Finally, GEONOC (Georgia National Olympic Committee) has got a new space, attributed with marvelous interiors and design in Tbilisi, Georgia. The responsibility to give the building a fresh, new and attractive look was on the Architects of Invention. Originally, the building was of Victorian era and built as a private residence to use by government since 1960. GEONOC gave attention to every corner of the building. It included restoration of exteriors, for example design garden as well as of interiors, for example office space, museum. This building has a capacity to be used as an office and museum for more than 100 staff members.
The exterior holds its classical charm, while the interior is given a contemporary and Soviet architecture. The design has the elements of sports dynamics as well contains the abstract composition. For example, instead of floor mat, the athletic track is used for floor that guides visitors around the various displays. At the entry, an introverted rectangular reception desk welcomes you with infinite deep cuts. To link the office and exhibition space, an extrovert staircase that winds through the floors is used that consists of a frame of steel with MDF. To give its structure, steps and handrails, a new and durable finish, beech veneer is used. The message of the design points out to infinite probability of human achievement.
