Fabricator NCA Container- und Anlagenbau GmbH, St. Paul (Austria) Architect and Constructor ASFINAG Baumanagement GmbH, Vienna (Austria) Selection criteria
Application description Hallmarked by its luminous color and an uncluttered, modern design, the Laßnitzhöhe rest area is an example of ASFiNAG’s new rest stop design concept, which is to be applied throughout Austria by 2020. The fresh, luminous color and gleaming, reflective surface of the PLEXIGLAS® Mineral façade lend the modular structure its brilliant, unmistakable presence. The building’s striking color and highly reflective surface produce their full effect during the evening and nighttime, when they turn the structure into a prominent feature along the side of the freeway. Because they have so few joints, its floor-toceiling PLEXIGLAS® Mineral walls look as if they had been cast from a single mold—especially in combination with the glass-like band of lighting along the top. Underscoring that impression are the closed joints of the corners, which create seamless corner units. Like the overall façade itself, these units are bonded to the support frame.
