Sherif Khimshiashvili St. 9 in Batumi

Sherif Khimshiashvili St. 9 in Batumi

During the 2010s, projects by the world-famous modern architects, Shin Takamatsu (the former commercial center on Sololaki Ridge), Michele De Lucchi (the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Bridge of Peace), and Massimiliano Fuksas (the Justice Hall, the Music Center, and the Art Gallery in Rike) were completed in Tbilisi. However, it is not famous foreign masters of the art who have brought Georgia to the world’s architectural stage, but rather a young Georgian architect whose building was constructed in 2013, and quickly won worldwide acclaim.

History of the Building

In 2013, a fuel station and a McDonald’s building with a pool and recreation area were constructed from Giorgi Khmaladze’s design at Sherif Khimshiashvili St. 9 in Batumi. The SOCAR company commissioned it and immediately caught the attention of international professionals.

The Architecture of the Building

The Batumi McDonald’s building was constructed with energy-efficient material that can withstand environmental conditions, such as fires, and stands out for its original roof and façades. The interior's planning and design speak to the architect's professionalism and refined taste.

This architectural masterpiece was positively evaluated by two authoritative organizations in 2014: ArchDaily awarded it “The Year’s Best building” and Architizer.com named it one of the best-designed buildings for a commercial establishment.
