Venue Features
The Scene:
SmogShoppe’s spacious garden courtyard area is a peaceful respite and will be a welcome surprise to guests. It’s an oasis within Los Angeles, surrounded by garden walls filled with over 2,000 sq ft of greenery.

The Grand Hall - The Grand Hall area has soaring 15 foot ceilings and is equipped with DMX controlled, stage quality LED lighting.

 
Design:

SmogShoppe is one of the most sustainably designed urban spaces both in Los Angeles and in the United States. The space exceeds (in many cases by more than double!) nearly every requirement in every category for the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Certification (qualifying for up to 55 points of our 57). The impact from demolition and construction was minimized by using over 80% of the existing structure. 90% Green certified or salvaged and/or locally produced building materials were used. Salvaged metal and wood was scrapped from the demolition and recycled to make the furniture.

Only the most efficient heating/cooling and mechanical systems were incorporated along with enough solar panels to generate over 100% of annual electrical energy needs. A 10,000 gallon storm water management system, a 1,500 gallon rainwater tank, and over 2,000 sq ft of drought tolerant vertical gardens keep SmogShoppe water-wise. As a result, the space uses less energy than a typical 2 bedroom home. In addition, many of the vintage decorations and furnishings were found by scouring flea markets, vintage sites, and estate sales. These items have been repurposed and given them a new home at SmogShoppe. 

Strategically located over-sized courtyard doors and skylights provide passive lighting and also act as cooling and heating elements that not only improve the quality of being here, but also help minimize energy usage throughout the year by taking full advantage of the sunny, breezy Los Angelesclimate.

SmogShoppe encourages and supports green events and introduces clients to green planners, stylists and other resources. SmogShoppe also diligently recycles.

SmogShoppe’s multi-use nature lowers its environmental footprint - one building performing as three or more: production studio, gallery, private event space, garden wedding venue, etc.


 
Standout Venue Features:

Los Angeles’ SmogShoppe has a cinephile quality 20 ft digital cinema screen and 7.1 THX surround sound system ideal for film screenings, wrap parties, DJs and VJs.
