a project by j. MAYER h.
sarpi, georgia, completed 2011
Drivers crossing the coastal border between Turkey and Georgia will now pass below a knobbly observation tower by Berlin architect J. Mayer H. The bumpy tower, which sits atop the Sarpi Border Checkpoint building, houses a series of elevated terraces within its folds.

The curved two-storey building beneath the tower integrates customs facilities with a café, staff room and conference rooms. This year architect J. Mayer H. also completed a controversial timber canopy across a public square in Spain – see readers' comments on the project here and see more projects by the architect here.

From the Architects:
November 2011 marks the completion of Sarpi Border Checkpoint. Designed by J. MAYER H. architects the customs checkpoint is situated at the Georgian border to Turkey, at the shore of the Black Sea. With its cantilevering terraces, the tower is used as a viewing platform, with multiple levels overlooking the water and the steep part of the coastline.

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, representing the progressive upsurge of the country.
