Need help figuring out a pattern

I would like to replicate this in my foyer. What is the best installation method? I am also not sure about what accents or borders are around the tile. Has anybody seen anything like this?

What is the material thickness? 3/8" is it glue down instalation? do you have the router equipment to tounge and groove the custom fabricated pieces?
Im not a wood guy but, the border has 32 identical field triangles (red) with 4 pairs of the inside corner (blue) and 4 pairs of the out side corner (black). I personally would prefab these parts first. Precut the mitered border stripes. lay out the floor to center the assembly. install the border, install the inset, install the outside wood to the walls and as a final install the traverteen and add finish.

The complexity here would require a complete layout underneath prior to starting.
This looks nice. Elaborate, however I have my doubts as to durability. With wood expanding and contracting, and different mat'ls expanding and contracting at different rates. The real possibility of complete disaster is high. But who doesn't love a good challenge.
Good Luck and keep us in the loop if you decide to try it
