MUA architects utilized an abandoned building in Tbilisi, Georgia to create a thriving and communal artistic hub for local and foreign emerging talent. FABRIKA is the revitalized product of an old sewing factory that operated during Soviet times.

The facade of the building is covered in elaborate and style-varying graffiti with some recognizable references to artists like Jean-Michael Basquiat. MUA recreated the existing interior of the artistic hub, while maintaining a creative and welcoming atmosphere with open-concept spaces, bare walls, reused site material and vintage décor.

FABRIKA Tbilisi's purpose is to be an artistic hub that fosters inspiration, collaboration and intellectual banter. The space is equipped with rehearsal and art studios, a gallery, artist residences, plus hostels, cafes, bars and other spaces that are accessible to the public.
