“The Beautiful Face of Concrete: Using Precast Tile, Pavers, and Wall Veneer for Historic Restoration and Renovation” (AIA 1.0 LU/HSW/SD credit)
The course explores how concrete tile, pavers, and wall veneer are employed for restoration and renovation of buildings and infrastructure. The design and manufacturing process is detailed to better understand the wide range of design options. Case studies demonstrate how concrete tile, pavers, and wall veneer can preserve the cultural heritage of architecturally significant buildings and places while contributing toward sustainability and LEED certification.
Since 1966, ARTO has designed and handcrafted concrete tile, pavers, brick veneer, wall panels, hardscape products, and architectural elements in Los Angeles, CA. We offer rustic & modern styles plus we specialize in custom fabrication, color matching, and historic restoration. Our Western Quarry Tile division has been handcrafting glazed and unglazed terracotta products for over 30 years. The ARTO Tile Studio offers handpainted tiles and murals from classic designs to custom images and logos.
ARTO products can contribute to LEED certification in a variety of ways as we are locally manufactured with locally sourced raw materials plus we can incorporate a wide range of recycled content. We also offer 12 colors certified to reduce the heat island effect plus permeable and pervious pavers to minimize runoff and water pollution. Notable projects include Terranea Resort (spa pool & restaurant), Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, City of San Clemente and LA City Hall (historic restoration), Mariachi Plaza subway station (custom canopy panels), and the Port of Los Angeles Cruise Ship Terminal (custom ballast blocks for 1.2 MW photovoltaic system).
