These photos made me want to install a concrete floor at my place immediately (sigh). The Transparent House team in San Francisco managed to come up with an ingenious way of making an otherwise mundane material into something incredible.
While it does not take away from the simplicity of the floor, it embellishes it with a unique style and flair, giving it a softness not associated with concrete.
the process can be applied either during the pouring of the floor or after it. The polishing gives the final effect.
I would love to see this continue over to one of the walls - the effect would be striking.
