Kanye West’s new residence in Malibu was designed by Tadao Ando. The Californian beach villa purchased by the famous rapper and record producer has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, for a total of 370 square metres overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
The architecture, raised off the ground, is made of concrete surfaces (a material widely explored by the architect), resulting in a vaguely brutalist overall appearance.
Built in seven years, the mansion includes 12 pylons that reach 20 metres deep to prevent it from sinking.
West paid $57.3 million for his new home – a number that remains below the $75 million proposed in 2020, when the structure was put up for sale.
