Beastie Boy Mike D is designing houses now

While Ad Roc stays busy making music with Champagne Jerry and Bridget Everett, Beastie Boy Mike “D” Diamond is trading rhymes for blueprints. He’s crafty! You may remember the New York Times story last year on his townhouse in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn — where he lives with his wife Tamara Davis and their two kids — that he helped design with architects John and Jill Bouratoglou. It is something else. Curbed reports that Diamond enjoyed the creative experience so much he’s now offering his services to others. He and the Bouratoglous worked together on a new four-bedroom, four-bath single-family dwelling at 242 Pacific St with “a dramatic double height living room, custom built chef’s kitchen, as well as a finished recreation room with twelve foot ceilings and plenty of natural light.”
It’s also got a garage and can be yours for a mere $4.98 million. And a quick trip to The Bell House where his old pals Luscious Jackson are playing.
