#10 Gas Galanta
Location: Matúškovo, Slovakia
Architect: Atelier SAD
Atelier SAD's design of Gas Galanta echoes the likes of Britain's 1960s Mobil Petrol stations with its flying saucer-styled appearance. Located in Matuskovo in Slovakia, the gas station was completed in 2011.
Three large discs supported by a column each create a sheltered concrete canopy over the petrol pumps. Overhead lighting has also been incorporated into these funnel-like structures.
An accompanying store brings warmth to the compact area with its light wooden façade and timber beams carrying inside provide fluidity between the exterior and the interior.
