Concrete House Featuring Decorative Concrete Work

The kitchen center island concrete countertop is shown in the foreground with one of the concrete shear walls in the background.

The 3-in.-thick concrete floor is placed over radiant heating coils. After stamping textures in the fresh concrete, workers troweled the floor, removing half the impressions.

The 1/2-in.-thick precast wall panels were made in a shop setting. Steel bulkheads were placed on top of a large texture mat to vary panel sizes.

Completed wall panels were cast for particular locations. Panel edges added to the design.

Patterned precast panels that change with the angle of view and lighting conditions were attached to a shear-wall. The only support for the steps is their anchorage to the concrete wall.

This shower was made with precast, colored concrete with no attempt to control bug holes. Other showers in the home were made with cast-in-place overlay concrete.

The biplane image in a bedroom door panel was achieved by gluing recycled glass into the mold and diamond polished afterward. Room light reflects through the glass to light up the biplane.
