Design and production of the first visitor centre of Better Place in Europe. The permanent exhibition of over 1000 m2 conveys the core values of Better Place: namely that innovation and sustainability can go hand in hand and that zero-emission vehicles powered by electricity from renewable sources is the best way forward.

The main concept of the visitor centre is the use of green technology shaped by green interior architecture. The exhibition is a spectacular and engaging experience that aims to entertain and surprise rather than just inform its audience. The space was designed to create an emotive trip that invites visitors to explore, play and learn.

The installation uses innovative and sophisticated green technology and lighting to illustrate the captivating phenomenon of transforming electricity from renewable sources into transportation. As a narrative element, interactive installations are used to unveil information related to energy, environment, economics and electric cars, all shaped in a relaxing and inspiring environment.

A cylindrical cinema for up to 20 people is one of the main features of the space. The cinema is operated by a wire system which hoist the cylindrical wall up and down.

Interactive quizzes to test the guests’ knowledge after touring the visitor centre, touch screens and models illustrating the components of the Better Place infrastructure are all part of the exhibition.
