Architecture

Activating Delayment

“ Rain & wind

Find peace in the
Chaos by the environment

As water which amounts from the air
A will of its own

The sucking of nature
Interaction of energy “

We live in a period, which will be characterized by an economy of acceleration: time is money! More and more cars run on ‘sustainable’ produced energy instead of fossil fuels.
That’s good for the environment but it will also affect the design of our living patterns and spatial layout of our surroundings. The gas station is changing gradually from a stop into a residence.

There are several different heights in the country. To each his own pace. The highway, speed, rush and no time to lose. The middle of the dike, a no man’s land. And on top of the dike, a special view. A place to unwind. To recharge yourself and get away from the daily grind.

The whole design is applied to the user’s choice. Grand gestures by thick walls, which translate the various elements. Upon arrival you will have a choice to quickly refuel again go through. Another option is to drive to the charging point for the car and you can charge yourself for your onward travel or work in peace. In total there are three choices. That third option will be, to be one with nature with a breathtaking view. In the middle of all these elements they will be linked together by an interplay of stairs that connect everything.
