The transformation of an old industrial site into a multi-use facility was accomplished using large-aggregate Palladiana and Venetian terrazzo with inlaid brass accents. The textured curves of the platform, benches, planters, and steps carve out a productive meeting space within lobby circulation, lending value to the property. Stair nosings render the appearance of a two-inch-thick slab, though the innovative design is achieved with a three-eighths-inch thin-set epoxy terrazzo system. The hand-broken marble was fractured, mounted, and installed offsite in numbered sheets, and reassembled onsite like pieces of a puzzle. The entire floor was ground and polished as a monolithic whole.
