Power For The Future
Each function the right place: decentralized, restructured and future orientated.


Existing building
The tasks of the petrol station will be outsourced from the existing building. This generates multifunctional space that can be used for versatile social activities, info-spots, car-sharing etc, in short: urban life.
The image of ”total” will be upgraded by the element “culture”.
“total” boosts the acceptance and the usage of the new E-mobility.
A revegetated area, a new outside atmosphere will embed the petrol station into urban life.

New petrol station
The petrol station is the architectural translation of the distinctive “total” logo.
It is a wooden construction that could also be covered with plants and grass as a vertical garden.
The roof evolves from the building construction or could be an independent element.
Due to the urban layout context the dimensions are kept rather small – thus giving space to the sculpture and to the created new functions for the district.

Ready for new technologies
In future electric power will play an important role. For this long time parking spots will be offered. The round shape of the petrol station makes it possible to park and recharge without interference.
