Hong Kong – ENOC Future Station designed by Global Design Principal Ignacio Gomez wins Silver Award under Best Transportation at A&D Awards 2021.

ENOC Future Station is a Petrol Station of the Future located at the Dubai Expo 2020 Site. With sustainability as its primary goal, the project employs principles from bio-mimicry, designing and producing materials that are modelled on biological entities. The service station received the LEED platinum certification – world’s first station to receive such honour –validating its performance on metrics such as energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions, etc.

As a true pioneer in fuel retail, it is also the first station in the region to incorporate an on-grid wind turbine for power generation and carbon fibre in the construction of its canopy. An approach which traffics into the past as well as the future, the design nods at nature as well as local historical context, by taking the Ghaf Tree as the Canopy’s inspiration. As an endemic species, the Ghaf is a symbol of sustainability, linking the past to the present and providing a perfect basis for design of an innovative, futuristic and sustainable petrol station.
