Giorgi Khmaladze Architects has designed a coffee production plant with offices and a cafe in Georgia.
All programmes have been arranged in a continuous unobstructed space, with glass partitions as boundaries in between.
From the highway, the building is a homogeneous concrete folded volume with no visible openings; on the back side it opens up towards the pine forest.
From above, it blends into its surroundings by a vast green roof, where occasional openings in forms of atriums, terraces and skylights bring natural light indoors. This reduces an impact of a large building footprint visible from the planes taking off and landing at the airport close to the site.
