The World’s Most Beautiful Public Restroom Sits Along the Norwegian Highway

Stunning views, when nature calls.

Nestled in the Ureddplassen (or Uredd Rest Area) along the Norwegian Scenic Route Helgelandskysten is this exquisite and minimalistic wave-shaped public bathroom constructed out of frosted glass and concrete.

It was conceptualized and built by Oslo-based designers Haugen/Zohar Architects, hired by the National Tourist Routes, in an effort to renovate the Uredd Rest Area which is well-known among locals and frequent travelers for its great view of the Northern Lights during autumn to winter and the Midnight Sun during summer. It also holds a monument that pays tribute to the passengers of “Uredd” submarine that sunk during World War II.
