Do you like luxury? So does Drake.
Architectural Digest features Drizzy's lavish Toronto mansion in its May 2020 issue and online feature released on Wednesday, days after the rapper gave fans a virtual tour of his crib in his new music video "Tootsie Slide."
Dubbed the Embassy, the more than 50,000-foot Art Deco-style home features a recording studio, an NBA regulation-size indoor basketball court, a 21-square-foot pyramidal skylight, an indoor swimming pool and a special room just for the rapper's awards. The entrance hall contains two Kaws sculptures aligning the sides of the black and white Nero Marquina marble floor. It also features a custom bronze and marble Ferris Rafauli chandelier.
"Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years," Drake told the outlet. "I wanted it to have a monumental scale and feel," Drake says of his passion project. "It will be one of the things I leave behind, so it had to be timeless and strong."
A 44-foot-tall great room includes a bespoke Bösendorfer concert grand piano designed by Rafauli and Takashi Murakami. The home also contains a suspended cantilevered block marble stairway adorned with chandeliers by Rafauli.
