The Metalworks is an exclusive development in the east side of Clapham Old Town. The conversion will comprise twenty-four luxury loft apartments arranged over two to three storeys in an enclave surrounding a communal courtyard area.
The site boasts a heritage of notable cultural significance as the home of the famous ‘Art Metal Works’, where arts and crafts pioneer William Bainbridge Reynolds plied his craft. Reynolds can arguably be considered the most eminent metalworker of all time and famously created the Kitchener chapel gates at St. Paul’s Cathedral.
The courtyard is tastefully lit with architectural lighting, classic coach lamps and festoons hung above cobbled mews, providing the area with a sense of urban ambience.
The apartments have retained many of the site’s original features, including its elegant metal Juliet balconies, vaulted ceilings and ornate fenestrations. Bespoke ironmongery, exposed brickwork, conduit lighting and New York loft style features create a warm industrial feel throughout.
