Strategic Interior Organization by CDG
Contract District Group (CDG) masterminded the interior layout with central partitions. Besides defining functionalities, these partitions integrate storage elements seamlessly. To enhance this, CDG employed strategic uses of semi-transparent and reflective glass systems, and concealed closures blended with partition structures. Their intricate interior design project tapped into the best solutions from their partner companies, be they standard or customized. Yet, the inception lies in their meticulous systems planning. This involves an advanced home automation setup, covering everything from security and lighting to an integrated, yet discreet, sophisticated audio and home theatre system.
CDG’s Partnerships: The Best of Made in Italy
For interior setups, CDG collaborates with Italy’s top brands, embodying the essence of ‘Made in Italy’. Some noteworthy mentions include Listone Giordano for parquet, Florim for ceramic cladding, Gessi for sanitary ware and faucets, and Flos for lighting. Ernestomeda provides the kitchens, while Karol delivers bathroom furnishings. Cesana supplies shower cubicles, Lualdi offers doors and modular panels, and Lema provides wardrobes, furniture, and accessories. Additionally, Protek presents retractable storage modules, Gervasoni takes care of outdoor living, and G.T Design caps it off with exquisite carpets.
