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.
