An innovative use of materials distinguishes this 7,500 square foot terrazzo installation. Originally built in 1927, the drab 176,000 square foot structure had been vacant since 2004. The new terrazzo floors in seven elevator lobbies incorporate a unique Zen-style combination of natural river rock visible through clear resin.  In the mezzanine and main levels, that basic blend unifies the design while it varies to incorporate orbital marble tile, metal shavings, and two different sizes of metal discs, reminiscent of coins.
