The ferry port area of Halifax, a regional municipality of eastern Canada and the provincial capital of Nova Scotia, has been the subject of important renovation work designed to provide its citizens with an even more efficient and functional service. The work, carried out in three different phases, has seen the involvement of Ceramiche Caesar, the Italian tile company responsible for supplying the ceramic floor tile for the Alderney Gate pedestrian walkway.

The new space has been restructured in line with cutting-edge design trends that have resulted in significant overall improvement, with a more effective air conditioning system and the creation of three separate waiting areas, each with accessible seating.

The upgrade also involved interior finishes, with Caesar contributing to the architectonic contemporaneity with its Life and Tecnolito series. The naturalness of wood and an atmosphere of relaxed well-being marry with the ceramic functionality of the Life series, which offers a very original interpretation of the wood essence with its light Nordic shade and 20- x120-cm gangway size. This is flanked by the skillful and sophisticated contrast of Tecnolito marble-effect porcelain tile, which was implemented in a 30- x 60-cm format and dark Charcoal shade.
