Inside Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz’s Oceanside Mansion | Open Door | Architectural Digest

Today AD brings you to sunny La Jolla, California on the coast of the Pacific Ocean to tour the art-filled, modernist home of superstar couple Alicia Keys and Kasseem Dean (a.k.a. Swizz Beatz.) A stunning cliffside mansion by architectural designer Wallace E. Cunningham, Kasseem had the multi-level “Razor House” as his phone’s screen saver for 8 years, waiting for a day when the stars would align. Once he and his Grammy-award winning wife were able to make it their own, they set out with AD100 designer Kelly Behun to craft a home they now call their literal “Dreamland.” As for the results? “When your screen saver comes to life, it’s unbelievably crazy” says Dean.
