The Electric Fuelling Station of the Future


Sean Solowski | Toronto, Canada

Vehicle charge points wrap the perimeter of a central pavilion, creating a safe zone that minimizes overlap between pedestrian and vehicle movement. Dedicated barrier-free spaces, curb cuts and ramps provide a fully accessible facility for travellers of all abilities.

The timber canopy extends inward to a protected courtyard, forming a partially covered space sheltered from rain and snow. The overall shape draws inspiration from automotive design as well as biophilic concepts: Rounded and organic shapes echo natural elements, while embracing engineering-like precision.
