A  clever facade banner has been installed at Curtin House in Swanston Street, Melbourne. Covering the entire building, the banner is a collective attempt at beautifying Melbourne’s construction sites made possibly by Techne Architecture + Interior Design, Schiavello Construction, Erbas, Project Insite and Seb Godfrey.

Schiavello Construction is undertaking renovation works at the Rooftop Bar & Cinema Melbourne.

Schiavello’s vision of being a leading furniture supplier and manufacturer in Asia is rapidly materializing with the new Beijing showroom located at the Heng Yi Building, a milestone position where to the south stands Beijing’s history including the Imperial Palace and Temple of Heaven, and north stands the modern Olympic Park.

The views of the Bird Nest National Stadium was the perfect backdrop to the product showcase. Reflective of the brand’s dedication to wellbeing, the event theme was steeped in greenery and showcased recent innovative office solutions such as Krossi, a sit-to-stand workstation system that allows movement in the workplace.

Special guest Gerald Thomson, the Deputy of the Australian Embassy, and Dan Tebbutt, the Australian Senior Trade Commissioner, joined Peter Schiavello, Managing Director of Schiavello Group, and Raffaele Tigani, General Manager of Schiavello International, in cutting the official opening ribbon. Guests enjoyed a delicious selection of Australian wine and an Australian inspired menu while enjoying the interactive photo wall and company history wall. An international jazz band had guests relaxing into the evening and a door prize included a trip for two down under to experience the Schiavello HQ in Melbourne. It was a memorable evening!

After one last round of drinks on April 24, the Curtin House Rooftop Cinema & Bar at 252 Swanston St, Melbourne will be transformed significantly by a complete and long-awaited renovation.
