Architectural Elements: Resource reuse can be seen at the entry of Boa such as twigs and branches, and in the main dining with the used of driftwood as focal points. Low VOC paint was used on the painted wall surfaces as a low emitting material. Boa provides daylight and views from over 75 percent of occupied areas. Alternate transportation, the monorail, is located within a half a mile and Boa is a nonsmoking.
Description: Boa's overall space is broken up into smaller spaces with each seat providing a different experience to create a hip and diverse restaurant.

Sushi Roku is meant to have a warm but sophisticated feel. This starts as you decompress down the entry passage. Textures from the micro lam blocks on one wall and Japanese style wood blocks used throughout the restaurant continue the warm feel in the sushi bar dining area. The concrete and plaster of the bar4 area provides a contrast as you enter the main dining room. The main dining room with its raised ceiling is offset by large hanging elements to help keep an intimate feel. Views of Las Vegas Boulevard are clear from most tables to provide your eyes a place to expand.
