The Las Vegas Sands Corporation retained NOVUS Architecture to design a new Malibu, California themed poolside restaurant on the pool deck at the Venetian Las Vegas.  The existing kitchen will be outfitted with new equipment while part of the space will be demolished to become a new 15-seat outdoor bar.  A total of 88 seats will be provided under a large powder coated tube steel canopy that will provide shade to patrons throughout the day.  Raised planters and elevated daybeds are used to separate the pool area from the restaurant.  The “natural chic” Malibu vibe is comfortable and colorful with both natural and elegant finishes and modern lines.  Eight Haiku ceiling fans from the Big Ass Fan Co. are suspended from the steel trellis to provide constant airflow during the hot summer days.  Finishes include en caustic floor tile, mosaic tile column wraps, natural stone wall cladding, colorful draperies and jute rope accents.  The project is under construction and will be completed by April 2020.
