Built in 1866-67, the Chappell Piano Factory is a magnificent Victorian industrial building, benefitting from retained period features, voluminous interiors, high ceilings and large sash windows.
Founded in 1811 Chappell & Co provided pianos for nobility, gentry and musicians with clients including Beethoven, Strauss and Sibelius. For over 100 years the factory crafted the world’s finest pianos, and during World War 2 produced canopies and propellers for the legendary Supermarine Spitfires, eventually closing in 1970.
It then became the Chalk Farm Photographic Studios, for artists, photographers and a models before undergoing a major refurbishment over the last three years to convert the building into smart offices with loft-apartments above.
Located on Belmont Street, off Chalk Farm road, in the heart of London’s vibrant Camden, Chappell Lofts is the conversion of the famous Victorian era Chappell Piano Factory into spacious three and four bedroom loft-apartments.
Set behind artistic steel gates the entrance foyer with manned concierge gives access to the Manhattan-style passenger lift and the steel cantilevered staircase crafted from over 3,000 bespoke pieces.
