In picture: Sarpi Border Checkpoint

This is the Sarpi Border Checkpoint, the customs checkpoint situated at the Georgian border to Turkey, at the shore of the Black Sea. The creative work of Berlin architect J Mayer H, it features cantilevering terraces – the tower is used as a viewing platform, with multiple levels overlooking the water and the steep part of the coastline.

In addition to the regular customs facilities, the structure also houses a cafeteria, staff rooms and a conference room. The building welcomes visitors to Georgia, representing the progressive upsurge of the country. Construction was completed this month.
