Calder Woodburn Rest Area

There is a long and rich history of the service station as an urban, suburban and rural icon within Australian car culture. The familiar image of a large floating roof providing shelter go the services below is a strong memory for all that have taken a road trip.

The Rest Station marks a point on the journey, a place for pausing; a place for reflection and to strech ones legs. The roof serves as both shelter and sign in the landscape. It celebrates road culture and acts as a nodal point in a countinuing journey.
