Have you ever wondered how the house project of the mega recording artist Drake looks like? We are here to show you the 50,000 square feet extravagant mansion envisioned by the most well-known luxury architectural and interior designer: Ferris Rafauli.
This mansion is truly a marvel of craftsmanship, with a mix of limestone, bronze, exotic woods, and other noble materials. This project has been meticulously conceived and executed and Drake explained that this luxury design home was a special project for him since he was building it in his hometown.
His goal was to create a structure that would hold for 100 years while still maintaining the monumental scale and feel.
With its cues taken from the traditional Beaux-Arts architecture, the house has a modern Art Deco inspiration, referencing a classic historical style that has been tweaked and rejuvenated to Drake’s young cool spirit; worthy of being considered as one of the top residential projects of the year.
Drake wanted to have an overwhelming high luxury, and he managed to deliver that message through Rafauli‘s excellent approach of “once you’ve chosen a certain style, you can dance within that style”, within the size of the rooms and the type of materials used we can really see reflected the work Drake has put in over the years, just like how he wanted.
All of the bespoke furnishings of Drake’s Manor house were custom-designed by Rafauli with materials that range from dyed ostrich skin and mohair to Macassar and bronze. However, the interior design also features some of the top products from the world’s most famous luxury brands, including DelightFULL, Brabbu, Venice, Jonathan Browning Studios, Louis Vuitton, among others.
We can see what kind of masterpieces were put in this astonishing project by taking a look at the master bathroom, which features a Nero Marquina marble vanity and tub. Not only that but we can see custom furniture all over the place such as the chandelier by Lumifer, the Brabbu sconces, and a chair by Rafauli himself.
Last but not least, Drake also wanted to have an official NBA-size court, painted with details inspired by Drake’s lifestyle brand, October’s Very Own. In the end, when looking at the splendors of his Canadian palace.
I think the house shows that I have true faith in myself to take on this task when I was just 27 and see it through.Drake
