The rapper opened the doors of his Toronto mansion, nicknamed The Embassy, in the April issue of Architectural summary – and it’s wilder than most could imagine.
“Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stay firm for 100 years,” Drake told the publication. “I wanted it to have a monumental scale and feel. It will be one of the things I leave behind, so it had to be timeless and strong. “
Made of limestone and enhanced with golden accents, the 50.00 square foot home is described as “Modern Art Deco” by architect and interior designer Ferris Rafauli. Drake added, “This is an extremely high luxury. This message is conveyed through the size of the rooms and the materials and details of the floors and ceilings. I wanted to make sure that people can see the work that I’ve done over the years from all perspectives. “
So what does all this hard work bring you?
The mansion has a 3,200 square foot master suite with a 4,000-pound tub and a two-story walk-in closet filled with Birkin bags.
“The bedroom is where I come to unwind from the world at the end of the night and where I open my eyes to capture the day,” said Drake. “The bed lets you float, the shower lets you get away from it all and collect your thoughts, and the closet makes you want to talk to yourself while you dress.” “
There is a full-size basketball court, a Grammy Awards trophy room, an indoor pool, a recording studio, a jersey room and a custom piano in the great room designed in collaboration with Takashi Murakami.
“I think the house shows that I really trust myself to take on this task when I was 27 years old and carry it out,” added the rapper. “I also think the house says that I will always remain strong in the place where I was born. “
