What look like dream homes from an architecture magazine, are in truth toilet blocks on Norway's roads. Once again it proves: the Scandinavians simply love modern design.

 

01

Gildeskål

A futuristic rest stop with sea view can be found in Gildeskål. Haugen/Zohar Architects and Landskapsfabrikken AS built this combined rest stop and memorial. It is reminiscent of the U-boat "Uredd", which sank off the coast here during the Second World War.

This toilet block in Moskenesøya offers a hip mix of stainless steel and concrete. The surroundings are also very beautiful. Moskenesøya is situated on a southern island of the Lofoten.
