Sobella- Las Vegas
Design Leader- EEK Architects
SoBella (South of Belagio) is an urban retail environment fronting “The Strip” in Las Vegas. It is the dynamic “city-within-a city” that offers the visitor a unique experience and the best Las Vegas has to offer in shopping, chic boutique hotels, and residential options. The City is composed of a series of distinct but seamlessly connected environments integrated with the circulation systems of Bellagio.
In the heart of sobella is a public square called City Space, it has a flexible and changeable program from day to night providing the visitor a variety of functions from shopping, spa and cafes during the day to bars and night clubs at night. The square is shaded by a dynamic shading structure that responds to the local climate.
SoBella’s blocks offer the diverse ingredients of an authentic urban neighborhood – galleries, cafes, boutiques, small parks, markets, boutique hotels and lofts – and a chic cosmopolitanism that pervades every street. An intricate web of passages creates a meandering experience of surprise and excitement. Part SoHo, part French Quarter, part medieval bazaar, SoBella becomes the place to live, work and play in the heart of Las Vegas.
