Kenedy County Safety Rest Area
Kenedy County, Texas
The design seeks to enhance the travelers' experience by artfully highlighting the heritage and culture of South Texas. The buildings' vaulted bent pipe trusses support planked wood roof decks, recalling ranch gates made from salvaged oilfield pipes, and the spreading branches of the oak mot and the undulating grapevines that draped the site. The design also incorporates brands of the area’s ranches that provide land for the construction of the highway.
