Even better then.  To get there you must enter the building!

The map symbol for the fountain should thus be the "working fountain 
inside building" symbol, rather than the "working fountain outside" symbol.

We're not sure about public vs. private here... the goal is a mobile 
application that lets you find the nearest place you can actually drink 
at, and many indoor sources will be insufficiently public.
