Drake is one of the most influential rappers of the decade, as you know through his impressive career, full of awards and transformational music. It’s rare to know the personal life of this rap star, but we have the exclusive of the star’s amazing new Manor House. Home and Decoration invites you on the most exclusive tour of the month, to be inspired by each amazing setting!
At Drake’s House in Toronto, every detail of the sprawling property has been meticulously conceived and executed. Measuring 50,000 square feet, with amenities such as an NBA regulation-size indoor basketball court crowned by a 21-square-foot pyramidal skylight, Drake’s astonishing domicile certainly qualifies as extravagant.
Rafauli describes the interiors as Modern Art Deco, again referencing a classic historical style that has been tweaked and rejuvenated to mirror the spirit of the times as well as the DNA of his high-profile client. Inside, ceilings climb up to 44-feet high and antique mirrors framed in bronze make up the vast ceilings and walls.
With more than 20,000 pieces of hand-cut Swarovski crystal, the dazzling light sculpture is the second largest installation of its kind in the world.
Other highlights include a marbled and all-white kitchen, surrounded by touches of color. There’s also a recording studio, a custom-made grand piano, an awards room which tells the story of Drake from his years on Degrassi: The Next Generation to his current days as a Grammy-winning artist. Drake’s house incredibly features an NBA regulation-size indoor basketball equipped with a 21-square-foot pyramidal skylight.
