The Electric Fuelling Station of the Future
HONOURABLE MENTION: E-Cone
Like the seeds of a cone, a circular glulam canopy system creates a loop for passengers to enter and exit. Around the station, a maze of narrow paths inspired by the maple leaf branch out so visitors can stretch their legs.
Each angle of the upper rooftop courtyard offers a different viewpoint, while the inner courtyard below is ringed with a coffee shop, a market and lounges to chill and relax.
E-cone is built for the community of EV drivers to interact, whether in the central courtyard or on the rooftop lookout points.
Cars tucked under the timber structure, which has a green upper park with walkable grid solar panels.
The inner courtyard provides a safe space for children to run and play.
The upper court is a great spot for souvenir selfies or to meditate in the summer breeze.
As night falls, the glassed-in facilities glow, welcoming travellers to take a break from the road.
