    It is by law that toilet w/o window opening to the outside will near a toilet exhaust fan. It is usually turn on with the lights in the toilet.

    the 1st project i saw to have no toilet window is Harbourlights opposite vivocity. This is for the common toilet. There is an extractor to suck it out to the yard area. not too bad. never felt stuffy.

    Very common in Australia condos.

    But probably weather is damn cold half of the year.. so people do not want the toilet anywhere near the windows when they are Stark naked..

    I lived in one for a year but never smell since the extractor will take it out (centralised system for the whole building). But Summer time... if you do not have teh aircon on.. you will be sweating like pigs when you take a poo inside an enclosed cubicle .

    Then it look ok, except maybe higher elec bill.
    But exhaust does not provide ventilation, may be stuffy...

    Unless the bathroom is air tight, when the foul/damp air is being extracted fresh air should flow in through the gaps of the door.

    Yah, I prefer toilets with windows, best if the sun can shine into it. Will reduce dampness and stop growth of moulds and bacteria.

    depends too...not all MM are like that.

    i just checked out this new condo called Beacon Heights off Boon Keng. on second look again on the 667sqft 1+1, their toilet and the study room are windowles. for this size, they should have ample of way to create windows, i must say that it is a poor design!!
