Rusted metal and wired glass accents lend a steampunk feel to this London loft apartment – set within a former piano factory.
The two-bedroom Camden flat has wide, wood-panelled spaces, with factory-style windows, high beamed ceilings and exposed brick walls. Adding to its industrial palette are cast-iron radiators, pipe-like pendant lights, corroded metal doors and wired glass panels.
The home is part of Chappell Lofts, a converted Victorian factory once belonging to piano manufacturer Chappell & Co, whose clients included Beethoven, Strauss and Sibelius. It was used to make parts for Supermarine Spitfires during World War II and later became the Chalk Farm Photographic Studios.
A terrace, a Juliet balcony and a dark steel kitchen also feature in the 2,003 sq ft London property, which is on sale for £3.65 million with United Kingdom Sotheby’s International Realty.
