Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville, Pennsylvania

Waterless Restroom at Memorial Park

The Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville, Pennsylvania needed a special type of restroom building to be installed at the park. The Memorial includes striking design features such as black slate walkways with slanting walls, a polished white granite memorial wall, wild flowers, and sugar maples. The two restroom buildings needed to blend with these elements of the Memorial while remaining understated. A five room waterless restroom building and a separate single-user restroom were designed with cedar slat siding treated with a semitransparent gray stain. Each building also included a timber post covered porch and gray metal roofing. The final product is two restroom buildings that are both beautiful and modest.
