A large proportion of today’s public restroom users view privacy as an essential amenity. As all-gender restrooms rise in popularity, privacy has taken a fundamental role in restroom design.
Although there are several avenues through which privacy can be achieved, toilet partition design offers a balance of practicality and privacy that other solutions cannot.
This course will review the factors that have contributed to privacy as an expectation, design solutions that can achieve privacy in commercial restrooms and ADA compliance considerations relevant to privacy.
