Beauty joins functionality in this corporate campus expansion. An employee-centered architectural plan proposes informal meeting spaces and unexpected outdoor amenities scattered throughout, achieving a professional-yet-relaxed environment. Terrazzo was selected for the public atrium space for its durability and longevity. This floor brings the beaches indoors, with a wood-planked walkway mimicking a boardwalk. The walkway is surrounded by an elegantly simple, uniform terrazzo micro-blend mix, meticulously crafted with five percent mother-of-pearl and amber glass aggregate to simulate beach sand.
