Service area – a reinforced – concrete structure featuring three funnel – shaped columns that support a melded trio of curvy horizontal discs. Overhead lighting – built into the surface where columns meet discs and lining their undulating edges.

The larch façade of the cubic kiosk boots the station’s streamlined appearance. Timber beams inside the shop generate a sense of coherence between interior and exterior.

    Beautiful, shame they didn’t use the funnels for rain harvesting. Feed their Car Wash!

    Definitely inspired by FLW’s water lily columns in the Johnson Wax building. Love it.
