The Brassworks is a beautiful conversion of a former factory building in central London into a series of stunning apartments. Located in a quiet mews street close to Marble Arch and Hyde Park, The Brassworks offers spacious, high-quality residential accommodation in a prime location thanks to Belsize Architects, who brought their skill and imagination to a previously hidden gem.
Belsize Architects were anxious to create attractive, liveable spaces while respecting the original structure as much as possible, and worked with the building to give it a new life for contemporary residential use. Each loft-style apartment has been designed to the highest specification including custom-made kitchens and furniture, en-suite bathrooms and bespoke wardrobes in all bedrooms and high-specification flooring and other finishes. State-of-the art heating, cooling and AV technology has been used throughout the development, and the energy efficiency of the building has been maximised wherever possible.
Nevertheless, the heritage of the original building shines through: for example the bronze-effect windows and huge steel beams traversing each apartment are a reminder that the contemporary living spaces are contained within a building that remains full of history and character. Externally, the original facade has been restored, allowing the building to sit proudly once again within its conservation area setting.
