Steel Service Station Roofs with Plastic Membranes
Petrol stations today are miniature service centres. They incorporate not only a car wash, but sales facilities for drinks, bread and pastries, and possibly an Internet cafe. In this way, they help to define the local urban planning structure or the rural context. In their clear, attractive design and successful integration into their environment, the service stations in Munich and the surrounding area which are cited in the article create a typologically convincing image and reveal a joy in details. Their unified architectural language lends them a character of their own that evokes a sense of recognition and thus creates a brand identity.
