ONE’ is a project that departs from the social debates revolving around the transgender community and their access to a basic need of public restrooms. The project acts as a gender-neutral public restroom and takes into consideration the urgent need of designing safe, sustainable, and inclusive restrooms for all genders, religions, races, and disabled. A public restroom is a public space that strongly differentiates between different gender groups. As a result of a neutral restroom, the fear of transgenders being looked at in a not so appropriate way gets completely eliminated making it a safe and inclusive public space for all.
