FORRESTPERKINS
Bathroom Pods	
With social distancing and regular disinfecting now
normalized, we were inspired to create a unique restroom
experience with biophilic elements such as indoor gardens
and water features, with generous space centered on
completely self-contained, custom bathroom pods.
Upon entry and exit, guests transition through seamless
portals emitting UV cleansing light. Technology is used
in wayfinding to help the user understand the layout,
operation, and occupancy of the space. The view into the
restroom is opened up, the hygiene stations have become
a feature to be experienced as you travel around a large,
oval interior garden below a grand skylight bringing in the
warmth and wellness only the sun provides.
Traveling into the pod chambers, the guest is welcomed by
a calming interior rain curtain and circular pool which also
helps to filter the air and provides a calming soundtrack to
the senses.
The pods incorporate touchless sensor and self-cleaning
technologies and utilize antimicrobial finishes throughout.
By design, these pods can stand alone, be positioned
within a public space or even perhaps as a sculptural
element in a beachside resort garden. The pod façade can
be one of great sculptural value to any space.
The design of the pod interiors can be easily scaled to
fit any market. We imagine the luxury pod to be one of
immersive and choreographed experience with welcoming
messages, soft transition lighting controlled by sensors,
individual temperature control, personalized music, and
even voice-activated ability to request a weather update
or even assistance should one feel ill. All surfaces are
seamless for ease of cleaning and instantly convey safety
and cleanliness.
The "plug-and-play" attribute of the pod design makes it
flexible for a variety of applications-whether interior or
exterior, traditional or out of the box. Not only would this
reduce construction schedules and lead times but it would
provide an increased sense of calm and comfort for those
using the facility while promoting health in a non-intrusive
way. Regardless of the market application, the pod
provides for a private, safe and curated experience-by
definition, it is the new luxury we didn't know we needed.  ❙❘❚
