Concrete mosaic set into polished concrete floor.

This micro-brewery occupies the two story wedge shaped volume on the corner of the Olympic building, an earlier David Baker Architects project, in Berkeley California. Stainless steel brewing tanks coexist with works of local artists: a mosaic river, a steel snake that climbs the stair railing, and "flinstone" colored concrete tables on the second level trellised deck.
