The Batumi cable car development links the heart of the city waterfront with the Argo Entertainment Centre development on Anuria Mountain. The route is approximately 2 km long. Engenuiti worked closely with architects RTKL and cable-car contractor Doppelmayr to develop the concept designs for the base and top stations.

The base station is the signature design taking inspiration from the structural form of ship hull construction. Steel “ribs” form the structure in two planes to the sides of the station creating a dramatic column-free interior space.
