Didi Dighomi Mini-City

SGA to Build Infrastructure, Homes and Commerce in Tbilisi, Georgia

Simone de Gale Architects are elated to be working with Georgian Authorities to propose a game-changing development of 525,500 sq.m in Tbilisi, Georgia, dubbed ‘Didi Dighomi Mini-City”. The exciting new development will be a Public Business Zone 1 complex comprising a state-of-the-art shopping centre, cinema, leisure facilities, a luxury public park, office, commercial spaces and around 3000 new homes.

Simone de Gale Architects is an award-winning UK practice which specializes in exploring contemporary practices of architecture whilst combining functionality in style. Led by 2017 Women in Construction’s Architect of the Year winner, Simone de Gale, the company is excited to be involved in the creation of the new “Mini-City”. SGA has developed its beautiful sculptural city scale art in keeping with their Client’s business ethos of precision-manufacturing and high-quality functionality.

Georgia on my Mind
The first of its kind development in the north-west area of Georgia’s capital, Didi Dighomi will be a vital part of Tbilisi’s regeneration, and will create thousands of new jobs for people in and around Tbilisi and further afield. As well as providing new long-term employment, the complex will utilize local materials and labour, manufacturing resources and an array of auxiliary services in order to provide a much-needed boost to the area and attract local and international investment and visitors from all over the world.

A Design for Life
The ambitious project which is estimated will take 15 years to complete through a phased construction programme, has been designed to embody the harmonious architectural rules of repetition, rhythm and pattern to create an articulation of pure geometry, through modern buildings separated by contemporary courtyards and green spaces.

Previous successful projects commissioned by the company include super-prime residential in London, multiple residential developments, and luxury resorts in the Caribbean.

Of the proposed development in Georgia which has now been submitted for Government approval, Simone de Gale says, “With every project, we gauge an understanding of our Client’s identity, their ambition and their aspirations. It was clear from the start that our Client wanted to significantly increase the opportunity for home ownership and forward-thinking architecture within the project. They wanted to mix some existing structures with new buildings and provide a range of amenities. Our Client wanted the development, a 160,000sq.m site to extend the capital of Georgia. We looked to their identity and translated a timeless architecture which becomes an abstract painting, sculpted on the city scale. We worked hard to come up with an intricate and robust scheme, and I am very excited for the next stages as we move through Government Approvals.

Fuel Station Georgia
Spaces are composed in such way, that two major programs – 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. Because of the predefined, small building footprint, most of the supporting and utility spaces are grouped and located on the ground level to be close to all technical access points.
