Photographing accessible washroom facilities in Leicester
Specialist disability washroom equipment
Photographing toilets and washroom facilities is always a tricky job. With bright reflective surfaces and limited space, it needs an approach that emphasises the space and the features without looking unreal or distorted.
We’ve photographed facilities at the new Leicester Haymarket Bus Station and Curve, and have included a few of the photos we supplied here.
Changing Places toilets are wheelchair accessible and offer a height-adjustable adult-sized changing bench, a celling track hoist, and space for carers. These specialist facilities are intended to provide better access and features than standard ‘disabled toilets’. Under current UK regulations (BS8300:2009, and ‘desirable’ under Building Regulations Approved Document M 2013), it is good practice for Changing Places toilets to be installed in any building to which members of the public have access.
Leicester Bus Station
Part of the £13.5 million regeneration of the main city bus station is the new Changing Places toilet, supplied and fitted by Clos-o-Mat.
The toilet is accessed directly from the main terminal area.
The location has completely level access.

And just because we’d love more clients to ask for black and white images a bit more often… (we don’t charge extra!)
Our standard resolution images like could easily be printed at 90cm square, and larger options are available.

The Changing Rooms facility compliments Curve’s 15 other standard disabled toilets throughout the building.
Curve was designed by Rafael Vinoly.
