Rocky Creek
Elementary School

Lexington, SC
2012 Honor Award Winner


Terrazzo Contractor
David Allen Company
Raleigh, NC

This school was designed with the goals of promoting collaborative learning and meeting LEED Silver Certification requirements. Using thin-set epoxy terrazzo for both sustainability and design flexibility, the terrazzo contractor collaborated closely with the architect to create this 25,590-square-foot artistic rendering of the surrounding landscape. Nature comes indoors with the free form image of a meandering blue stream running through the corridors, brightened with recycled glass and mirror aggregates, with splashes of natural earth tones reminiscent of creek banks. In the center commons area, a grand compass directs young explorers.
