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. It’s really 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.
