7. Group-1 Toilet Design | Devika Chopra Level-1 | Somya Agarwal Level-2 |Save The House-Lobding Pa,Leh
We were briefed to visit the old Leh town and col-
lect information about the vernacular toilet of la-
dakh,understand their Sewage system,observe
them,document in the form of text,sketchs and
photographs,interview people about the toilets they
have at home and the problems they face while
using the existing toilets .
1.Old toiles have a pit hole surrounded by mud.
2.A small window for ventilation.
3.A chamber in which all waste gets stored.
4. After 1 year they open the chamber door which
is covered by stones and the cleaners make that pit
Pipe for Biogas
The crux of this design was to have
storage tanks adjacent to the hole
in ground which could be connect-
ed via pipe,on pulling the opening
of the storage tank soil would flow
through the pipe and directly into
the pit chamber.
Before jumping to 1:1 scale prototype we planned to make a small mockup of the storage tank to work out and check its
mechanism and working.On making this mockup we found out several issues and could provide solutions and alternatives
to it before we started to work on the actual scale model.This helped us to avoid wastage of the material available on site
and even helped us while we were working on the actual scale model.
Final Prototype (Scale 1:1)
We had to make a working model of the design just demonstarte the working of the
design ,alterations could be done according to site.We poposed a curved metal
plate to be installed within the toilet seat which would help to sepaerate the solid
and the liquid wastes.
We learnt how to use grinder and sand paper to level ,saw, hammer and cutter.
