- Project Profile
Nestled in the beautiful district of Houston’s Rice Village is Hungry’s Café, a restaurant serving a diverse array of international cuisines.
Designed by architect Jim Herd at Collaborative Projects our MACoat Custom was specified for the 1500 square foot upstairs bar and lounge. Surrounded by oak trees, this new outdoor space brought an airiness to the 40-year-old restaurant.
Westcoat QCA, Custom Concrete Coatings were the applicators on this fast track project. The restaurant continued to operate in its original space while this new building was being built right next door.
With the existing building scheduled to be demolished to provide parking, the schedule to complete the deck was tight. Custom Concrete Coatings was up to the challenge.
The space is an elevated concrete cantilevered terrace which serves as an outdoor dining space for Hungry’s Café. The MACoat Custom system was specified to provide waterproofing to the deck and have a decorative finish.
The concrete was prepped by grinding and then primed with EC-11 Epoxy Primer followed by the waterproofing components of the MACoat system including WP-47 Fiberlath, TC-1 Base Coat cement and WP-90 Waterproofing Membrane.
For the decorative aspect, TC-2 Smooth Texture slurry coat with TC-40 Liquid Colorant in Smoke was troweled down as a base then again in a skip trowel texture. The surface was then sealed with SC-65 Water-Based Polyurethane Sealer which included an CA-31 Safe Grip broadcast for slip resistance.
