Cambridge 2000: Chesterton Road: Jubilee House (toilets and office)
The third toilet block (public convenience) designed by the
architects for the city,
being at the edge of Parker's Piece and
at the edge of Midsummer Common on Victoria Avenue.
The main architectural feature of this one is the roof,
which is zinc over timber.
There are four toilet cubicles:
two "standard" ones; one which provides disabled or "carer
and baby" access; and one which is allegedly for females
only (it's hard to see how that is going to be enforced).
The female-only cubicle is just visible at the front of the
building, and the entrances for the other three cubicles
are behind on the left side of the building. One of the
two "standard" cubicles was not ready when the toilets
officially opened on 22 December 2008.
The building has a one-room office at the back (so, the
section painted faint blue), overlooking the river Cam, and
including a balcony. But, in true Cambridge style, there
is no car parking available, making the office much less
attractive to most businesses.
Outside there are four underground recycling points, each with
a stainless steel, and hopefully vandal resistant, chute, as
seen in the photo. In addition rainwater is harvested from
the roof and is used in the flushing of the toilets.
