    Thanks for the question, rizzadelc85. The floors contain glass chips inlaid within the polished concrete - meant to look like terrazzo. Our team at Novell poured a specifically engineered concrete topping mix onto each floor to encase the in-floor radiant heat. We let the floors cure a little before sprinkling in the glass chips, allowing the glass to sink in a little, then the floors were ground and polished! The result is a seamless, beautifully polished clean floor with subtle imbedded colour chips, that's warm under the feet.

Gray floors ground the rest of the space and showcase more of the team’s experimentation. The floors look like terrazzo but are actually concrete floors inlaid with glass chips. The team at Novell poured a specifically engineered concrete topping mix onto each floor to encase the in-floor radiant heat. They let the floors cure a little before sprinkling in the glass chips, allowing the glass to sink in a little. The floors were then ground and polished. Originally they had wanted to put a few glass chips in here and there, but they decided to push the idea further and use more colors and sizes. Each floor has a slightly different color theme.
