Stairs and Floors out of concrete are a real improvement
Terrazzo is an easy-care material. In its use and maintenance, it is much more robust than wooden floorboards or any other kind of flexible floor covering.
Sometimes, after having lived at a place for a quarter of a century, you will discover an old terrazzo floor beneath layers of synthetic carpeting, velvet carpets, or tiles. Congratulations! It only takes a few cosmetic measures to give it back its former shine. Traces of old glue are removed, and then the floor is renovated by means of a grinding and polishing process. Such terrazzo floors are real treasures. They can be much more valuable than floor coverings made of tiles or natural stone. If you combine a terrazzo floor with modern interior design, your home or shop will get an appealing, mediterranean flair.

The staircase of this villa in Hamburg is a fine example of possibilities to use elements of concrete made by material raum form in exterior spaces as well. It consists of exposed concrete, as do the large slabs paving the footpath, which each measure 1.5 x 1 m.

At the Staatliche Gewerbeschule Gastronomie und Ernährung (State Vocational School of Gastronomy and Nutrition), both the treads and raisers were adapted to the already existing terrazzo floor. Moreover, the terrazzo floor has been refurbished.
Thanks to concrete-bound materials, it has been possible to create seamless forms and surfaces since ancient times. A terrazzo-like floor fill made of polished lime as early as in 11,000 BC has been found at the site of Göbekli Tepe, which is situated in Turkey and predates the Pre-ceramic Neolithic period A.
