WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

SPLASH, the ecofriendly laundromat is different to others laundromats and it’s very affordable and clean. The designer used steel panels as the vertical surface element in the area of washing machines and dryers, which disappear under it. The orange tone reflects everywhere on the metal and serves as a warm counter element to the cold metal. Since the eco-friendly aspect is important as well, the washing machines and dryers are state of the art in terms of sustainability. Even the wastewater is pre-treated. The remaining areas are treated with neutral elements: shiny white tiles -commonly used in spaces with water, light coloured floor and a false ceiling made with black vertical plates. The long length lay-out of the floor is interrumpted by counters for folding clothes, the waiting areas, and entertainment zone. At the entrance, neon lights are used as an element of communication and the shop window playfully appears to be supported by clothslines. The unconventional design of such a basic facility can be seen as an example of diversification and conceptualization of common goods and services.
