Versatile, durable and design flexible, terrazzo was specified for 90,000 square feet in the common areas of this public building. The floor design recalls the inlaid patterns and marquetry of the art deco style of the city’s historic structures. In a style neither purely traditional nor purely modern, multicolor chevrons, ribs and banding patterns unify the design elements and define spaces throughout the zones and levels of the building. Marble aggregates complement the wood and stone wall panels, with glass, porcelain and mother-of-pearl added for depth and sparkle. The focal point in the lobby is a monumental staircase with three landings and outstandingly clean lines.
