Something one does not generally expect when considering the fast food chain McDonald’s, is good design. This new branch in Batumi, Georgia however, is more than just good. It’s great. I could probably keep adding positive descriptors for the next paragraph and it still would not cover just how surprising this beautiful, glass-clad, faceted structure, with its dramatic cantilevered awning and green roof, is.

Designed by Khmaladze Architects and completed in October 2012, the McDonalds has since become a local landmark. The massive cantilevered overhand is covered on top with an outdoor garden visible and accessible for outdoor dining from the upstairs dining area and acts as a shelter for the fuel station, also part of the design, which sits below.
