Best International Design (Single Store)*
Winner: Gas Station Santa Luzia, Brusque, Santa Catarina, Brazil
Designer: Gabriela Cervi Architecture
Located in a traditional Brazilian neighborhood in the city of Brusque, Gas Station Santa Luzia Manager Gustavo Dalcegio sought to better serve the area’s customer base of 25- to 45-year-old consumers. To accomplish this, he enlisted designer Gabriela Cervi, an architect with more than 10 years of experience in gas stations and convenience stores.
With her guidance, Gas Station Santa Luzia underwent a substantial renovation to enlarge the store and add tables, making it more welcoming.
By using black tones and wood, Cervi gave the store an overall contemporary feel. To cater to the customer base, high-quality and free internet service was added as a new amenity.
The results since the renovation have exceeded everyone’s expectations, according to Cervi, who reported that sales tripled the month following the reopening.
