The Ardit Company
Ohio University - University Center
Athens, Ohio
Ohio University is a private university in Athens, Ohio. The new Student Union is a 5 story building containing meeting rooms, a theater, a ballroom, servery & kitchen, and multi-purpose rooms. Terrazzo was used on the 1st floor main spaces, 4th floor main spaces, and on the 2nd and 3rd floor escalator lobbies. The free flowing design, along with the ease of maintenance, makes terrazzo the ideal flooring surface in these areas. The 4th floor rotunda area consists of an 8-pointed compass design with 4 globes in-between the main points. The globes show the Earth in 4 different orientations. Sprouting off of the rotunda are 2 parallel corridors directing traffic into the buildings. The first floor terrazzo is over 12,000 sq.ft. and flows from the main entrances into the servery areas. Larger borders following the columns are intersected by smaller borders placed on an angle to the building axis. Several curved architectural features separate the food service area from the main space. The main meeting area of the first floor is enhanced by the artwork. Each of the 12 panels are designed to replicate the work of artist Aminah Roninson.
