DESCRIPTION
 
Damilano Studio GazolineThe design of a service station is a strong reference to the idea of travel, short or long-distance routes interrupted only by a few stops and then back on the road.

A break for refueling, or just to stretch a bit 'legs before continuing his journey.

Damilano Studio GazolineWith the same continuity, the service station is separated from the asphalt like a ribbon of road with the engine and wrapping around itself, creating a temporary volume to accommodate the traveler.

The tape then riaffonda into the ground to continue to other destinations.

The architecture of the service station, as usually conceived as a mere support function, thus acquires a shape.

The architecture, static by definition, becomes closely linked to the concept of continuous flow that envelops and becomes the urban landscape without interruption.

The shell reinforced concrete, cast in special molds fluidized is closed by glass walls.

Are distributed within the office manager and a self-service, separate bathrooms from the block in central position. On the rear elevation red steel block is detached from the body and a wolf howling, illuminated at night, draws attention to the urgent needs.
