Architectural Elements: Sustainability aspects of Sushi Roku such as material reuse are found at the sushi bar with the use of salvaged walnut for the counter top. Bamboo flooring is used throughout the dining area, which is a rapidly renewable material. Low emitting materials, low VOC paint, was used for painted wall surfaces. Daylight and views are provided from over 75% of occupied space. Sushi Roku is located within % mile of the monorail to provide alternate transportation options and is also a non-smoking restaurant.
Description: To create a restaurant with Japanese influence with a sophisticated feel.

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.
