Taking part in Architectural Digest‘s Open Door series, J Balvin recently offered a look at his distinct Japanese design-inspired mansion.

Opening the doors to his Colombian home, the reggaeton superstar reveals his love for minimalist design. Contrasting his bright artist persona, the massive house was designed by Medellín-based design firm 5 Sólidos and was constructed from a gutted existed structure.

Reimagining the space as a serene, understated pavilion, the entire home features a mix of sleek black elements, planes of French oak and shoji-like framed linen doors and screens. Sliding doors and skylights provide sequestered yet open feel to the home decorated with pared-down modern furnishings. Balvin notes that he doesn’t place anything from his career in the mansion and refrains from putting art up as he believes the home is art itself.

The artist also notes he likes to enjoy his space, opting to sleep in different rooms to make the most of the house. While showing his master bedroom, Balvin revealed his impressive closet filled with about 850 pairs of sneakers which offers a look into his admiration of color.

Located in Llano Grande, Antioquia, the home is surrounded by greenery and features a massive porch area complete with a warmed pool. Surrounding the outdoor activity area are bonsai trees imported from Japan that are aged 50 and 100 years old respectively.
