Müller Offenburg

Shell service station Nuremberg, Frankenstraße – make do and mend


As early as in the seventies, Müller Offenburg built by order of Shell two big canopies of the type Maya in Nuremberg and Munich.

The gigantic and significant constructions were executed as double-shell canopies and had internal gangways for maintenance purposes. After more than 40 years the old constructions were no longer up-to-date and thus the principal decided to build a new canopy while maintaining the buried tank technlology.

After intensive planning meetings with the principal and the architect, the resulting demanding supporting structure was successfully realized with a filigree and asymmetrical canopy.
