Terrazzo is the clear center of interest in this office remodel. Its clean, crisp design combines ten colors in a pattern of twisting ribbon that defines the open, modern style. The bands of color unify the space, flowing continuously through each room in the building.  Circles of various sizes in terrazzo, and water jet-cut aluminum perfectly accent the ribbons. Subtle variations of color in the folds of the ribbons are achieved by adjustments in the aggregate mix of marble and glass. Desk tops in terrazzo, over 16 feet in length, were created with precast terrazzo slabs, precisely joined to create seamless, monumental sections.
