From the architect. The project is situated in the heart of the old town of Mestia, next to the newly built city-hall. Its towerlike shape pays homage to the medieval stone towers which are traditional to Mestia’s mountainside region. The facade is comprised of prefabricated textured concrete and large openings which offer a maximum of transparency.

I really like the contrast to the surroundings. The organic architecture is amazing.

I have to ask why is this better than some more traditional alternative.
It's not very original too.

At first i thought, that this is some 3D visualization. I'm surprised, that this project has been constructed in Georgia (with all due respect ;)) and not e.g. in Switzerland.
