Rest Stops Gori
2009 – 2011
In 2009, the head of the Roads Department of Georgia commissioned J.MAYER.H to design a system of 20 rest stops for the new highway, a thoroughfare that will run through Georgia and serve as a connection between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Turkey. Two first rest stops were completed in 2011 near Gori, a third in Lochini was finished 2012. The new rest stops are located on selected scenic viewpoints along the route and serve as activators for their area and neighbouring cities, including not only nearby a gas stations and supermarket, but also a farmers market and a cultural space for local arts and crafts.
