A two yeard study on the theme of gas stations and their design led to the creation of a summary of much needed improvements on the subject. As a result a modern structure was created wich would service delivering bigger comfort not only the drivers but also other users in a more efficient, pleasant and evironmental friendly manner. Green areas which normally are requested in city plans as safety buffer zones and surround these buildings as grass surfaces would be placed on the roof top.This would be a location for social interactions and a place where you can relax when you wait for your electric car to be charged what still takes minimum 20 minutes in a station. It's generous areas would be at the same time used to harvest rain water which later would be distributed to the undergound level where it would be practically used in the car wash.
Additionally the entire scheme could be adapted to changing needs when electric cars would become more popular. In one week time the petroleum infrastructure could be replaced with an electric one, turning a gas-oriented facility into a charging station.
