This project reflects on the culture of the road, the landscape and contemporary architecture.

There is a long and rich history of the service station within Australia. The familiar image of the large floating roof providing shelter to the amenities of the service provider is a strong memory for all who have undertaken a road trip. It performs a vital role in the rest and re-supply needs of the traveller. These places mark a point in a journey, a place for pausing, a place for reflection. The roof serves as both shelter and icon, signalling to the passer-by while serving the practical function of sheltering the amenities below. This project celebrates that imagery.
