W.C. Reavis Elementary Hits High Note with Terrazzo

Terrazzo W.C. Reavis

Historically, one-room schoolhouses let children know the school day was about to begin with the ringing of a bell atop the building. When renovating W.C. Reavis Elementary School, the Lansing School District asked JMA Architects to pay homage to this tradition in its designs for the building’s additions.

Completed in two phases, the renovations included a new main entry, principal’s office, classrooms, conference rooms, library, gym, restrooms, and a teacher’s planning room. Updates were made to current office spaces, the art room, classrooms, and the school’s cafeteria.

The entryway includes a modernized bell tower with a custom light fixture. To continue this bell design on the floor, JMA Architects created a custom terrazzo design using the school’s color scheme of reds, greys, and whites.

“The design is reflective of the light fixture acting as a bell clanger,” Gail Barenie, JMA Architects, said. “The sound waves of the bell are continued in the pattern, traveling from that main entrance down the corridor.”

The arc pattern is carried throughout the school, with gypsum circle light fixtures and perforated panels at classroom doorways.

“We tried to use the circle everywhere we could from small scale to the large scale to bring the design to the entire school,” Barenie said.

Terrazzo wasn’t only chosen because of its ability to continue the arc design on the floor though. The school district requested terrazzo be used in the entryway and corridors due to is durability and maintenance ease.

“The district prefers terrazzo,” Barenie said. “They would like to use it in all their schools.”

Terrazzo Reflects School’s Bright Mission

ASPIRA Entryway terrazzo

The architects at MoDE Architects already had many colors in mind at the very beginning of the project to build the new ASPIRA of Illinois Business and Finance High School. After spending a short time in the John Caretti showroom, all seven colors and the aggregates were chosen quickly. The school, located in the Logan Square neighborhood in Chicago, wanted a building that reflected its concepts of awareness, analysis, and action. And MoDE succeeded, creating an atmosphere of achievement and learning.
ASPIRA terrazzo

Since 1961, ASPIRA has been working to provide Hispanic and Puerto Rican students with programs that encourage and inspire them to stay in school to prepare them to succeed academically, develop leadership skills, and serve their communities.

John Caretti installed 1,995 square feet of terrazzo in the corridors, entryway, and throughout the school. And the seven different colors—in shades of black, grey, white, yellow, green, and blue — were used to capture the spirit of ASPIRA’s mission.

Julie Bradford, project manager with John Caretti, said the installation went smoothly. According to Bradford, the one small challenge—hand bending all the radii out in the field, didn’t present much of a challenge to the terrazzo installers.

“Even with the hand bending in mind, my foreman mechanic did a great job transferring the architect’s design from paper into the actual installation,” she said.

Biomedical Science Research Building, University of Michigan

Biomedical Building

At the University of Michigan’s Biomedical Science Research Building, there is an emphasis on intellectual collaboration and innovation. This spirit carries over into the building’s architecture with a clean, modern design that represents different scientific themes rather than individual departments.

Biomedical Building terrazzo

The building’s lobby serves as the well-traveled heart of this collaboration, connecting laboratories, faculty offices, and seminar rooms together. Terrazzo’s durability and flexible design provided the necessary attributes to stand up to high traffic while meeting the modern design requirement.

An eye-catching four-color linear pattern is featured in the lobby, using the classic UofM blue and gold and a pristine white background to create elegant pathways. Pockets of colors are used to indicate meeting spaces along the 20,000 square feet of these pathways, reminding visitors of the building’s collaboration intent.

Northwestern Memorial Hospital Outpatient Care Pavilion
Northwestern terrazzo

For its new Outpatient Care Pavilion, Northwestern Memorial Hospital needed a public space that would connect the new building with the existing buildings on the healthcare campus. 

To create the flowing pattern necessary to guide visitors through the space, terrazzo was used to tie together the old and new in a classic, yet contemporary way.

They incorporated old and new with curve, bar, and band designs in neutral colors. Kimberly Cook, associate vice president at CannonDesign, said the combination of these design aspects with the building’s architecture helped to create a better sense of flow.

“We brought the two elements of organized geometry and curving organic form together to bridge some of what was happening in the building and on the Northwestern campus overall,” she said.

The subtle, neutral colors were chosen to create a dynamic pattern that would create the effect the hospital was after. 

“The only material we felt could accomplish the organic shape in a successful and impactful manner was terrazzo,” Cook said.

Terrazzo Bridges the Gap on Hospital Campus

Northwestern Hospital

Terrazzo brings together design and practicality, form and function, classic and modern. On a healthcare campus like Northwestern Memorial Hospital, it ties together the existing and the new, telling a story from one building to the next—leading patients along their road back to health.

When Northwestern Memorial Hospital decided to build a 26-story outpatient care pavilion in its downtown Chicago
campus, one word came to mind—connections. It was necessary to create a public space that would bridge existing campus buildings together with a flowing pattern to guide people through the space. To accomplish this design, it was clear that the first and second floors needed to be terrazzo.

A curving form combined with bars and bands in subtle shades of white, tan, and gray were used to help with way-finding in the building. The linear and curved aspects of the flooring helped to create a sense of flow when combined with a curved structural piece, said Kimberly Cook, associate vice president at CannonDesign.

“We brought the two elements of organized geometry and curving organic form together in the floor pattern of the terrazzo to bridge some of what was happening not only within the building’s architecture, but with the campus architecture overall for Northwestern,” she said.

Though subtle colors were chosen, Cook said the ability to create dynamic pattern with the terrazzo was one of the main reasons it was chosen for the outpatient care pavilion.

“The only material we felt could accomplish the organic shape in a successful and impactful manner was
terrazzo,” Cook said.

Another important factor in choosing terrazzo was its sustainability and ease of maintenance.

“It’s key for the client to feel confident that a material will last for the long haul and still look and perform as well as it did when it was originally installed,” Cook said.

Terrazzo Creates Perfect Chemistry Between Science and Art

Silverman Hall
More often than not, science and art are seen as opposite sides of the spectrum. Logic versus creativity. Reality versus imagination. Right brain versus left brain.

But if you take a look at the remarkable terrazzo floors in the Richard and Barbara Silverman Hall for Molecular Therapeutics and Diagnostics, you will find that one without the other is impossible. The terrazzo teaches you that science is beautiful and artwork is one of the grandest experiments in the world.

Soon after John Caretti & Co. was awarded the terrazzo project for a new science and medicine research facility at Northwestern University, the school received a donation from Dr. Richard Silverman, a chemistry professor at the college. This donation was made possible by royalties received from Lyrica, an innovative therapy drug developed by Silverman for neuropathic diseases.

Silverman Hall Terrazzo Molecule

The decision was then made to add metalwork to the terrazzo that showed the significance of science. Among the shades of green and cream terrazzo lay intricately detailed inlays of the periodic table, single strands of the helix shape, elements and molecules, and the chemical molecule makeup of Lyrica, the drug that helped to fund the research facility. These designs not only reflect the areas and research of the university, but serve as linking elements throughout the building.

“Silverman Hall is designed to enhance interactions and collaborations among colleagues,” Anita Ambriz of Ambriz Graphic Design, the environmental graphic design firm for the project, said.

According to Ambriz, the terrazzo was chosen for its beauty, design flexibility, low maintenance, durability, and its compliance with the university’s green technology requirement. As a sustainable flooring option, terrazzo contributed to Silverman Hall’s Silver LEED certification.

“We adjusted the aggregates within a limited palette to create subtlety in the imagery,” Ambriz said. “No other flooring material seemed to offer this possibility

Early Education

Early Education Hard Facts terrazzo

Children and their education are our future. The schools they attend must provide them with safety, support, and inspiration. This means longevity, durability, and sustainability are necessary components of the building’s design. Terrazzo flooring is ideal for this.

The inclusion of school logos, mascots, and colors in terrazzo flooring adds charm and excitement and rouses school spirit among students, faculty, and staff. As no two terrazzo floors are the same, schools know their floors display spirit and pride in a uniquely beautiful way.

Because of the thousands of feet that will pass over the floors, schools need to be certain the flooring will deliver the longevity and sustainability they need, all with minimal maintenance costs. As the wear on terrazzo is excellent and it is among the easiest flooring options to maintain, it provides schools with a hassle-free foundation.

In early education, the key is to inspire, energize, and intrigue students throughout the school day. The vibrancy and flexibility of terrazzo designs help to promote active thinking and learning in young minds.

Today, we not only think about educating children, but also how to keep them as healthy as possible. We often worry about the spreading of germs, especially in schools. Epoxy terrazzo is anti-microbial in many ways, as it doesn’t allow for the growth of bacteria or mold. This makes it perfect for education facilities around the country.

In this edition of Hard Facts, we take a look at some examples of how design and sustainability combine to create some truly inspiring schools.

Crossroads Elementary Hard Facts terrazzo
Crossroads Elementary School, KY

At Crossroads Elementary, the design was simple – color everywhere. From the paint on the walls to the terrazzo throughout the school, twelve different bright and bold colors promote active thinking and learning.

“The ease of using colors to make for very distinctive floors that is particular to the school is very appealing,” Anna Tatman of Rosa Mosaic Tile & Terrazzo said.

The colors used on the walls and on the floor of Crossroads not only serve as learning tools, but as directional markers as well. Each grade was assigned a color for the columns and walls at the entrance to its wing. The flexibility of terrazzo allowed for the color to be continued on the floors, leading children to their appropriate classrooms.

“They’ve created an energetic learning environment. Colors tend to make our brains active and they instill in us various reactions,” Tatman said. “They were able to use these colors to create a very active learning space. It’s a wonderfully exciting, bright, and active space.”

Paducah Middle School Hard Facts terrazzo

Paducah Middle School, KY

Completed in 2013, Paducah Middle School is a brand new facility for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in the Paducah Public Schools system. Kevin Rickman of Missouri Terrazzo said terrazzo was chosen for the hallways, lobby, and cafeteria of the new construction because of its durability and longevity.

At the entrance to the building is the school’s logo, a 24-foot blue Fighting Tornado. Consisting of nine colors, the logo depicts a Fighting Tornado armed with a book and pencil, ready to learn. The logo also features a compass, with a degree marker pointed towards Paducah Tilghan High School to remind the children of success and moving forward. Above the logo, the words “academic excellence” are surrounded by yellow stars.

“That’s to remind the students to reach for the stars with all their academic and personal lives,” Rickman said. “They really put a lot of thought into the design pattern to remind the kids to go above and beyond.”

The hallways on both the first and second floors feature a white epoxy with an accenting radius border of blue epoxy.  Within the white epoxy are 120 1 ft. high blue epoxy Fighting Tornadoes, promoting school spirit throughout the building.

West Ridge Hard Facts terrazzo
West Ridge Elementary School, IL

West Ridge Elementary is home to some truly inspiring terrazzo flooring, earning an NTMA honor award as well as LEED Silver certification. Each floor is a creative exploration of various educational themes that begin with the letter “p”, from the full number Pi embedded along one hallway to the planets in the solar system to a hall that has a chronological listing of the presidents.

“The artisans who were installing the terrazzo were so excited about their floors,” Mindy Viamontes, project manager/project architect with Muller & Muller, said. “They were so eager to uncover their work and show it off.”

In addition to the colors and the shapes, the floor design is something teachers can use in lessons. The planets are not labeled so students can identify them. The presidents hallways includes names and dates, but doesn’t include any additional information about their terms. Because the school was completed in 2010, the hallway is up-to-date and includes current president and Chicagoan, Barack Obama.

Bringing Students Together

SIUC Student Center terrazzo

The student center is an important hub for any university–it’s a resource for students as well as a refuge from the stresses of academic life and often a much-needed social community for newcomers. Designing a student center means creating a space that will take a warm and fuzzy center in the memory of many an alum, that will lift the spirits and bring the community together.

Architects White & Borgognoni took a striking approach to this idea of community and togetherness visually uniting the four levels in a 3-color elliptical terrazzo pattern. The flexibility of terrazzo allowed for some truly creative design, and the result is one that emphasizes a sense of togetherness in the echo of the pattern along each floor. Standing on the top level and looking down through the atrium you see a building united in symmetry, coming together in the focal point on the entry floor.

This idea of unity is very much at the heart of the new student center, which was built to house all of the key university services in one place, effectively bringing together all the resources in one welcoming space, and the design of the flooring is a really lovely nod to that idea.

The 100% marble aggregate terrazzo provides a few unique advantages: not only is it flexible enough to support a wide range of designs, but it is so durable that this very heart of the student center is sure to last through many a reunion, supporting fond memories and inspiring new ones for years to come.

It’s not just student centers that terrazzo’s got covered–there is a long a proud history of terrazzo in higher education, providing not just durable support but highly sustainable flooring in many a well-loved building.

There’s Nothing Normal About Uptown Station

Uptown Station terrazzo

You’d be wrong to refer to Uptown Station in Normal, Ill., as a train station. Yes, it is the second-busiest Amtrak station in Illinois, right behind Chicago, servicing more than 200,000 passengers a year. But it is also a centralized hub for those traveling via plane, bus, car, and bike.

It’s also the town of Normal’s City Hall.

For such an important new public building with a huge amount of foot traffic, terrazzo was installed on the ground floor, where durability and a terrific first impression are top priorities.

In the building’s main throughway, an intricate terrazzo graphic of a compass includes tributes to each of the four modes of transportation that Uptown Station brings together: rail, bus, car, and bike. The design captures the essence of the station’s status as a multimodal

transportation center, while elegantly uniting nostalgia for the past with the high-speed technology of the present.
The project, which recently received a 2013 NTMA Honor Award, also included precast terrazzo steps with poured-in-place epoxy terrazzo intermediate stair landings, precast 4-inch terrazzo along the walls, and poured-in-place 12-inch cove bases around the ground-floor columns.

Thanks to its resiliency, Uptown Station’s shiny terrazzo will be connecting travelers for decades to come, and the city’s finance department, situated on the third floor, won’t have to worry about unexpected maintenance costs.

Terrazzo Breathes Life into New Chicago Children’s Hospital

Lurie Children's Hospital

 

Terrazzo has many remarkable qualities, but therapeutic is not usually at the top of the list. That might change, thanks to terrazzo’s soothing presence throughout the new Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

On the 11th floor of the 23-story, $855 million hospital, there’s a space where young patients can roam, explore, and connect with nature. Dubbed the Crown Sky Garden, it features live bamboo trees, benches crafted from locally harvested logs, fountains, and the soothing sounds of flowing water. It’s an immersive natural environment that can’t be found inside traditional hospitals.

Guiding children and their parents through the garden is vibrant, flowing terrazzo. Playful arcs of color lead them from the planters of bamboo and past the interactive benches to the southern portion of the garden, where gorgeous views of the Chicago skyline can be soaked up through 45-foot-tall bay windows.“Terrazzo is nice because of the range of material you can use in it,” said Ryan Shubin, project manager for Mikyoung Kim, the interior designer of the Crown Sky Garden. “We could add special granular elements to bring extra life to the garden, and we could also play it down when we wanted to allow the garden to shine.”Shubin also noted that terrazzo allows for dynamic curves and shapes, and it’s still remarkably easy to maintain.The Crown Sky Garden was completed in early June of this year. It has received high praise from designers and medical professionals alike for its union of fun and function. The goal was to create a place where patients can still benefit from the healing effects of nature when going outside is not possible. With the help of lively, sustainable terrazzo, that goal will be fulfilled for generations of children to come.
