Burbucar: a Super Cool Car Wash Design and Concept

Ad

Tired of taking your car to that same old boring car wash around the corner? Well, great design can also be found in a car wash, at least at this one in Madrid. Burbucar, a project by Lina Toro, will certainly get your attention and make you want to take your car for a wash. Take a look.

Not only the place looks great but 80% of the water they use is recycled, which is great for the car wash business. I always like when someone creates a new concept for an old thing. Hope you guys like it too.

Burbucar: a Super Cool Car Wash Design and Concept

Burbucar is a carwash located at Costa Rica Street in Madrid. It is an established business, which uses clean and innovative processes and seeks to visualize its philosophy by means of a renewed image. The carwash occupies the ground floor of a 7-storey building, in a 70 m-long and 12 m- wide tube. It rests on a 10cm neoprene bedding, which absorbs vibrations of the machines at the car wash tunnel. 80% of the water used is recycled at a purifying room, through 6 specific tanks. In winter, humidity exceeds 80% and the apparent temperature is 0ÂșC. Running non-stop 12 hours a day from Monday to Saturday, an average of 80 cars are washed daily at Burbucar. The comission is made with a single condition: the running of the business will not be interrupted at any time. The project is executed in one month. Uninterrupted.
