Contest Brief

We are looking to design the car charging station of the future! with 20 cars.

we are looking for CAD designs and beautiful renders of a future electric car charging station,

We are using 40FT shipping containers to store our chargers, then we are putting charging posts on the outside of the shipping container to connect to the cars. there will be 5 cars per shipping container, we are looking for a CAD render of at least 4 shipping containers, with 20 cars.

We are looking for renders of the charging station, including scenery and background images

We are looking for open ideas, we want the shipping containers to look good!

- Low cost,
- please use realistic designs
- minimal use of plastic
- nice architecture designs, we can clad the outside of the container in wood
- no cheap RGB colours or neon lights
- nice simple and clean designs!
- we would want a roof but you have to accept Trucks & lorries
- the cost of a roof is expensive! Use the shipping containers as structural support??
- We have put ideas on colour and theme on Pinterest: [login to view URL]

    Hi there, you said that you will put charger posts on the outside of the shipping container to connect to the cars, then what will the inside space be used for? Thanks.

      hi, the inside will be used for all of the power modules - electrical conversion etc. one of the shipping containers can also be used as a cafe / relax area etc . but the rest will be full (dont worry about adding equipment in them)

    Hi, I didnt get the full idea. Is it like Audis "Gullwing"ETron charger station ?( batteries inside the container)
    Solar panels are also considered in roof section?

      solar panels can be used in the charging station design, but need to be realistic. Think of basically the Gas station of the future!
