Duravit contributes to an innovative toilet concept in the Black Forest. A new-style sanitary facility in the center of the popular resort of Titisee was opened in April by Hochschwarzwald Tourismus GmbH. The brainchild of Managing Director Thorsten Rudolph and fully fitted out with Duravit products, it offers state-of-the-art hygiene and convenience for the ever-growing number of international bus tourists that visit the town. With over 400,000 international guests in 2018 – several thousand visitors a day – a creative and future-proof solution was required.
Kramer GmbH from Umkirch near Freiburg came up with a sanitary facility in a modular design that takes account of the structural conditions and allows a flexible approach, for future projects, too. The toilet facility with a total area of 796 sf consists of five modules. Spacious wash and toilet rooms for men and women are housed in two modules each. The fifth, smaller module is designed as a barrier-free toilet.
The exterior of the sanitary facility features striking, unconventional portraits in local dress by the famous Black Forest photographer Sebastian Wehrle. The high-quality materials and the color scheme in the interior generate a pleasant, natural and refreshing ambiance, which has been proven to increase considerate use and reduce soiling and vandalism. The toilets are fitted with Duravit products throughout. The shower-toilets by Duravit are a special feature. They enable hygienic and refreshing cleansing with water and can be intuitively controlled via remote control: ultimate toilet comfort as a mini wellness experience for all visitors. Perspex-covered forest motifs and acoustically insulating moss panels combine with natural sounds such as birdsong and the rustle of trees for a typical Black Forest flourish.
