UCLA Pauley Pavilion


Pauley_Pavilion

Architect: NBBJ – Los Angeles, CA
Terrazzo Contractor: Top End Constructors, Inc. – Sun Valley, CA
Terrazzo Resin Supplier: Terrazzo & Marble Supply Companies
(Terroxy® Resin Systems)

 

Design Notes: Top End Constructors and NBBJ Architects had to work together to expand and renovate the UCLA Pauley Pavilion into a modern facility while matching the university’s signature structure and layout.  A monolithic design was chosen, with a simple four color pattern of bands and stripes.   This helped achieve a seamless finish with an excellent color match for this 70,000 square-foot epoxy terrazzo floor, base and stair stadium.  A combination of cast in place and precast terrazzo was used for the waterfall staircase, along with curbs of terrazzo for the stairwells.

 

With terrazzo, the possibilities are endless. Let the floor be your canvas and bring terrazzo into your next project by contacting your Architectural Sales Consultant for assistance at 800.7.MARBLE or visit www.tmsupply.com.

Terrazzo: Limited Only By Your Imagination

What is terrazzo?

Terrazzo flooring systems have existed for centuries, dating back to Roman times. Marble chips, byproducts of exquisite sculptures, were mixed with cement and ground to a polished finish to create the original terrazzo flooring system. This enduring mixture is still used today, but with a few modern modifications.

With your surface as the canvas, Terroxy® Resin Systems provides the ability to transform creativity into a durable and timeless art. The glue that truly bonds your system together, Terroxy® Resin Systems’ Epoxy Matrix, provides a beautiful, seamless surface that is easy to maintain.

Terroxy® Epoxy Matrix:

Terroxy® Epoxy Matrix provides a system that is long lasting and easy to maintain. Resistant to chemicals, oil, grease and bacteria, Terroxy® Epoxy Matrix is ideal for commercial, industrial and institutional applications. This special formula does not allow for colors to fade or to wear thin. The colors you choose today will be just as vibrant in 40 years.

Terrazzo Chip-Aggregate For Terrazzo Flooring:

The specialty aggregates included in terrazzo flooring are the primary ingrediant of the terrazzo design mix, typically representing 70% of the flooring system. These aggregates are most commonly marble chips; however, glass and other specialty aggregates are also suitable for terrazzo flooring.

Domus Divider Strip:

Divider strips are commonly used in terrazzo flooring to serve two basic needs: form and function. For thin-set epoxy terrazzo, the most common divider strips are an “L” type manufactured in a white zinc alloy or brass.

Divider strips may simply serve as a transition between colors or they may be bent on the job site or water-jet cut at the factory to form intricate designs, logo artwork and lettering.

The primary function divider strips offer is to control cracking in your terrazzo flooring topping.

T&M offers custom strip design for any terrazzo project from basic patterns to the most complex designs.

ecoTrazzo-Sustainable Living:

ecoTrazzo is a thin-set epoxy terrazzo flooring system designed to provide additional green benefits relative to traditional poured-in-place terrazzo systems.

The key components to an ecoTrazzo floor include the incorporation of sustainable chips and VOC.

Common Applications:

  • Airports
  • Cafeterias

Design Notes: The possibilities are endless when designing with terrazzo.   A true fairytale landscape was specifically designed for terrazzo in this LEED-certified project.  The combination of bright and fun colors along with animated images not only creates a warm and comforting space, but also opens up an artistic dialogue with young patients.   21 epoxy terrazzo colors and the combination  of metal works and custom water-jet cuts were used in the design process to create a brush stroke appearance in this 6,000 square-foot installation.

Always Make a Grand First Impression!

First impressions are lasting impressions.  It only takes one-tenth of a second for someone to paint an image of who you are or how you live.  They aren’t always accurate, and can be misleading at times.  We are all very critical of one another, especially each other’s homes.  If this very second, someone were to walk through your front door, what would your entryway say about you?

Remember the entryway sets the tone for the rest of your home.  Work with the space you have.  Determine whether you want to make a comfy and inviting entryway or a bold and daring one. There is no wrong or right way when it comes to decorating your entryway, it’s more of a sample taste of what your visitors will get when they enter your home.

A great entryway doesn’t always have to be over the top; pick and choose what you want your focal point to be.  Check out this amazing Feathered Oyster Quartzite installation that T&M supplied.  This practical home chose to enhance and focus on the flooring, while keeping the walls neutral and furniture minimal. (This is definitely not your ordinary entryway, but we love it!)

Feathered Oyster Quartzite

Below is actually the entryway to our wheeling location.  Being a terrazzo & stone company, we decided to make the flooring part of the main attraction.  It is a beautiful blend of Terrazzo, Marble and Limestone.

T&M_Wheeling_ShowroomDSC_0008

We are speechless, check out this 160 sqft epoxy terrazzo rug in the entryway of this private residence.  Create the illusion of a rug by using terrazzo or natural stone.  This method will not only outlast the life of a rug, but the home itself!

16399_534120293295528_398931258_n

You don’t always have to concentrate on the flooring.  You can engage visitors immediately by displaying family photos or art in the entryway. You can make your entryway super girly or macho manly.  Remember it’s your entryway and it’s a vision of your personality.

The most important rule to follow is to make your entryway inviting.

Dark, Sexy & Mysterious … BLACK!

Join the dark side! For all those risk takers, those out of the ordinary bunches that are bold enough to join the dark side, the reward can be breathtaking.  Ok we don’t really want you to join the dark side; we just want you to see how decorating your space with the color black can be stunning.  Black is the most dramatic color, it grounds a room and draws the eye.

Decorating with black is not easy; it takes a special hand and some creativity.  Any room can handle black, it’s just the amount that you use that draws that fine line between grand & depressing. There are limitless ways to get creative with using black in the kitchen.  A black countertop or backsplash can add a unique yet sophisticated feel to any room.  Remember, black is just like any other color it comes in many different shades, tones and finishes. A slick black floor tile can be mesmerizing.  Black floor tiles have the power to accent everything else in the room.

Accessorize YOUR Stone!

We are forecasting that glass and glass blends will be huge in 2013.  While some may think that glass tiles are just a trend that could phase out, we would like to differ.  If applied strategically or subtly, glass tiles can be both timeless and classy.  Think of glass as ‘jewelry’ for your stone.  A strong piece of jewelry can make anyone feel like a million bucks, so why not translate that into your décor!

Dressing up your stone can make a significant statement in your home.  Don’t get us wrong, glass and glass blends can look great on their own such as a backsplash but we love seeing them in small punches. Every day we see more and more customers feel more comfortable with mixing man-made materials with natural stone.  Plus, this gives everyone a great opportunity to create custom looks.
