The terrazzo installation employed at the Setai Club was one deserving special attention to match a small piece of rock that was treasured by the design firm in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Critical sizes and colors were of the upmost importance to the design team; their final selection would prove to have no less than eight various aggregates from sizes #00, #0 and #1. The membrane had to be tinted to match the epoxy resin in the finished floor to ensure that the color was uniform should you be able to see through the clear divider strips and see the membrane. The floor was poured within 1/32″ higher than the wood to prevent too much grinding of the wood. Because a large percentage of the design mix was extremely hard quartz, special diamonds needed to be made to grind the material in a cost effective manner. Two types of water based acrylic sealers were blended to give the designers the matte look they were seeking. The finished product introduced elements from the wild jungle the designers wanted.
