Roadside Reststop Akkarvikodden lies along tourist route, north of the Arctic Circle in Norway. Built by Manthey Kula, to replace the previous rest stop that was ripped from its foundation by intense winds blowing in from the Atlantic Ocean. Using steel plates reinforced with steel flanges the interior walls are covered by glass to prevent rust from rubbing onto the users clothing. The foundation and the two walls that supports the stainless steel sanitary equipment are cast concrete. Glass panes are 12 and 20mm thick. Doors are built in 5 mm stainless steel plates. Walls and roof are made of 10mm corteen steel. In the smallest rest room one glass panel is mounted in the ceiling. In this panel one can see the reflection of the horizon.
