From the architect. Whether it’s providing a break for refueling, or just to stretch the legs before continuing the journey, the design of a service is strongly tied to the idea of travel.

With the same continuity, the service station is separated from the asphalt like a ribbon of road wrapping around itself, creating a temporary oasis to accommodate the traveller.

Site Plan
Site Plan

The architecture of a service station is usually conceived as a mere support function, thus influencing its shape. The architecture, static by definition, becomes closely linked to the concept of continuous flow that becomes the urban landscape.

Glass walls close the shell reinforced concrete, cast in special moulds. On the rear elevation, a red steel block is detached from the body and a wolf howling, illuminated at night, drawing attention to the restroom area.
