Recent years have seen the emergence of an exceptional project in Putuo, one of Shanghai’s ten inner-city boroughs. With 'CEG Schwarzwald', the project developers of China Eagle Group (CEG) are sending a positive message for a new consciousness in China. Amidst a forest of 20.000 trees, the 'Schwarzwald' apartment towers offer the unique synthesis of living a modern urban life in a quality environment. Many metropolitans are longing for a place of tranquillity and relaxation where their families might adopt a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. To meet these desires, CEG created an innovative and forward-thinking project, satisfying the highest standards with regards to comfort and quality of life.
True to its name, the central theme of the 'Shades of Grey' show apartment focusses on a full range of grey nuances. With its elegant and meditative calm, the apartment would perfectly suit a globetrotter’s desires after a long and tiring trip. Layers and interactions of premium materials, fascinating textures and high-contrast surfaces turn this 250-square-metre apartment into a metropolitan sanctuary with a breath-taking view of Shanghai’s skyline.
Upon entering the apartment, a piece of art in green tones instantly attracts the visitor’s attention. A spacious living-dining area with an integrated floor-to-ceiling kitchen extends across the entire apartment width. From the balcony on the northside, through the interior and all the way to the horizon on the opposing side, nothing in the apartment blocks the clear view. A painted aluminium slat ceiling both zones the living-dining area and creates a cosy atmosphere through indirect lighting. Filigree and nearly invisible, a glass shelve separates the dining table from a spacious couch arrangement and offers space for memories. Herringbone-patterned parquet flooring in dark grey literally lays the foundation for the 'Shades of Grey' theme, whereas contrasting hues of green and blue create highlights and support the apartment’s modern, elegant and calm atmosphere. Thanks to a variation of textured plaster and paint surfaces, the 20-metre wall opposed to the entrance visually comes alive.
