Escondite

Some simple but fun & uplifting artwork on this washroom wall at Escondite, a rustic Mexican restaurant & bar in downtown Montreal. The sink was the pièce de résistance.


Golden Gecko

A very happy loo at this hip Aussie cafe, Golden Gecko, in Toronto’s westside


Arthurs Nosh Bar

It’s pretty normal to queue for an hour or more for a decent Montreal brunch as I did here at Arthurs Nosh Bar but it’s so much more worth it when there’s an awesome restroom


VIDEO: Toilography visits Embassy Bar

Dan from Toilography went to Embassy Bar in Toronto’s Kensington Market, a bohemian area renowned for its street art. The words of wisdom graffitied onto these washroom walls certainly didn’t disappoint.

VIDEO: Toilography visits Assiniboine Park

Dan from Toilography went to Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg and saw these funky shipping container toilets, as well as a statue of a rather famous bear named Winnie. Take a look at the video here:

The park’s washrooms were constructed in 2013 and have even picked up a couple of design awards in the years that followed. I was definitely glad to have had the chance to come here!


Composting toilet at MEC

It might not be the most interesting loo to look at, but it’s a pretty cool concept. MEC in downtown Winnipeg has a composting toilet on their second floor, the contents of which is collected in the floor below and used as fertilizer.

I’ve since found out MEC has a Green Buildings initiative, of which the Winnipeg outlet was the first retail building in the country to comply with a national standard of reducing energy consumption by 50%. The composting toilet is of course part of this initiative. Good stuff!!
