Located just next to the Santa Cruz harbor, this lovely home is the result of tedious and masterful decorative concrete work.
The Tom Ralston Concrete team was responsible for making this dream home a reality. Directly in the middle of the home there is a massive column with inset anchors that support a spiralling staircase. TRC molded and poured the 30 inch solid concrete column which spans all three stories of the home.
Marilyn Crenshaw, a.k.a The Green Architect designed the railing that caps off this functional and beautiful set of stairs. The railing is made of stainless steel, and is reminiscent of something you would find on a boat down in the harbor.
The different levels of the home have different blends of color hardeners - colors like oyster shell and golden sandstone. One level of the concrete floor was hit with an acid wash, followed by an antique amber acid stain - beautiful colors that exist naturally along this idyllic coastal California setting.
