city camouflageA Dutch designer, Roeland Otten, has decided that power substations and public toilets are too unsightly and so has given them a make-over.

The project has taken him to Rotterdam and Amsterdam, where he has used different methods to make the buildings blend in to the urban landscape. 

‘City Camouflage’ employs mosaic tiles, paint and photographic prints affixed to the outside of these small buildings to make them less visually offensive.

A variety of creative solutions has either helped them to blend in or provided the public with an insight into what they are actually for.
