Terrazzo Contractor
T.B. Penick & Sons, Inc. • San Diego, CA

This project earned high ratings for its architectural design and craftsmanship. The epoxy terrazzo is a handsome canvas for prefabricated mosaic panels that integrate art with wayfinding. Depicting sea creatures, the mosaics on the ground floor are discovery points within a “walk along the seashore” theme, with bronze sand dollars. Terrazzo was poured wet-on-wet for seamless wave patterns. On the first floor is a meandering terrazzo pathway designed to simulate a forest trail. Speckled with 500 individual cast glass leaves in three different styles, the floor showcases another nine mosaic panels.
