Henning Larsen Architects, in collaboration with consulting engineers Buro Happold, won an international competition for this stunning new resort. Located in the Georgian town of Abastumani, near the southern slope of the Meskheti Range at the entrance to the Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park, this 200-room hotel, conference center, and spa, will feature terraced green roofs, allowing the facility to seamlessly blend into the landscape.
While having a green roof on a spa near a national park doesn't require much imagination, it does take a conscious effort to use green roofs in a design. While major cities such as London, Chicago, and Mexico City are leaders in commercial green roofs, it is good to see their use spread through greater parts of the world.
Swiss and Germans have done.
