Dudok Esso Petrol Station
In 1953 the architect Willem Marinus Dudok (1884-1974)designed this standard for ESSO gas station. The buildings were a familiar sight along the highwayin the Netherlands. Also at the junction of the A2 in Vinkeveen. This station had to disappear in 1994, when the highway was widened at that spot.
About this creation
Blizzard

The former Autotron Rosmalen got wind of the plans and after consultation with the Agency and Monuments ESSO could concrete building in early 1995 to the car museum be moved. That was not without problems. The expedition arrived in a snowstorm and the trailer that the building was transported along the highway the night stand. Slightly less than ten years, the ESSO station in Rosmalen to visit, in 2004 it was placed on to Raamsdonksveer, where the National Automobile Museum / Collection Louwman the collection of the Autotron has taken over.


Elegant

The design of Dudok was simple and brilliant simultaneously. According to the mission he received from ESSO Netherlands, the station had functional and inexpensive to produce. It was just after World War II and raw materials were scarce. At the same time grew the road network and pumping stations had to be placed anywhere. The architect succeeded with these conditions still an elegant building design. He gave it a v-shaped roof on both sides if a canopy jutted: Below the pumps were prepared. Through the use of glass and steel station was illuminated at night visible. The ESSO colors red and white accentuated the forms in a subtle way.


Simplicity

In the building are the hallmarks of an architect Dudok clearly reflected. He disliked unnecessary embellishments. Dudok designed in the tradition of H. P. Berlage and processed ideas of contemporary movements like De Stijl and the New Objectivity in its buildings. Simplicity and function were paramount. 112 Esso stations were to design Dudok placed along the Dutch highways. There were also two extended versions of the places where a larger station was needed: This was an adaptation of Dudok's design by one of his employees.

Man why can't we have gas stations like this in America, they are so cool! We did in the 50's, but now they are plain and boring, just like modern cars, no fins at all! :P Great replica of the station, looks nice with all your trucks out front.

Man, can't tell the difference from the real pics. I love to see the LDD screenshots set up like a scene. What I like about LDD too is the fact that the screenshots are PNG's, so they can be added to real backgrounds too without having to green screen or mask. Really nice stuff you have here, looking forward to more, Chris

Quoting Paul Beach Nice write up and build. I believe that industrial history is VERY important no matter where you are.
Hi Paul, thanks for your comment. The text is not my own, its writen by R. Visser(for whoever that may be). Still need to translate it correctly.
