Project description

Formerly a customs station, Shekou area begun its transformation in the 80s, serving as a base for the small contingent of foreign oil platform workers employed in the main Western oil majors. As a result of this move Shekou gradually become home to expatriate population, thus old factories and offices transformed in a western-style elegant residential and entertainment area. The apartment we refurbished was located in one of these new skyscrapers.

Interiors have been totally re-designed. The restoration employed different teams of Italian artisans for laying marble tiling and building plasterboard walls. Chosen materials are all imported from Italy, as the travertine marble used for coverings, kitchen and bathroom shelves. The logistic organization took several months of work and a huge coordination to have the 1000 tiles travelling by sea.
