Brutalist Yeezy ‘ Think Tank’ Studio in Calabasas [LA]

The new Kanye West, YEEZY studio is a 14,390-square-foot retrofitted office building in Calabasas, conceived as a think tank, and includes offices, a sewing room for making samples, and a recording studio. The centerpiece is a large double-height volume, which serves as an atelier and event space. Its scale and design hint at its aspirations — there’s an oversized 30-foot-long sofa that could probably seat twice the whole Last Supper guest list. Long black-stained wood benches flank another set of functional worktables, and black pin-up boards stand sentry around the room. All furniture — bookshelves, tables, benches, and couches — was custom made by an Italian luxury retail builder according to West and creative director Willo Perron’s exacting specifications.
