This intricate terrazzo medallion made with ten epoxy terrazzo colors brings art into the school. The terrazzo floor’s many assets include a winsome traditional pattern complemented by a modern border. Resin and aggregate were provided by Terrazzo & Marble-Supply Companies.
One significant challenge during installation was aligning the symmetrical medallion within an asymmetrical recessed floor. The aluminum divider strips for the medallion were waterjet-cut in several pieces and assembled on the job site. The terrazzo craftsmen then subtly manipulated the 21x21 foot medallion with added strips bent onsite to obscure the imperfection of the floor.
