National Aquatics Center (Water Cube)

Architect: PTW Architects, CSCEC International Design & Arup

Category: Entertainment venues

Installation date: 2003

Exceptionally modern and color-changing, Roca conceived the spaces of the National Aquatics Center as a golden opportunity to leave its mark in the unique architecture of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.

Thus, the bathroom spaces surrendered to the original shapes of the vitreous china collections such as Khroma and Hall as well as to the Oslo compact WCs or the Euret urinals. All of this without forgetting the commitment to energy efficiency by installing the Loft-E faucets, activated by a presence sensor. The perfect combination of design, resistance and efficiency was the key to face not only one of the world’s most important events, but also its celebration in one of the planet’s most populated countries. The selected collections and sanitary appliances provide the outstanding durability and hygiene of Roca’s vitreous china while the Loft-E basin faucets, only activated by the presence of a human being, avoid the unnecessary waste of water in a place destined to receive millions of visits.
