This corporate headquarter cafeteria is titled, “A Dining Cornucopia”. The recently renovated cafeteria reflects a different color and theme at each food station. Terrazzo flooring was chosen to replace the worn and outdated brownish quarry tile that had been in place in the existing dining room. The terrazzo flooring is comprised of nine separate resin colors, and multiple aggregate patterns. Some of the smaller accent panels are 100% clear glass, while other panels have both clear and colored glass and conventional marble aggregates. Another noteworthy item is the use of terrazzo ovals and circular patterns within the floor. The architect wanted the terrazzo floor to flow within the space, and not have a square and boxy look often found in food serving areas. Terrazzo with its unlimited color and pattern range makes this area a pleasant dining environment for employees. Low-cost maintenance and a long lifecycle made terrazzo flooring the obvious choice for this corporate cafeteria.
