Rabeya Rahman

Student at Holmesglen TAFE

Winner: Best Response to a Design Brief by a Student

TAFE students were given a project brief to provide the highest quality electric refuelling facilities with ancillary amenities that encourage its retail customers to remain on-site while their vehicles are being re-charged.

Rabeya’s concept GREEnergy is an innovative and well-considered response to the design brief, integrating the essence of nature into both its form and function. Her attention to detail was evident in both her written statement and visual presentation. Products were well researched and cleverly applied, allowing the design to maintain its unique appearance. The charging station’s open, organic and lightweight appearance, alongside the integration of wind turbine towers, distinguished Rabeya’s work from the remaining projects. The Judges wish to commend her on the clear, concise and thorough presentation.
