Outhouse Bathroom Set | Britain offers quite a bit to resolve for when it comes to state housing. I had a buddy that lived on a council estate that was clearly made to remind the inhabitants of the station in life. The buildings were pre-war dark bricked edifices with narrow stair wells and dark corners. The waist-high walls in the wind-swept corridors were brick and punctuated every few meters having a small opening covered in iron bars. Every time I visited this friend I would leave feeling quite depressed and breathed a sigh of relief when I returned to my humble but well lit and open home a couple of miles away.
So imagine my surprise when on visiting Bolzano – a small alpine town in Italy, I discovered that their state housing looked much more an exclusive block which you may find in the greater parts of London.
The buildings had light coloured exteriors and huge balconies, covered in window baskets and so the tenants could fill them with colour. And this they did with gusto. They were lovely and head to reveal that basic things must not be unattractive knowning that when we invested more time in good design we are able to lift the spirits of those less fortunate than ourselves.
I noticed exactly the same thing with another latin proponent of excellent design. This time it absolutely was a Spanish Bathroom manufacturer called Roca, who’s basic 4 Piece Bathroom set known as the Roca Polo signifies that basic doesn’t have to mean unattractive, or lacking quality. The simple toilet and basin are already made to look really good in basically any environment but haven’t been over engineered, so they’re still eminently affordable.

So there it’s. Manufacturers and architects be aware. Good design makes people happy. End of rant.
