Tenerife, Spain

Cepsa, Service Station

Cespa opens its first service station in Tenerife presenting itself with the elegant choice of GammaStone Glass Air solution. The use of large ultra-light panels (surface tempered glass) with the red colour of the “traffic light” gives an innovative appearance and perfectly matches the ecological approach of this modern station project. This is the first gas station to have a smart building implementing a new construction model. Surprisingly, this building incorporates the most advanced technologies in terms of energy savings. Among these stands out the ventilated façade GammaStone Glass Air, composed of a tempered glass that causes a significant reduction in heat dispersion.

Although most of the panels are simple rectangular shapes, this project is strongly characterised by the realization of curved glass angles (with a radius of curvature of 450 mm). In addition, the choice to use the same material for the cladding of the access doors, made them melt completely in the façade, improving the continuity of the material between the various surfaces. The result is a visual effect of absolute essentiality and linearity.
