Detroit’s star rapper Big Sean teamed with Architectural Design to give a special tour inside of his Beverly Hills Mansion which he bought four years ago.
The 7-bedroom Mediterranean estate features a music studio, soaring ceilings, and a resort-style backyard outfitted with a limestone swimming pool, heated spa, and a fireplace. Once owned by legendary Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, Sean purchased the property for $8.7 Million and undertook an extensive renovation in tandem with L.A.-based firm JSN Studio. A few spots remain just as Slash left them however, like the private nightclub with skull light fixtures.
Big Sean wanted a music workspace that also invited living. “To build the music studio, we basically had to build a room within a room,” says Wior. She adds that Sean wanted a music workspace that also invited living. So we added windows to allow natural light inside the studio, as well as seating with an area big enough to allow others inside to collaborate.”
“My last few albums have been produced in-home,” Sean revealed in the interview. He also notes that “when I look out to the left, I can see the building of my very first apartment from when I moved out of my mom’s house in Detroit.”
