The filling station, which was constructed by Giorgi Khmaladze in 2013, belongs to SOCAR Energy Georgia, a daughter company of Azerbaijan's state energy company.

The project is located in one of the newly urbanized parts of the seaside city of Batumi and includes fuels station, McDonald's, recreational spaces and reflective pool.
Spaces are composed in such way, that two major functions vehicle services and dining are isolated from one another, both physically and visually so that all operations of fuel station are hidden from the view of the customers of the restaurant, ArchDaily says.
