Space age checkpoint greets visitors to Georgia

Georgia border

German architect J. Mayer H. has completed a sculptural customs checkpoint at Georgia’s border to Turkey on the Black Sea coast.

With its cantilevering terraces, the tower is used as a viewing platform with multiple levels overlooking the sea.

In addition to the regular customs facilities, the structure also houses a cafeteria, staff rooms and a conference room.


The building welcomes visitors to Georgia and is said to represent the country’s progressive outlook.

The  architecture firm was behind Seville’s stunning Metropol Parasol, one of the world’s largest wooden structures.
