For my sister who believes way to much of what she reads from her friends. ;o)
Hong Kong’s Peninsula Hotel and the Sofitel Melbourne often attract visitors from around the world who want to visit a loo with a spectacular view. Now Queenstown’s newest hotel, Sofitel Queenstown, is joining that prestigious list with the most eye-opening male toilet of them all.
The second floor men’s toilet, which services the complex’s restaurants including Bezu and Fatz Cat, has been tastefully and aesthetically designed by the complex’s developers Cam Marsh and Mark Perriam of Perron, and Brett Taylor of Group CDA. It features six unique individual ‘stands’ manufactured by Three Sixty Limited in Auckland.
But it’s not the tasteful design or subtle lighting that has tongues wagging in the New Zealand resort town.
It is the six-metre long backdrop of life-size photographs featuring local models in varying poses directly behind each of the six stands – each with a full view of the action.
One has a tape measure out, one a pair of binoculars, another has a camera, a fourth is peering over her glasses and so the list goes on. Queenstown photographer Sheena Haywood shot the images of models from local agency Ican — after Auckland model agencies turned down the job when they heard where the images were going to be placed.
