Coffee Production Plant
by Giorgi Khmaladze Architects

Shortlisted for business building of the year at Dezeen Awards 2020, 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 the impact of a large-building footprint visible from the planes taking off and landing at the airport close to the site.

Architect: Giorgi Khmaladze Architects
Project: Coffee Production Plant
