Hae-woo-so is the Korean word for the traditional Korean toilet. The inspiration behind the garden is that for centuries the Korean people believed that going to the toilet was a cathartic experience and considered it to be highly spiritual.
The wild flowers and vintage look of the toilet building are key elements of this predominantly green-toned garden. The pathway to the toilet from the garden’s entrance is also a significant feature; the process of emptying one’s mind takes place on the walk through the centre of the peaceful garden, enjoying the beauty of nature.
