The project area is located in the center of Zugdidi, near the Dadiani Palace. The building reflects the urban environment and, through its cross shape focuses on the four views (Dadiani Palace, Nicosian Palace, City, Skate Park) creating an urban dialogue between architecture and existing cultural context.
The proposed building form consists of open plan public spaces. Part of the reading room and mediatheque is located on a two-lane amphitheater and overlooks the palace park.
The building has two floors. The first level is dedicated to the hall, café and media center. The second floor is hanging on the console and has administration, exhibition space and a terrace. Overall planning ensures a permanent connection between these functions.
The architectural form and its placement on the landscape makes it possible for different types of public spaces to be arranged in the courtyard, for example: outdoor cafe, reading space, amphitheater and more.
