What is the patio made of?
   Comment   September 3, 2012
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Gardner Mohr Architects LLC
The patio and the interior floor immediately inside consist of brick pavers -- Manganese Ironspot, by Endicott. 1-5/8" thick for the interior, and a full 3-5/8" paver for the exterior. The interior has a finish on it by Prosoco.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This "Sixties Solarium" in Washington, DC was renovated to improve the thermal performance of a 1969-era addition to a 1929 house. Translucent panels comprise the second floor wall above glass doors, all capped by a projecting roof that offers some shade but also incorporates down lighting for the patio below.
