New York City, New York, USA
Sensitile Terrazzo™ tiles and slabs are installed in the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) lobby. The tiles serve for the flooring and the slabs are stair treads.
Ronnette Riley Architects specified the shimmering concrete in black, which helps enhance the glow of the Terrazzo light terminals. As students and staff make their way down the steps to the lobby, the floor reacts to their every move. No internal lighting is necessary for this effect, which uses the available ambient lighting in the interior space.
