In the 1900s, in the city of Kutaisi, Mariam Davitashvili-Chubinishvili built a modernist-style house, often called the "Chinese house" by locals. The name makes sense when you look at the roofing which resembles the Buddhist pagoda shrines in China.
The building stands out for its asymmetric composition, exotic décor, and stylistic unity, all of which are characteristics of the modernist style.
Standing at a road junction, this foreign-looking house can be admired in its entirety from both sides. The main entrance opens from the side and the transverse façade, facing a central street, is decorated with arched windows and two wide terraces with stone columns.
Currently, the building is still a residential house.
