From the moment one steps foot on the property, sand cushion terrazzo guides you from the outside, through the lobby doors, and into a very glitzy design of the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. The epoxy terrazzo in the interior has a warm and fun feel, which the architect achieved by using 8 different colors consisting of crushed mirror, colored glass and mother of pearl aggregates. The Cafe includes a checkered pattern in the floor that pulls you into the serving area. Cast-in-place cove base, installed on a radius, was used in the Cafe for easy clean up. In addition to the thousands of feet of terrazzo on the first level, six levels of elevator lobbies include terrazzo with red circles and black accent bands. The architect did not miss a beat when designing this state of the art hospital, as all finishes tie into one another encouraging patients and visitors to follow the sparkle of the mirror throughout this beautiful project.
