Preferences for Bike Repair Stands

I am working on designing a bike repair shop and bike locker area. I am curious to get feedback from bike-fanatics.

A few questions I have are:

-Would you utilize a bike repair station that was located inside of a bike area containing lockers?
-Would you be able to lift the bike up onto the platform, or would a hydraulic lift feature be helpful?
-What style of bike repair station is most appealing to you?

I’ve attached a file with some photographs of different types of repair stands. If you could choose a certain style, what would your pick be?

Thank you so much in advance for your help!!

If this is for the public to use, I believe the simpler it is the better. Any moving parts and it's bound to be broken. I pick A, but C and D are close.

Most people can lift their bike up onto a repair stand. The power lift would only be necessary for a busy business... and even that might be questionable. Cargo bikes?

I agree those public stands would be nice for commuters.

If you have an enclosed, locked area, you might consider one of the Park Professional stands.
Deluxe Single Arm Repair Stand | Park Tool

Although that might be overkill. The home version? A few tools would be nice, but they could either be tied down or checked in and out.
