David Morley Architects multiple office bathroom project
-completed by architect Simone Close
TOTO friends and fellow Clerkenwell residents, David Morley Architects, recently completed a bathroom refurbishment project within its own office that focused on achieving high sustainable standards without compromising on quality.
Within the project, David Morley Architects specified the newest sustainable technology - the reAqua unit - a grey water recycling system which reduces water consumption by up to 30%. The specialist unit actively collects and recycles used shower water from the first floor bathroom to flush two TOTO MH wallhung WCs on the ground floor.
Applying a sustainable ethos throughout, the architects have in turn provided an improved lifestyle offering for the entire practice. The installation of the new office shower rooms are designed to encourage people to run/ walk/ cycle to work thus reducing C02 emissions.
TOTO’s eco-efficient offering highlighted in this project includes a dual flushing system to the MH WCs which can be adjusted from 4.5 liters’ or 6 liters’ for a full flush and 3 liters’ for a short flush. Incorporated as standard and unique to TOTO is the powerful Tornado flushing system which applies jets in a whirlpool motion to effectively clean entire surface of the bowl. Also included as standard is the ultra smooth CeFiONtect glaze which requires fewer chemicals for cleaning, leaving a long-lasting finish that prevents the build-up of bacteria, limescale and waste matter.
