Oslo-based Studio Designed The Most Scenic Modern Toilet Facility

The latest architectural addition to Norway’s scenic tourist routes is a rest area featuring a modern toiletfacility that sweeps upwards from a poured-concrete viewing terrace. Oslo-based studio Haugen/Zohar Arkitekter (HZA) designed the Ureddplassen rest area for a site along the Helgelandskysten Norwegian Scenic Route in the northern region of Gildeskål. Ureddplassen is popular with tourists and local residents as it provides a beautiful spot to observe the northern lights in winter, and the midnight sun in summer. The entire space has been updated to create a better experience for travellers heading north on the coastal road.
