinks to the toilet cisterns.

The Auto-wash station design by Paul McAnerney Architects uses reconstituted antibacterial stone for the washbasin counter and splash back.

The third winner, James Furse-Roberts, named his design the ‘Sustainable Education Pavilion’. The pavilion’s roof collects and stores rainwater which is piped to the sinks and toilet.

Marcus Hartley, Dyson engineer and judging panelist, said: ‘Sustainability is essential in everyday design. The winners have shown it’s possible to reduce the waste and energy consumption of washrooms by considering sustainability from the outset.’

  • I can't see any merit whatsoever in Paul McAnerney Architects's design...
