Branch was recently invited to participate in a competition to redesign San Francisco's JCDecaux public toilets and kiosks.
JCDecaux Public Toilets & Kiosks Design
Since its founding, San Francisco has had nearly 250 years to define an iconic aesthetic, recognized and remembered around the world. Yet now more than ever, the look of the city is changing and evolving. As we explored how the new design for the JCDecaux Public Toilets and Kiosk intersects with this evolving city, we strove to create modern, welcoming structures that blend in but also help define the look of the San Francisco of the future.
All four of these structures are designed to reference and embody classic sculptural San Francisco architectural elements, presented in a forward-thinking way. We referenced the geography and topography of San Francisco, and we were inspired by elements of the city’s rich maritime history. All of these structures are designed to integrate and adapt with technology as it develops, keeping their aesthetic relevant for many years to come. Above all they should be well-designed, easy to service, maintain and use.
