Love him or hate him, there’s no denying the cultural impact Kanye West has had. From an up and coming Chicago rapper to a giant in the fashion world, the self-proclaimed Louis Vuitton Don is a singular individual no matter which way you slice it. And his enigmatic nature is just as evident in the space where he works – the Yeezy Studio in Calabasas, California.
Glancing at the building, inside or out, you’d forget you’re just a few miles from Malibu, as the bauhaus brutalist architecture and design looks more like something out of 1984 – which, according to Kanye, is kind of the point. This 14,390 square-foot workshop is the ideal place for a mind like West’s to reconfigure fashion, music, and culture as we know it. From the angular monochromatic furniture, to the nigh-empty design rooms, to the in-house recording studio, this space is Yeezy through and through.
