Everyone will get a sneak peak into what it is like to experience the BOSS life of business mogul Jay-Z.
That’s because Hov’s Roc Nation headquarters in Los Angeles will be on full display in the month of October’s issue of Architectural Digest.
The office designer Willo Perron, who has worked with Jay for 10 years on various projects, gives readers a walk-through of his space which has a number of themes and decorative styles.
“He’s given me lots of freedom to explore and develop concepts that I find intriguing,” Perron said of the luxury but not-too-flashy work base. “The only boundaries I had for the office were the number of desks and offices. Beyond that, they trusted us.”

The office focuses on neutral tones, while keeping things minimalist with technology being at the forefront, as Hov’s personal office has a Charlotte Perriand desk, Marcel Breuer lamp, and a Gio Ponti mirror.
“I didn’t want it to feel like a caricatured media or management office, with music blaring and video screens everywhere. I wasn’t interested in that kind of sensory overload,” Perron said. “I wanted to do the opposite, to create a zen environment conducive to ideas and conversation, a space where you can actually think.”
Jay-Z’s plush space also includes various art pieces that were created by Black artists, touching on emerging talents and greenery, with Perron saying the L.A. space is “less predictable” than the one in New York.
“This felt more experimental and more appropriate for L.A,” he said. “It’s all about the vanguard of culture.”
Besides the soon to be released magazine feature of JAY’s Los Angeles office, Jay-Z is also making headlines for his latest collaboration with Kanye West. The recently released song with the pair titled “Jail’” has hit the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 10.
