SmogShoppe - Event Space Overview

Once a 1980s smog-check center, SmogShoppe is now a 100% solar-powered, private 6,500 square foot indoor/outdoor haven for desert plants, vertical gardens and chic vintage furnishings. A catering kitchen build-out is also available upon request. The combined interior and exterior areas allow for quintessential California entertaining and the generous floor plan can accommodate up to 175 person garden ceremonies, 175 person formal sit down dinners, 250 person cocktail parties, and 100 person film screenings. Experienced, professional site management through TACT Event Management is offered. SmogShoppe is conveniently located at the heart of the Culver City art/design district, we are located off the 10 freeway and are just minutes to Santa Monica, LAX, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Downtown Los Angeles.

The Greenest...SmogShoppe is one of the most sustainably designed urban spaces 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). We limited the impact from demolition and construction by using over 80% of the existing structure and then used over 90% Green certified or salvaged and/or locally produced building materials. Salvaged metal and wood was scrapped from the demolition and recycled to make our furniture.

Only the most efficient heating/cooling and mechanical systems were incorporated along with enough solar panels to generate over 100% of our 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 us water-wise. As a result, it uses less energy than a typical 2 bedroom home.

Strategically located over-sized courtyard doors and skylights are passive lighting, 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 our sunny, breezy southern California climate.

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

SmogShoppe’s multi-use nature lowers it’s environmental footprint - one building performing as three or more: production studio, gallery event space, community center, etc.
