Value engineered last minute into this 7,800-square-foot project to replace VCT, this whimsical nautical design in terrazzo is a tribute to the local community’s maritime history. The floor, with its charming combination of five colors, is low maintenance and durable. The major challenges of the job were to lay out the larger waves and to tightly intersect prefabricated strip elements – the ship, fish, bird and whale and adjoining waves – with those that were bent on site. The even distribution of glass, mother-of-pearl and marble aggregate represents the many successfully executed details evident in this fine example of terrazzo artistry.
