Project DescriptionFrom ARCHITECT, November 2013
J. Mayer H. Architects in Georgia, by Ian Volner:
Mayer’s second pavilion in the seaside town of Batumi is currently under construction. Sited along the New Boulevard, a 2010 extension to the walkway that lines the city’s beachfront, the two-story structure will be used as an event venue when it is completed next year. The petal-shaped cantilevered concrete terraces that line the perimeter were designed to offer views out over the Black Sea and over the town itself, which has been seeing a huge rise in tourism (the number of annual visitors doubled between 2006 and 2010). Some aspects of the pavilion’s design, specifically on the beachfront façade, have been altered from Mayer’s design, but the pavilion will still incorporate party rooms (including a rooftop venue), restrooms, a kitchen, and storage.
