Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center -  Anaheim, CA

The Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center serves as a gateway to local attractions.  The structure’s bold, contemporary design incorporates 35,000 square feet of epoxy terrazzo.  Using only two color swatches along with a simple yet strategically placed floor design, the pattern handsomely addresses the architecture and is properly scaled for the magnitude of the space. The floors play their role to perfection, as a pedestal for the structure and directing the focus to the sky.  The sheen on the floors is precisely gauged to soften the strong light.

Design Notes:  The elegance of this one-of-a-kind 1,500-square-foot installation speaks for itself. The micro-quartzite aggregate supports the design and keeps the eye focused on the original chain-link pattern, staid but dynamic, contemporary yet classic in its choice of colors. The black elements, of the interwoven geometrical shapes, were formed using water-jet technology and the white sections were poured-in-place. The great thing about water-jet technology is that it allows for the creation of a monolithic floor with intricate patterns without expansion joints or metal strips for separating colors.

Design Notes: Northwestern’s new pavilion floor design was intended to bring together the Organized Geometry of the architecture of Galter/Feinberg with the Fluid Curves in the architecture of Prentice. Terrazzo brought the precision of the geometric lines with the fluidity of the soft curves together, which no other material could do. The pattern not only provides an intuitive path of travel, but an interesting aesthetic that leads its visitors throughout the space daily. The art of architecture is used by connecting the functional elements that are needed to move through the space.

The Floor As Your Canvas – Sambil Santo Domingo

Sambil

Architect: David Gabay
Terrazzo Contractor: Garcia Smester – Dominican Republic
Terrazzo Resin Supplier: Terrazzo & Marble Supply Companies
(Terroxy® Resin Systems)

 

Design Notes: The first Sambil Mall was built in 1998 in Caracas, Venezuela using cement terrazzo for its decorative floors in the corridors and walking areas. The Sambil group continued to use that flooring system in seven additional malls they constructed leading up to the construction of the Santo Domingo Mall. In 2010 they began construction on the Sambil Mall Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, the biggest Mall of the Caribbean.  With this new project they wanted higher design with brighter colors. Unfortunately with the limitations of cement terrazzo they were not able to achieve some of the bright colors the architect wanted to include. So they made the decision to switch to epoxy terrazzo for the common areas and aisles.

While researching for an experienced epoxy terrazzo contractor they located Garcia Smester, who had previously been successful on two large epoxy terrazzo projects for commercial centers in the Dominican Republic. The architect was very comfortable with Garcia Smester’s installation history and assigned this Sambil Mall project to them. Upon completion the owners & architects were extremely satisfied with the transition to epoxy terrazzo and their new mall which continues to be the center piece of the Caribbean.

Design Notes: It’s clear why LAX Bradley won this year’s NTMA Job of the Year.  This enormous airport terminal expansion includes over 555,000 square feet of 3/8” Epoxy Terrazzo in eleven different colors across 6 different levels. The architect chose a whimsical color pattern in hopes of directing traffic flow while tying each of the design elements together.   A striking, yet challenging feature are the Cast-in-Place Terrazzo portals that wrap up along the walls continuing onto the ceiling.  Precast terrazzo stair cases and landings were used to join each of the levels together.  This airport terminal illustrates the perfect balance of an artistic design flow while maintaining a functional low maintenance traffic area for the city’s expanding needs.

Architect: HNTB – San Diego, CA
Terrazzo Contractor: T.B. Penick & Sons -  San Diego, CA
Terrazzo Resin Supplier: Terrazzo & Marble Supply Companies

Design Notes: The improved San Diego International Airport features 215,000 square feet of terrazzo.  Architect, Gordon Phillips chose terrazzo not only because of its durability but the ability to produce a  multitude of design ideas while keeping a seamless and clean finish. The idea behind the design was to reflect the movement of the surf on black sand showing in order across the width of the concourses – black sand, wet sand, foam, foam on water and water in sequence.  The terrazzo pattern in the areas of the terminals known as Sunset Cove and the Rotundas, was inspired by the tide pools and boardwalks at Point Loma, a local beach in San Diego.  The results were not only beautiful but conveyed San Diego’s unique sense of home.

Design Notes: This Uptown Train Station and City Hall located in Normal, IL is anything but Normal.  Being known as the second busiest Amtrak station in Illinois, and the City Hall of Normal, terrazzo was the first choice for flooring.  A clean and simple color scheme was chosen on the ground floor in order to complement the focal point, an intricate terrazzo graphic of a compass with retro depictions of trains, buses, cars and pedestrians.  The floor layout follows a radius design throughout, tying together both ramped floors and precast treads and risers.  This 12,000 square-foot of 3/8” epoxy terrazzo in nine colors is built to last 100 years.

Design Notes: Resembling the beaches of Florida, Jacksonville International Airport Terminal Expansion has over 100 sea fossil themed glass mosaics embedded in the floor throughout the terminal.  These mosaics were hand placed with clear epoxy, then pigmented resin was poured through each of the designs.  For high traffic areas, a grand stylized wave flow design was used along with a hand broadcast blend of recycled glass and mother-of-pearl chips to represent the sun on white caps at the beach.  This 225,000 square foot terrazzo installation was polished to a 3,000 grit finish to achieve its finishing touches giving the saying ‘Welcome to Sunny Florida’ a whole new meaning.

Design Notes:  Nu Vista Living’s facility welcomes guests and visitors with its bright and inviting newly remodeled terrazzo flooring.  The focal point of this project is a fiery medallion at the center of the terrazzo floor which radiates outwards into a geometrical pattern.  Inspired by the Fibonacci sequence, the tone-on-tone colors were achieved by changing the resin color while keeping the aggregate mix the same.  In addition to marble aggregates, Mother-of-Pearl was used adding a glimmer of iridescence. The seamless floor is easily maintained and great for high traffic.
