The Kumutoto Toilets by Studio Pacific Architecture are located in the Synergy Plaza in Wellington, New Zealand. Studio Pacific Architecture wanted to create iconic structures that used strange modern designs while being practical and visible.

This eye-catching bathroom consists of two long and curved structures that resemble elongated tentacle sea creatures. Each recognizable structure is comprised of one public bathroom that is made from concrete and red metal sheets. The project's name Kumutoto translates to ancient stream, and this water reference fits the surrounding maritime area.

Studio Pacific Architecture was founded in 1992, and it is a well-established architectural firm in Wellington, New Zealand. Studio Pacific has won many awards for its designs specializing in urban regeneration, housing, master planning, arts and modern workspace planning.
