Roca Toilet Integrates Sink, Grey Water Cistern
For LifeEdited, Graham describes his needs in the bathroom:
The apartment needs to have a toilet, a sink, a shower, and perhaps a steam room. The setup should look great, be space efficient, conserve water and energy, and have low embodied energy. Must have audio privacy.
We present other ideas to inspire.
TreeHugger has shown a couple of toilets with sinks built into their tanks, which make you reach over the bowl to get at the sink. There have also been gray water collection tanks that go under the sink. But this is the first time I have seen an elegant, properly integrated sink and gray water system integrated so elegantly with a toilet.
Inhabitat spotted it in London, and writes:
Its sleek design houses a nifty self-contained greywater system that is capable of reducing water use by up to 25% compared to a standard 6/3-litre dual flush toilet....The system uses Roca's "water-reuse technology" and also features an automatic cleaning system that avoids flushing bacteria into the unit's built-in cistern, cutting down on unpleasant odors.
It must be brand new, as I cannot find any information on it at the manufacturer's website- ROCA
