Fuel station & McDonald’s by Giorgi Khmaladze, Batumi – Georgia

October 2nd, 2013 by retail design blog

In a rapidly developing city along the Black Sea, local architect Giorgi Khmaladze has designed a glazed, faceted form, complete with an interior garden. The elegantly shaped skin cantilevers over a surprisingly ordinary urban necessity and contains a hallmark institution of western consumer culture-a fuel station and McDonald’s respectively.

The building opens to the street with an opaque, tiled underbelly that shelters the fuel stations, while a faceted semi-circular circulation space is bordered by an indoor garden. The greenery fans out like a stadium, providing lush visual respite for the McDonald’s patrons inside the layered hallway. The architecture is a testament to the ability of the built form to elevate rather ubiquitous urban programming.
