Both of the piers are important to the East Coast’s seaside history, with Clacton Pier opening to the public in 1871 and Felixstowe in 1905.
In their early years, piers were used as landing platforms for ships and steamers and would only expect to be used by a few visitors. However, as the popularity of the piers grew, so did the attractions on piers and the facilities required for these visitors.
Felixstowe and Clacton are amongst the oldest and most popular seaside resorts along the East Coast. Both piers constantly update and refresh their facilities to attract visitors from across the globe.
The growth of the pier’s amusements requires both an increase in size and a refurbishment of the facilities. It is important for the washrooms to be able to facilitate high levels of traffic and be weather tight.
The design of Felixstowe Pier’s facilities centred around a seaside/nautical theme to match the location of the washroom. This included the use of natural woods, grey and blue tiles, topped off nicely with porthole mirrors. This is a good example of how introducing small details into a design can create an eye-catching facility and a washroom that people will remember.
