Single storey with deep substructure holding the conveniences; rectangular in plan with apsidal ends. International Style. The roof projects far beyond the walls to form a sheltered area around the front of the structure; near the centre 2 sections of the wall project to form a recess with a pair of entrances which now accommodate toilets adapted for disabled people; the roof steps out over this centre section. All openings are flat arched. The main entrances are located at opposite ends, just before the curving sections of wall, and open onto a curved stair of 2 stages which leads down to the conveniences themselves. The curved walls consist of a low parapet topped by a glass wall with glazing bars of steel. The windows themselves have projecting sills.
