j. mayer h. architects: airport in mestia

berlin-based practice j. mayer h. architects has completed a new airport building in mestia, georgia. developed as a part of the highland town’s plans to spur its tourism industry, the project was constructed in a mere three months.

comprised of three distinct wings, the design is dynamically wrapped in a pattern of tinted glazing and solid white cladding. two branches curve upwards towards the sky, generating a variation in interior ceiling conditions. while relatively hidden from the outside, the structural ribs of the building create a rhythmic effect on the inside.
