Panoramic Cooling

The water is piped through a 20 meter long garden hose from the existing sink on the ground level to the rooftop. There it is collected in a pool. It is shaped very flat and covered by a polysterne multiwall sheet, so that the water can heat by the sunlight. Another hosepipe brings the heated water down to the shower cubicle. The wastewater is drained off through the existing roof rail into the canalisation. The shower cubicle is designed as an open-air space, which covers only the essential. Thereby less material is needed and at the same time a wonderful view over London’s skyline is offered.
