Awarded in the category of ‘New Concept of the Year’ by AHEAD, Stamba was identified as a highlight by AHEAD judge Constantina Tsoutsikou, creative director at Hirsch Bedner Associates.
Housed in one of Tbilisi’s most important 20th-century landmarks – a Soviet-era printing press - the Stamba Hotel takes on the spirit of the former publishing house by showcasing the brutalist splendor of the original structure, including rediscovered printing paraphernalia that has been imaginatively restored and repurposed.
