In Halifax, Nova Scotia, an area of a ferry port recently underwent renovations that were designed to give the public a more functional and efficient service. The project was carried out by Canadian architectural studio Abbott Brown Architects in three phases and completed last year, with Caesar supplying the ceramic floor tiling for the Alderney Gate pedestrian walkway.
The thirty-year-old Alderney Gate Pedway was no longer fit for the needs of its users. Today, after three different projects to upgrade the facility, it is a welcoming and elegant hub that facilitates the link to adjacent buildings which include the Alderney ferry terminal, the Alderney Gate public library and the Alderney Landing cultural centre, which comprises a theatre, art gallery and covered market.
Cutting-edge design was used to create a significant overall improvement, with three separate waiting areas – each with accessible seating – and a more effective air-conditioning system. The interior finishes were also upgraded to include Caesar’s Life and Tecnolito series, which blend perfectly with the relaxed atmosphere of well-being and the naturalness of wood. This series offers a very original interpretation of the wood essence with its light Nordic shade and typical 20x120cm gangway size. The Tecnolito marble-effect porcelain tile, in 30x60cm and dark Charcoal shade, expertly creates a sophisticated contrast.
