Straight River Rest Area

Wausau Tile is proud to have contributed to Snow Kreilich Architect’s Straight River Rest Area for the Minnesota Department of Transportation, which received one of AIA Minnesota’s 2017 Honor Awards. Located between the fields of southern Minnesota and the 1-35 corridor, the Straight River Rest area in Owatonna, Minnesota lets visitors inhabit an elevated terrace, offering panoramic views and reflections of the wooded river valley beyond. Wausau Tile’s site furnishings help highlight the duality of the modernized rest area and the surrounding natural forest, creating a refuge for travelers.
