Battersea Power Station

March 24, 2020In Blog, Lifestyle

Battersea Power Station is another district in London that is a reference of the city’s modernity.

It is part of London’s history. At its peak, it was supplying a fifth of London’s electricity. After decades of sitting derelict, it is now being redeveloped into a new destination for London.

The new residential area has an architectural piece around every corner. From Foster + Partners‘ Battersea Roof Gardens to Gehry Partners’ masterful Battersea Prospect Place. At the heart of it all, Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s Power Station stands proud, restored and re-energized by WilkinsonEyre Architects.

Phase 3, Inspired by London’s typical regency style, has a facade that has been designed to take full advantage of the the buildings’ brightness, thanks to the special undulating shape created by the protruding and receding volumes of winter gardens and terraces.

Gehry Partners has designed five buildings to the east of The Electric Boulevard, to be known as Prospect Place. These will house double-height retail units at street level, around half of the planned homes, a community park and multi-use community hub. Gehry’s designed element will be anchored by the distinctive Flower building.

It’s the first time acclaimed architects Gehry Partners have designed residential spaces in London, and they have surpassed themselves. All buildings have access to a private garden, much like a traditional London square. Each home has its own winter garden or terrace too. Gehry Partners has designed two palettes for the interiors of Prospect Place, playing to the diversity that makes London such a special place to live. There’s LA, for adventure and excitement; and London, for a focus on history and architecture.

“Our goal from the start has been to create a neighbourhood that connects into the historic fabric of the city of London, but one that has its own identity and integrity.”
Frank Gehry

Battersea Power Station is soon to be connected with a new Zone 1 Northern Line Underground Station which will be connected to all the major routes across London including Crossrail, offering easy access to major transport hubs and airports. We can’t forget the Thames Clippers River Bus, carrying passengers along the Thames to the west towards Putney and to the east towards the City.
