This unisex public toilet module, which straddles the male and female bathrooms, has been designed to ease the problem of long female queues.

There are often long queues for the use of women’s public toilets – a result of the fact that females can take up to three times longer than males to use the bathroom. Despite this habit, male and female bathrooms are typically the same size.
Gentolet is a toilet module that has been designed to sit between the male and female bathrooms, and serve both. It increases the rate of cubicle use per unit area. When there are no male users, the toilet becomes accessible to the female side. When the door on the males’ side is open, the door on the females’ side is automatically locked, and vice versa. Privacy for each side is thus maintained.
