Recycled stained glass window shattered on new concrete floors

Great green designers love to re-use pieces from old buildings for new construction. Architectural firm, Aller Lingle Massey, had this vision when designing the new Lory Student Center on Colorado State University’s campus in Fort Collins. In the floor placed and polished by Colorado Hardscapes, shards of what once was a beautiful stained glass window are scattered on the new floor. To make this expansion, the existing wall with the stained glass window needed to come down, but to keep a piece of history, the designers created this imagery to give the impression that the old window shattered on this new floor.

Colorado Hardscapes installed this floor using the Bomanite Modena system, which also helped this building in its pursuit of LEED Certification due to it’s recycled content, material re-use and regional materials.
