Futuristic design for McDonald's to open in Georgia
Designing a fuel station & fast food outlet may not seem to be the most thrilling, but for Georgian architect Giorgi Khmaladze, his design put the Eurasian town of Batumi on the map. He is currently in the final construction phase of building a new fuel station & McDonald’s premises in the seaside city of Batumi.

Tearing away from the conventional model used for most McDonald’s outlets worldwide, Giorgi Khmaladze has made a futuristic design in an almost massive wave-like structure. This unique design ensures that the fuel station is kept completely separate to the fast food space. Part of this structure dramatically overhangs over the station, providing cover to motorists while also ensuring that the facility stays out of sight to the overhead restaurant. However, fuel station patrons can also easily gain access to the indoor restaurant through an adjoining entrance.

The McDonalds outlet includes a separate ground floor entrance located at the opposite end of the building & overlooking the surrounding ponds which wrap around the location. The kitchen & service facilities are all located in the central ground section which has side staircases leading to the dining areas. This part offers patrons a view across the landscape, with added seating situated parallel to an immense open-air garden.  A 600 square meter elevated garden on roof top, brings back the natural environment which was wasted by the building footprint.

The Fuel Station & McDonalds building is further characterized by its glass exterior comprise of a series of glass panels which reflect the above skies & surrounding environment. The whole curtain wall is covered with low E coated glass panels. In addition, there is a ceramic frit pattern on glazing which is custom designed in such a way that it will transmit less sunlight to the dining spaces when the sun rises to higher altitudes during warm months.
