Council Housing Built So As Not To Offend Muslims

Posted: Fri, 07 Oct 2005 17:17

A new block of flats has opened in Bristol with bathrooms that are specially designed not to offend Muslims. The toilets have been built so they do not face south east, which means tenants of the housing association-run flats are not facing Mecca when they use them. The 16 flats in Wilson Street, St Paul's, which have been built at a cost of £1.7 million, have a number of design features to make them user-friendly for Asian tenants.
