8N Lofts, is a service-driven student living community located near the city’s Historic Haymarket District on 8th and N Streets. The lofts include a sky deck with a jumbo LED TV, fitness facility, outdoor climbing wall with firepit and seating areas, private courtyards and grilling stations to name a few amenities all along with a 4,200 square foot all-inclusive clubhouse.

Bomanite Licensee, Stephens and Smith Worked with CSO Architects and Hausmann Construction, on creating an outdoor entertaining space that was a perfect fit for the defined areas for using Bomanite decorative concrete for the defined areas.  Two separate courtyards were created with fields of different colors and textures. The courtyards serve as bike storage with a pergola and have multiple areas like sitting area around the fire pit, ping pong table, rock climbing, outdoor kitchen and a wood deck to enjoy the fresh air.

The Bomacron Herringbone Used Brick and Bomacron Running Bond Used Brick patterns were used with a circular design in the shape of the number eight.  Bomanite Color Hardeners in Coquina and Natural Gray with Bomanite Release Agents in Mexican Tile and French Gray complement the building colors and outside décor.

Bomanite Color Hardener provides increased durability, wear resistance and fade resistance, just what is needed for an outdoor entertainment space, student living complex.

Bomanite Licensee, Musselman & Hall installed 64,000 of concrete hardscapes during the construction of the arena. A small portion of their work involved The Moon’s Plaza. The project designer, Chris Doyle, created The Moons as the Percent-for-Art component of the Sprint Arena, in Kansas City, Missouri.
In front of the huge glass arena, Mr. Doyle created a plaza with three elliptical gardens, each with a water component. Hanging above each of the gardens is a moon, a circular LED video screen that shows individuals flying across the screen simulating orbiting the arena. Musselman & Hall, brought the surface to life resembling rock and sand textures with Bomanite’s Imprint and Exposed Aggregate Systems. A custom imprint pattern of random rocks was designed to achieve a look of natural stone once stamped and colored with Bomanite Black Color Hardener.

flow to the surroundings.

Bomanite Imprint Licensee, Stephens and Smith Construction worked with the homeowner to select the overall design, patterns and colors for their patio and pool deck renovation. The homeowners existing concrete and stoops had a spray texture overlay and stenciled brick borders in a pinwheel design. The owners had seen stamped concrete and were interested in changing their deck and giving it a fresh new look.

Stephens and Smith demolished the existing deck and was able to dispose of all the rubble on site, saving the homeowner in disposal fees. The demo did take a few extra days due to the uneven real brick that was discovered under the overlay. Once all was removed, Stephens and Smith was able to regrade and place the concrete in four pours that had to be transported 160’ to 200’ due to the length of the driveway and expansive 20 acre lot. The concrete was stamped with the Bomacron Slate Texture and Bomacron 8” Used Brick Border for an updated clean and inviting backyard space.
