Site is located in the old part of Tbilisi, Capital of Georgia, near Aleksandrov park, which borders plot from North side. Main goal was to unite buildings with diverse functions into one complex. At initial part of our project development, as the first step, we outlined main task to solve: to achieve the logical solution and not just esthetically beautiful building. We considered character of Embassy in modern way, which means: to be on one hand representative, solid building and friendly, open to public on the other. Also this building must carry spirit of France, which we expressed in iron, old style construction, similar to Eifel style on ground floor and minimalistic contemporary forms.
