The Berlin based architectural practice Jürgen Mayer H. realised this new airport building in the city of Mestia in Georgia. The small city, located 1500 m above sea level in the Caucasus Mountains, is part of the UNESCO world culture heritage for its beautiful medieval town with its stone defensive towers. The new built airport is part of Georgia’s ambitious plans to establish tourism in this region. The building was designed and constructed within only 3 months.
