When he's not hanging out with his wife and five kids or filming episodes of Brooklyn Nine Nine, you will likely find actor and NFL player turned furniture designer Terry Crews tapping into his creative side at his downtown Los Angeles loft. While the apartment is not Terry Crews's primary residence, the space—which he describes as his "fortress of solitude"—is his artistic escape.
"I come here and it seems to be so much quieter, being above the city," he tells us. The loft is where Cruz, who launched a contemporary furniture collection earlier this year with Bernhardt Design, called Amen & Amen, goes to get inspired. So, it makes sense that he has surrounded himself with art that speaks to him (including pieces by Shepard Fairey and Eric Skotnes), career memorabilia (from his Lip Sync Battle championship belt to a blueprint of his first sofa design), and a library of books on art, design, and fashion.
The killer views don't hurt either. "I'm a big view guy," he says, as he rolls up the window shades revealing a panoramic vista. "There's even a sign out there that says 'Jesus saves.' You feel like you're in heaven." See the space for yourself below.
