The wcs at the Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, designed by the Richard Rogers Partnership with French architect Atelier d'Architecture et d'Urbanisme C Bucher, reveal a more bunkered approach than that of Foster's window- on-the-world wc (see below) at the Commerzbank. This effect is reinforced by the fairfaced concrete walls. The floor finish is non-slip ceramic tiles; mirrors are mounted on stainless-steel supports set 30mm away from the wall. Wash basins, originally designed to be inset, have been specially glazed on both sides. The taps operate on an infra-red signal.
