This 3,500 square-foot installation brings in 3/8” epoxy terrazzo to match the sand-cushion terrazzo of the original 1960s building. Both the contractor’s craftsmanship and the versatility of terrazzo are demonstrated in the poured-in-place baptismal font and immersion pool, with curbs and side walls, and in the steps and strip work, moving from one color to another.  Perfectly matching the two colors and Italian marble aggregates of the original structure, the new installation is clean, beautiful, and indistinguishable from that in the original spaces.
