    Love it. All it need is those things that soften it a little like area rugs, 3-D art, and other textiles.

    well done!

  • Susie

    It’s gorgeous! Adding colorful accents will give it a more homey feeling! I cant wait to go hang out with Kanye in his new pad. ;)

  • Jessie

    The “real” question is…..Where is the Kitchen?!?!?

  • http://mediatakeout CARISSA

    This apt will be different but beautiful if he use bold colors.

  • Kylene

    A splash of color here and there will make the place pop.

  • ASHLEIGH

    I dont get it??!!??

  • Tenneshia

    I hated it I think it has no homey feeling. I would have thought Mr.West would have BIG taste to go with that BIG ASS MOUTH.

  • elle

    Futuristic wouldn’t be far off.
    Quite clinical but it looks like him.
    I wonder what he’ll put in it to symbolize his personality even more.

    It makes me go “jane stop this crazy thing!” ~george jetsons..

  • Dominique

    I HATED IT NO HOMEY FEELING I CAN REALLY TELL HE LET MONEY GO TO HIS HEAD AND PROBABLY IS NEVER GOING TO SLEEP THERE BUT THAT’S HOW NI**AZ DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • diamond

    it has an eclectic feel to it, i like the concept but not the layout, im sure he’ll be paying @ least $49k

  • loot

    all it needs is an albino lion with a diamond collar. I’ve seen hospitals cosier than this place.

  • errrthangworkin

    Its look great for a style like Kanya West,not my type of crib.Too lady like,ya heard me….

  • errrthangworkin

    i think it looks great,do your thing Kanya West

  • Dork

    Seems to me a good ‘base’ to ad you own personal touch on.

    I don’t believe Kanye will keep it this, he will ad some art/ vintage furniture / a beautifull rug.

    But it definitly looks beter as all those horrible furnitured cribs on MTV.

  • Cream

    Come on every one its just the lay out! Mr. West hasnt probably even seen it yet himself.
    it will be pimp’d out im sure, give it time!!!

  • Dugan

    he’ll put lots of pictures of himself up

  • http://bloggernista.wordpress.com Bloggernista

    This is gorgeous! So much better than the ghetto fab places that so many rappers and athletes get. A little color to pimp the place up and it will be rocking.

  • moehandy

    stop hatin….he’s rich!!!!

    1 word. Class!

  • Maliksun

    I thought homes were to be lived in!! I hope he has slippers for those cold ass floors. Flossin and living, guess the lines between the two have been blurred.. Does designing an uncomfortable living space equate to class?? I don’t hate on Kanye, shit just needs to a little warmer.

  • FOKUZD1

    IN CASE ANYONE DIDN’T REALIZE……THOSE IMAGES ARE DIGITAL FROM A 3D DESIGN PROGRAM. NONE OF WHICH ARE IMAGES OF THE ACTUALL APARTMENT AND ITS CONTENTS. AND WHOEVER SAID THAT THIS WILL COST KANYE AT LEAST $49K KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT REAL ESTATE. TRY AT LEAST $1.9 MILLION.

    GET IT KANYE

  • DJ ECUA KID!

    FOKUZD1 IS RIGHT, THOSE ARE DEF DIGITAL IMAGES OF THE APARTMENT! BUT IT IS F*CKIN’ BEAUTIFUL JUST THE WAY IT IS! MINIMAL! PEACE AND LUV!

  • Joey

    WOW – this is too funny! I really dont’ understand the significance of this post! Kanye West’s apartment? Does Kanye wanna see my home and how I live? Yah that’s what I thought – neither do I ;)

    Not bad, but I could do better..!

  • http://myspace.com/gr3nade pleesedtomeetyou

    this is a sad mistake for a home i hope he didnt spend any more than 100 dollars for this design i would go crazy in this house. damn with all the bape camo he wears you would think his house would have some color in it. god damn.

  • http://missallfun.blogspot.com missallfun

    The design is minimal yet interesting. It is offensive. West has too much class, I commend him for keeping it stylosimple. I totally vibe off of what is going on here. this man is crazy busy, sensory overload 24-7. He needs a retreat where he can start fresh, a clean slate.

  • http://www.sfstation.com Justin outa Frisco

    thoughtfull, modern, avant guard and with crative space. its wonderful! cheers all around.

    This project by Claudio Silvestrin is not about adding, it’s about subtracting.

    And it’s about light, and space, and volume and organizing functions in the most direct way. There are subtleties here that arent’ apparent on the surface, which is why it is always exciting to see new work by Mr. Silvestrin.

  • chad

    I like the clean lines but the kitchen area looks out dated. On the whole its a great place!

  • http://www.nitzandesign.com Nitzan Tagansky

    Silvestrin has completely discarded the idea of the conventional kitchen as we know it today. Gone are the predictable stainless steel appliances, gone are the the conventional cabinets above and below. In fact the entire notion of a kitchen here has evolved into a”non kitchen”. It is almost invisible when not in use, but comes to life once you begin using it. It is precisely THIS kitchen that makes everything else out there look dated, and not the other way around.

  • the mann

    top class. i like it

  • http://www.sbtjuul.co.za batembuCALAZA

    It seems like Kanye is more than just good music and elegant clothes he understands and appreciates good architecture.Claudio Silvestrin designed his house in Carlifornia as well. This is timeless art,this apartment will still look good in 20 yrs time.

  • Carnem

    U guys r soooo jealous..I love it!:)

  • Carnem

    some of u guys anyways ha

    Kanye's preference for austere furniture must serve to highlight his Balenciaga collection or something

  • kriza

    It has no character at all. It looks to me like a fresher’s work …

  • michelletrudo

    This is the worst rendering I’ve ever seen.

  • Andrew Dreves

    Very John Pawson..

  • someone better

    Damn, even for 2007… this looks like a first year undergrad project.
