The Orum Residence. Modern yet timeless. Opulent yet subtle. Sleek yet comforting. These all feel like contradictions until you step foot inside one of the most stunning properties in all of Los Angeles. The 18,800 square foot architectural masterpiece sits on 1.6 acres of property perched high above the famed Bel Air neighborhood. With views that span from downtown to the pacific ocean to the Getty Museum, there is no shortage of visual inspiration. Completed in 2018, the Orum Residence has solidified itself amongst some of the most celebrated homes in LA. Winning countless awards for design and being featured in over 35 publications. The house was built by Dang Bodiratnangkura, with every aspect, including furnishings, being overseen by the renowned developer. The house can best be described in her own words.

“Orum is a story of how I see life and how I infuse my personality into it. Inspired and captivated by the prestige and beauty of Bel Air, I wanted to create a unique architectural silhouette that is bold and strong yet unassuming, warm and lasting. Orum is filled with love, vibrant energy, intricately detailed designs and functional flows. The three wings, married by a floating triangular staircase, signify my belief in connectedness, that every personal connection has its meaning. Life is a learning curve, and with Orum I have delivered my personal manifesto. Today, Orum is synonymous with elegance, sophisticated luxury, functional comfort and livable refinement. I am forever grateful to have the opportunity to undertake and experience the magnitude of this project.”

The nine bedroom estate is currently listed with The Agency at $56,000,000. The AIA award-winning masterpiece is more resort than single family home with gym, sauna, massage room, theater and 1000 bottle wine room. Designed by Famed Architect Zoltan Pali, the three story modern masterpiece took four years to construct.

During that time, Dang was involved in every aspect of the house. Going through the initial design studies with different shapes, her first priority was to “honor the land” and let the land dictate the shape and form. She traveled to Switzerland and China to chose the glazing along with every stone and tile used throughout. Dang also decorated and furnished the house herself as well as overseeing the landscape and lighting design.  Property development is her passion and she builds every home as if she is going to live there. Originally from Thailand Dang has made West Hollywood her home for the last 15 years.
