reststop akkarvikodden

along a scenic tourist route in lofoten, norway, is 'roadside reststop akkarvikodden', a toilet facility completed by 
oslo-based manthey kula architects. part of an initiative to install observation platforms, stopping points and connections
to existing points of interest, this structure creates a hybrid experience of nature and design. a replacement to a previous
restroom which was destroyed in a coastal storm, the weight of the 10mm corten steel walls are cast into concrete foundations
and welded together with steel plate reinforcements.
