Malieveld, Den Haag
Location: Malieveld, Den Haag
This petrol station is located near the former Esso head quarters at the end of the Hague urban motorway the "Utrechtse Baan".
Brand Oil Ermelo
An example of realising a more sophisticated design by simple means. Around the 100 cm high edges of a standard canopy, grids are attached on cantilevering steel consoles. All construction parts in simple, gray steel. The slight red grid sides, combined with the free standing roof letters, pay enough attention to the brand's name.
This student-managed selling-point is situated at the Amsterdam-IJburg accessroad, below the A9 motorway-exit. IJburg is the most recent extention of Amsterdam, to be built as an archipelago. There is a huge, rounded roof over the forecourt, seeming to be cantilevered from the backside with it's open frontside towards the traffic crossing from where the customers come. Customers are protected by the roof and almost closed backside, but they still have a nice view onto what's at the station's backside.
"Het Rondeel", Houten Netherlands
Location: "Het Rondeel", Houten Netherlands
This filling station at the Houten entrance road is equipped with high perforated metal screens,
giving shelter to the customer. Together with the large slanted canopy covering both forecourt and shopbuilding.
Platvoet Enschede, Netherlands
Location: Enschede, Netherlands
Because of the existing local building regulations, accepting the existing coal storage
shed, but no filling station, the principal designed his selling point in the coal shed's framework. Over the pump court has been
developped a canopy, shaped in the appearance and dimensions of the former shed, constructed out of the old timber and steelwork.
Motorway A30 Barneveld, Netherlands
Location: Motorway A30 Barneveld Netherlands
The location was originally meant for a real petrol station.
Gulf stations N234 Bilthoven
Location: N234 Bilthoven Netherlands
Cause of the strong design regulations by the Utrecht province esthetics comittee, this twin station was designed totally different from the usual Gulf design practice.
Vissers Venlo Netherlands
Location: Near motorway A73 Horst Netherlands
This filling station was erected on an industrial lot near the A73 motorway. It is possessed by an independant company, Vissers Oliehandel. I got the info from Rogier Vissers from Vissers en Vissers BV, construction engineers.
About this station I'm not sure whether it really exists, or it's the artist's own interpretation. Michel Drenthe told me by email that the station was near Lochem, and is demolished now.
Gasstation industrial area Made Netherlands
Location: Near motorway A59 Made Netherlands
About this filling station I don't have any info. If you could tell me more, I'll be grateful.
