The final concept art for Washit - a combined shower and washing machine - shows both domestic and public use
In domestic use Washit would allow you to load your laundry from the outside and shower inside
In public use Washit would allow you to load your clothes from the inside and shower at the same time

Water is a precious resource and in places like Australia and the U.K., the onset of summer coincides with restrictions on water use – hosepipes for watering gardens are banned, and showers are recommended over baths. But even taking a shower uses a fair amount of water, which all ends up down the drain. The same goes for doing laundry. If only there was a way to combine the two into one unified unit. There is, or at least there could be in the future. Four university students in Turkey have collectively designed Washit, a concept shower and washing machine combo that's capable of cleaning you and your clothes simultaneously.
