In Vienna, you may have seen the creative and colourful Hundertwasser House. You know, the one with no straight lines, where trees are incorporated into the house. Even the floors are wavy. As Hundertwasser said: “an uneven floor is a melody to the feet”.
But did you know the famous, ahead-of-his-time eco-friendly Austrian architect lived in New Zealand for 25 years? Before he died in 2000, he left this public toilet as a parting gift to his adopted home town Kawakawa on the North Island.
Featuring a glass-bottled wall, mosaic tiles, copper work, cobblestone floors (uneven, of course), the Hundertwasser toilet is a good reason to make a stop in Kawakawa on your way to the Bay of Islands.
