What is Terrazzo?

Terrazzo is a type of surface material that is created by mixing marble, granite, quartz, or other types of aggregates with a binder, typically cement. The mixture is then poured, smoothed, and cured to create a solid, durable surface. Terrazzo is known for its distinctive appearance, which includes a smooth, polished finish with a speckled or mottled pattern created by the embedded aggregates.

The history of terrazzo dates back to ancient times, with examples of its use found in ancient Egyptian and Roman architecture. However, it gained significant popularity in the 20th century, particularly during the Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern periods, when it was often used in commercial buildings, airports, schools, and other public spaces.

Terrazzo offers several advantages, such as its durability, ease of maintenance, and versatility in terms of design and colour possibilities. It can be customized with various aggregate sizes, colours, and patterns to create unique and visually appealing surfaces. In recent years, terrazzo has experienced a resurgence in interior design and architecture, with modern adaptations and innovative applications in both residential and commercial spaces.
