Sarm Studios in Notting Hill have hosted some of the biggest names in music. Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, Queen, the Rolling Stones, Madonna, Robbie Williams and Rihanna are just some who have recorded inside the Basing Street building.
Originally owned by Island Records founder Chris Blackwell in the early Seventies, it was later acquired by producer Trevor Horn who has worked with superstars Tom Jones and Tina Turner. It is about to be transformed into nine luxury flats and office studios.
But the music legacy won’t be lost as two hi-tech studios, where artists can write and produce their work, will be housed on the lower-ground floor. This is the ideal spot for pop stars on the lookout for a central London pad.
