Why a petrol station ? This project started in Morocco were I spend half a year. I discovered there a new way of using petrol station. This was not only a place to take gas but a good way to meet people, eat and spend time. From this point I decided to see how such an example could be used in Europe.
Battery-driven vehicle are the future and their loading is not the same as gasoline cars. I decided to adapt the gas station to these new cars.


In general, people spend less than two minutes at a petrol station. With battery-driven vehicle it is much longer to charge a vehicle. I wanted to combine this time with another important element: crafts. Currently, in France, many crafts are endangered. In order to give a solution I thought that these electric station should be a way to communicate about crafts from a region. The station would be a place with restaurants which would offer few specialities directly produced in the surrounding. People would spend time there and contribute to local development.


I created a smartphone app that would be for multiple uses. Products sold at the restaurant can also be purchased via this app. Indeed more than a service given at the station, people could also come there to buy some local products. It would increase the sales and be a good possibility to bring life in some place where markets and shops slowly disappear.


The application creates a links between artisans and clients from a same region or city. The application doesn’t replace the artisan but comes as a plus in order to communicate about his products. Having the application provides a complete service and does not replace artisans but helps them.


The information needs to be clearly seen to facilitate the use of the application. The idea is to create a simple, efficient and accessible service. You have the possibility to buy online, see where are the « Essential station », access to your personnal account and check the loading of your car. 


The « Essential station » provides fresh products and restaurants to communicate about the special know-how of a region. It is possible to buy directly at the station but also through the app.
