Today we take you on a journey through opulence and extravagance as we unveil the Woodvale Mansion—a residential masterpiece that is the epitome of luxury living. Awarded the prestigious Interior Design – Residential prize at the BLT Built Design Awards 2023, this architectural gem in the heart of Los Angeles, crafted by the visionary Dorothy Alon of Sophea Interior Design and Gispan Designs, is an integration of luxury, functionality, and elegance. Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the creative team transformed adversity into an opportunity, resulting in a residential mansion that radiates sophistication and grandeur.
The Woodvale project’s main goal was to create a property with a blend of modern luxury and cutting-edge functionality. Inspired by the desire to craft a residence that is both opulent and practical, Dorothy Alon and her team at Sophea Interior Design curated a space that exudes sophistication. The challenge of constructing a large-scale house during the pandemic led to ingenious solutions, resulting in the ultimate luxury living experience.
Amidst the restrictions of COVID-19, the creative team seized the opportunity to repurpose and transform spaces. Recognizing the need for in-house entertainment and well-being services, the mansion boasts a range of amenities. From a state-of-the-art gym to a lavish bar and a dedicated theater room, Woodvale caters to the diverse needs of its residents.
The interior spaces have been transformed into a spa oasis, featuring a full spa, steam and dry sauna, massage room, and a beauty salon complete with a hairdresser chair and station. The manicure/pedicure and glam room add a touch of indulgence, ensuring a complete pampering experience within the confines of the residence. A game room provides a space for recreation and relaxation, offering a retreat from the uncertainties of the outside world. Moreover, the 14-car garage in the basement has been ingeniously transformed into a dynamic party space. Adorned with interlaced LED ceiling paneling, mirrors, and a white porcelain floor, this area promises an unforgettable entertainment experience.
The Woodvale Mansion extends its luxury beyond its walls, featuring an outdoor kitchen and bar designed for the ultimate hosting experience. Surrounded by the allure of Los Angeles, residents can enjoy the perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living, making every moment a celebration.
