Villa Vice —
Shane Smith’s home in Santa Monica, USA, WSJ Magazine
Known as Villa Ruchello, the Santa Monica compound is now home to Shane Smith, maverick co-founder and CEO of Vice Media, the influential and international multimedia company. Set amongst palm trees and formal gardens, the vast 1930s property is befitting of both a family man and media tycoon. Shot as the cover story for WSJ Magazine’s September 2016 Men’s Style issue, Smith’s warmth and strong character shine through, as do the lush velvets and vibrant tiles inside.
