Design has a vital role to play in creating the highest levels of passenger experience in all of the spaces within the aircraft. Attention to detail, selection of high quality materials and a sensitivity to the practical requirements placed on a lavatories and changing rooms can make these spaces restful, refreshing and functionally refined.
Shown here are images from a conceptual lavatory study focussing on releasing space and promoting hygiene. Around one in ten passengers are significantly effected by concerns around hygeine and find aircraft lavatories stressful environments.
Active cleaning greatly reduces the possibility of impact on the passengers' health and the design gently reminds passengers that this unique measure has been employed for their benefit. Also, by having the lavatory hidden until it is required, more space and cleanliness, actual and perceived, is delivered to every passenger.
