Las Vegas, NV
This upscale, full service restaurant and bar is located on the edge of suburbia. As you approach the building, you are greeted by a blue cement plaster and metal clad exterior never seen before in Las Vegas. The angled, weathering steel clad west exterior with glowing blue skylights (at night) is the first thing to catch your attention as you exit the freeway. You immediately notice the inverted cone shaped space and dramatic entry canopy “supported” by angled columns with flames. The inverted cone is an outdoor patio centered around a central water and fire feature. This is adjacent to a secluded outdoor dining patio. Inside, the exterior elements create a sense of unity; the entry canopy extends into the restaurant and the angled exterior west wall creates an intimate dining experience along the west side of the restaurant as the roof forms follow the exterior lines.
