Sometimes it's great to see how the other half lives. That's why Architectural Digest's Open Door series is such a winner with its online readers.

Anton Zaslavski, best known by his stage name Zedd, is a Russian-German record producer, DJ, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter.

During a recent Open Door episode, he welcomed viewers inside his $16-million mansion in Benedict Canyon, an area of Los Angeles.

The 9 500 square feet (about 880 square metres) property has views of the canyon and tons of full-length glass windows. 

According to Architectural Digest, the home is divided into three sections: work, living, and sleep, while the work section has Zedd's recording studio and an unfinished gym.

But most probably the best part of the house is the Skittles machine which dispenses any flavour you want. Another talking point is the hidden jacuzzi that guests can only see once the pool's water level drops.
