The project will be consolidated in 12 climate specific designs (3 PitStop sizes by 4 climate zones) and 6 specific designs for special sites. All the projects will have a similar approach, with two main areas for scenery, at the entrance and exit of the ramps, and one programmatic zone hosting open air rest areas in the center part of the sites. The vegetation, the scenery and rest areas will be adapted to the various PitStop dimensions and to the climate zones. The landscape size of the PitStop projects is considered large enough to create small biodiversity islands, while not being part of “nature”. Therefore, the landscape project will be highly innovative, integrating an ecological approach with road related functions.
