Thanks for the note. The floors were left a natural color with just a little lamp black added. We wanted the floors to look like concrete!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to The Truth About 'Simple' Modern Details
Storefront WindowsAnother identifying characteristic of modern architectural design is the storefront glazing system. These aluminum-framed systems allow for much larger expanses of glass within smaller-profile supports when compared to wood-framed systems.The result can be floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall glazing that dematerializes the wall and, therefore, the overall mass of the home. The name, not surprisingly, comes from the fact that most of these types of systems are used for storefronts, where maximizing the glazed area is important.While a storefront system doesn't necessarily cost more on a square-foot basis than a traditional window, the sheer size of the window wall in a modern home means that, as a percentage of the budget, glass and glazing will be more.
Concrete can also be rendered silky smooth. The troweling and final finishing of the concrete is the mark of a skilled concrete subcontractor. When floors are left exposed, as in this example, the skill of the tradespeople is particularly important as well as the curing process. Any covering left touching the top of the concrete will cause a variegated finish; a hand trowel and a machine trowel will both leave different finishing marks. Note the joint pattern, which the architects have dutifully aligned with the window mullion. These joints are critical parts of the story of concrete. As it cures, concrete shrinks and cracks, so care must be taken to control the location of that cracking. These so-called “control joints” are slots that are tooled or cut into the face of the concrete, making it just a little bit weaker than the surrounding concrete and thus the first place the concrete will crack as it cures. Knowing these details, however small, enriches the experience and understanding of a place.

Storefront Windows Another identifying characteristic of modern architectural design is the storefront glazing system. These aluminum-framed systems allow for much larger expanses of glass within smaller-profile supports when compared to wood-framed systems. The result can be floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall glazing that dematerializes the wall and, therefore, the overall mass of the home. The name, not surprisingly, comes from the fact that most of these types of systems are used for storefronts, where maximizing the glazed area is important. While a storefront system doesn't necessarily cost more on a square-foot basis than a traditional window, the sheer size of the window wall in a modern home means that, as a percentage of the budget, glass and glazing will be more.
