I have seen you dig up some weird things Ray but this has to be the weirdest. I think someone forgot the bowls unless the water is supposed to go backward and into a drain(it will never work). I think if I saw that bathroom I would turn around and walk right out the door. I think whoever designed and built this was drinking that weird Kool Aid with some bad additives.

Sure it will Richard. I remember the old Atlanta Stadium. The men's bathroom consisted of a trough that extended around 3 walls with a cascade of water running down the wall. No individual urinals. It could accommodate as many that wanted to stand shoulder to shoulder. No waiting. This slanted solid surface and slit drain set up is very clever.

Larry, I'm not sure if you're serious or not! This can't be right.

When I see things like this I wonder what goes through the installers head. I've got a job, just do it weather it's right or wrong or should I say something? Or does he say screw the man, this it what he wants. And these are professionals?

It seams like a bad way to do it, but I suspect the sink holes have not been cut yet. Makes for a good picture though!

I think it's slanted to the rear as already noted. Interesting. I've seen the waterfall type urinals Larry mentioned, can't remember where.

And for those who've never been in the Far East, here's what the well-appointed restroom looks like:

Ha Ha, so do I.

It's right. It's basically a "flat" sink. There's no need for any bowls or to hold water.

As far as sanitation, cleaning the flat surface is no different than cleaning a bowl, probably easier.

I like it.

Back in my Navy days was in the Tiger Balm Gardens in Singapore. The restrooms were elevated a foot or so off the ground. Just round holes in the floor with metal pans slid under from outside that were emptied by attendants. In the Philippines I saw "urinals" in bars that were nothing more than shallow troughs formed in the concrete floor that went through the wall into a dirt ditch outside that probably emptied into the roadside ditch.

Back to the original picture. I can't see what keeps the water from splashing on you unless it is a very weak stream from the faucet.

Obviously it is not a level countertop, it definitely slopes backward toward the drain which is the void at the back of the counter. If the water goes through an aerator, it will not splash. The faucets are also set pretty far back.

I lived out on town in Olongapo, Philippines. Depending on the neighborhood, the plumbing worked OK. I lived in East Bajac Bajac and it was more of a concern rainwater would flood your living room, it was guaranteed.

On a side note, I married the wife in Olongapo in 1985 and she is still here, telling me to get off the computer.

Didn't realize I was surrounded by sailors; thought Vic was the only one I had to worry about.

Pretty clever design, IMO and maybe discourages transients from bathing in the sinks since there are none.

Nice place to stretch out for nap, though.
