2010 Honor Award
Corradini Corp.
Orange County Car Barn
Fountain Valley, California

The showroom for this exotic car and motorcycle collection required a floor that would be durable, dramatic and decorative, yet not overpower the beauty of the vehicles. The designer wanted to replicate an area rug laid over a red floor. The terrazzo rug is broken into bays for the individual cars and motorcycles. Each bay is bordered by a 3 foot wide black band that has tumbled white marble mosaic accent stripes. At the intersection of each border there are three different colored medallions, all with center circles of Palladiana Terrazzo from Statuary White Marble slabs. The gray bays for the cars and the black borders were cast with 100% marble aggregates. While the saturated colors of red, yellow, black, blue, and white were made with colored glass aggregates. All terrazzo within the arcs have the addition of crushed mirror aggregate, keeping the "sparkle" in the public viewing area while the terrazzo under and around the cars is more subdued, allowing the cars to be the center of focus.
