In this multilevel project, 44,000 square-feet of terrazzo is divided between sand-cushion on lower floors and epoxy terrazzo on the upper. In addition, 10,000 square-feet of 87-year-old sand cushion terrazzo was polished to a like-new finish. For sound insulation, an epoxy undercoat with ground rubber tires was installed on the upper floors. With its six monolithic, muted tones accented by heavy top divider strip, the floor design honors the character of the architecture. The 10 poured-in-place stairways, with numerous curbs, plinths and stairs with polished edges, stringers and six-inch gutters, all hand ground, are meticulously executed.
