What the Smith’s call home, I call a mega-mansion + the Jersey Shore house (15 photos)


Will and Jada Pinkett Smith opened up their massive 25,000 square foot home in Calabassas, CA for a cover spread in the upcoming issue of Architectural Digest.

Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, grace the cover of AD’s September issue, sharing with us their family’s highly personal retreat near Calabasas, California. The feature—which focuses on the home’s sophisticated common spaces as well as the children’s bright bedrooms—represents the first time the talented clan has been photographed together as a group.

The Smith home, designed by architect Stephen Samuelson, includes innumerable handcrafted elements to ensure a feeling of intimacy and love in the 25,000-square-foot house. And Will reveals that the idea behind the residence’s fascinating circuitous floor plan was “no dead ends…to create an infinite cycle that represented what Jada and I hoped for our love.”

The design of the home is anchored by “various interpretations of adobe in Persian, Moroccan, Spanish, as well as Southwest American cultures,” says Samuelson. The property has an undeniable spiritual quality, exemplified by Jada’s meditation room. “For Will and me this home was always a spiritual endeavor…we’re very earthy, organic people. We wanted to create a family retreat, something made by hand and as natural as possible, something that ties back to the land,” she explains. “Whatever it becomes, the craftsmanship will always represent our union and the love of our family.” -source

    fair play, the place actually looks like it has some character. I mean, it's ridiculously big, but if you looked into your heart, you would LOVE to live there! so much better than most places.
