I visited Longwood Gardens down in Pennsylvania late last week, and one of the things I was most excited to see was, believe it or not, their new public bathrooms. When I was there late last summer they were just completing them, and even then, during a sneak peak when I had to duck under scaffolding wearing a hard hat, they were spectacular. They’re even better now! This underground corridor is attached to one of the rear corners of the conservatory, and it’s a huge living wall under a glass roof, with individual bathrooms evenly spaced along each side. Inside each bathroom is a domed ceiling topped with a small, round skylight that pokes out of the grass above. It’s truly a spectacular destination, even if you don’t feel the urge to pee… Forgive the lousy shots of the bathroom interiors. They don’t do these relaxing rooms justice.
