For most of Solange Knowles’ adult life, she has had the same loft; a quiet, serene oasis set above the 24-hour buzz of downtown Hollywood. The space is a mix of organic modernism, her own furniture designs, Black art, and vernacular objects she has collected over the years. It is the private residence of a nomadic life spent traveling around the world and making art.
Originally built in 1929 and converted to lofts in 2008 – the year Solange moved in – the Art Deco-style building at The Lofts at Hollywood & Vine is designated as historic under California’s Mills Act, which also offers the owner significant property-tax savings. A live/work building, it features secure entry, a 24/7 doorman, and valet parking.
Located at the corner of Hollywood and Vine, this two-story home exemplifies the best of urban style living in the heart of L.A’.s entertainment district. The gorgeous building on the Walk of Fame was converted into live/work lofts in 2007. The unit, recently featured in the autumn/winter issue of Apartamento, is the best of the Hollywood lifestyle close to dining, shopping, entertainment, and transit.
High ceilings and multiple tall windows let sunlight flood in while offering stunning city views. In true loft style, all flooring is polished concrete – ideal for any owner’s personal touch with rugs and runners.
The Japanese soaking tub completely immerses the bather in water up to their neck while sitting. Solange says she does most of her writing, conception, and ideation for performances and installations in the bathtub. High-end Viking appliances make the kitchen a chef’s delight.
The second-floor primary bedroom has views of the iconic Capitol Records building, which can be seen from the bedroom window. The home is close to the recording studios Solange enjoys in the San Fernando Valley and North Hollywood.
The common roof deck with a barbecue and lounge areas features sweeping views of Hollywood and the famous Hollywood Sign.
Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and visual artist Solange Knowles has used her platform to advocate for representation and justice while providing constructive and empowering messages. With the release of her critically acclaimed albums, “A Seat at the Table” and “When I Get Home,” Solange has invoked themes of identity, empowerment, grief, and healing that have resonated with millions of voices. This, coupled with her work in other artistic mediums, has led to a defining career of music, visual art, and activism.
Solange has conducted performance art shows across the globe, including at the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia (2019); The Getty Museum, Los Angeles (2019),; Guggenheim Museum in New York City (2017); the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas (2017); and the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, in Germany (2019). She has exhibited video art installations at London’s Tate Modern and premiered the interdisciplinary video and dance performance piece, “Metatronia,” which featured “Metatron’s Cube” (2018); a sculpture conceptualized and created by Solange, at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.
Solange released her debut album, “Solo Sta,”’ in 2002, bringing popularity to a new take on R&B that included urban contemporary elements. Proudly commanding her unique sound, she continued to explore the possibilities of straying from safe/radio-friendly jams by blending jazz, funk, electronica, and R&B/soul elements in “Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams,” released in 2008, followed by her “True” EP in 2012.
In 2016, Solange’s album “A Seat at the Table” debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, Apple Music, and iTunes Overall Top Albums Charts. The record’s success led to her performing for President Obama at the White House, as well as the “Orion’s Rise” performance series that included two sold out shows at Radio City Music Hall and shows at the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center, the Greek Theatre, and Orpheum Theater. Solange also performed the album to 4 sold-out shows at the legendary Sydney Opera House in Australia in June 2018.
In 2019, Solange released her album and interdisciplinary art film “When I Get Home.” The album was an exploration of origin. It asked the question “How much of ourselves do we bring with us vs. leave behind in our evolution?” Solange returned to Third Ward Houston to answer this. Written, performed, and executive-produced by Solange, the release resulted in her third Top 10 debut on the Billboard 200, hit No. 1 on iTunes, and kicked off a global tour. Solange premiered an extended director’s cut of her film at museums and contemporary institutions, including The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum, and V&A London.
Solange’s work in music and the arts has led to her being named Harvard University’s Artist of the Year in 2018. She was honored by The New School as a pioneering figure in fashion and the arts at the 70th Annual Parsons Benefit. She has also been the recipient of Glamour’s Woman of the Year Award and Billboard’s Impact Award.
