The 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. With 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 sink back 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.

TEAM PROFILE:

This practise of architecture is named after its founder Duilio Damilano who moved from Polytechnic of Turin to Milan, in order to follow a work- shop by Daniel Libeskind, where he’s developed his concept of architectural research directed towards the concreteness of space.

His passion for volumes, instead, comes from a family of sculptors. His father and his brother have, in fact, passed on to him an interest for the plastic and material aspect of every sculpture or architecture. Duilio Damilano says that he’s always been  attracted by architectures since childhood.

His design path begins from the study of the light and I how this affects and moulds the shapes.
“It is an instinctive vocation – says Duilio Damilano – a feeling that starts from deep inside and only at a later time is conveyed inside the channels of rationality. Certainly is something that’s always been part of my approach to architecture and which goes into my entire project. I mean the kind of lighting that goes beyond the physical aspect of the luminous element  to become an integral part of the architectural design. A project can’t peter out with the daylight”.

After graduating in 1998 he began his professional career as associate and in 1990 he opened the Damilano Studio. Over the years his work has developed, through collaborations with artists and deigners, into new architectural paths. Major areas of interest of Damilano Studio are the design of residential buildings, offices and commercial and receptive structures, both in Italy and abroad.
