How To Do An Art-Filled Modernist Home Like Alicia Keys And Swizz Beatz's Cali Pad

Alicia Keys and Kaseem “Swizz Beatz” Dean just opened up the doors of their coveted Razor Home in Cali to Architectural Digest, and as expected, it’s incredible.
Filled with statement art from paintings by Toyin Ojih Odutola, to Gordon Parks photographs (which they have the largest private collection of in the country) and a bevy of African masks and pieces, the home is a modernist “dreamland.” After having his eyes on Wallace E. Cunningham’s architectural wonder for years, even making an image of it his screensaver, Swizz got lucky when the home, which is said to have inspired Tony Stark’s mansion in Ironman, went on sale. The couple purchased the home in La Jolla in 2019 and have since worked with designer Kelly Behun to make the 11,000 square-foot property their own, filled with their tastes and important details from their life (like the grand piano Keys was given when she signed to Columbia Records at 16).
The home is fantastic, with its views of the Pacific Ocean and its design, which Cunningham tells AD is “a sculpture. “These beautiful S shapes, these chevrons going down the hillside, curvatures flying in space over your head. It’s more akin to sculpture than architecture.”
