What is the future of the humble highway fuel stop in an age of electric vehicles and an increasing appetite for freshly-prepared local foods? We envision a more sustainable alternative, with high-efficiency electric charging as well as conventional fuels, with a local restaurant onsite as well as a fast food option.

We specify cross-laminated timber to reduce embodied carbon, large windows and screening to improve daylighting without heat gain, and night lighting that doesn’t trespass across site boundaries. The design incorporates spaces for drivers to wait, recharge, shower, and dine as well as an outdoor area for pets.

The new designs will be rolled out across the region in 2024, beginning in Carriere, Mississippi.
