The ‘Atelier’ (studio) at 14 Kidderpore Avenue, Hampstead was designed and built in 1901 by the artist George Hillyard Swinstead for his family and as his art studio, and is a fine example of English Arts & Crafts design. After the Second World War, the house was purchased by Professor Harold Craxton O.B.E (Royal Academy of Music), an eminent and much-loved pianist and teacher, who lectured, taught and entertained at the house. As a result, the house became a focal point for music and the artistic milieu in London.

Among the many who came to visit were: Larry Adler, Dame Peggy Ashcroft, Sir Frederick Ashton, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Winifred Atwell, Dame Janet Baker, Sir John Barbirolli, Sir Lennox Berkeley, Sir John Betjeman, Pierre Boulez, Julian Bream, Denis Brain, Benjamin Britten, Lord Kenneth Clarke, Johnny Dankworth, Sir Peter Maxwell Davis, Alfred Deller, Dietrich Fischer-Diskau, Kirsten Flagstad, Dame Margot Fonteyn, Lucien Freud, Leon Goossens, Gerard Hoffnung, Howard Keel, Cleo Laine, Witold Lutoslawski, Gian Carlo Menotti, Sir Yehudi Menuhin, Sir Henry Moore, Peter Pears, Mstislav Rostropovich, Elizabeth Schwarzkopf, Stephen Spender and Graham Sutherland, to name but a few!
