Hyphae Design Laboratory together with The North of Market/Tenderloin Community Benefit District (NOMTL-CBD) has embarked on a campaign to improve access to public bathrooms. The ecological toilet planned for 2014 will have features such as composting, graywater reuse for the passive irrigation of planted trellis screens, urine nutrient cycling for plant health, and solar panels for lighting and power.

After conducting an extensive six-month community research process, Hyphae Design Laboratory developed a 90-page Public Toilet Masterplan that includes a comprehensive, neighborhood-wide toilet survey conducted by a local resident, input from hundreds of community members, three preferred toilet locations, and schematic design guidelines that meet ADA compliance (http://issuu.com/hyphaedesignlab). The Public Toilet Project is funded in part by a Community Challenge Grant and a Community Development Block Grant.
