Sky Gardens Nine Elms is a residential and retail tower in Nine Elms, within the borough of Lambeth, London.

Its construction was part of a wider regeneration of the Nine Elms area of London. The building is 120 metres (390 ft) in height.

A History of Sky Gardens

Glass and greenery and inside, outside have long been intertwined throughout architectural history and Vauxhall Sky Gardens is a natural extension of the two within a modern interpretation. However local history may provide you with an insight into this context…

Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, which existed for over a century, were at once synonymous with decadence, playfulness and nature. Its garden’s attracting folk seeking amorous assignations amongst the secluded walkways and sunken ha-ha.

The gardens also had a number of resplendent follies including a room built by Sir Samuel Morland around 1667. “The inside all of looking-glass, and fountains very pleasant to behold, which is much visited by strangers: it stands in the middle of the garden, covered with Cornish slate, on the point of which he placed a Punchinello, very well carved, which held a dial.”

In more recent history, Vauxhall was the planned site in the 1960’s for the ‘crystal span’, a structure that was intended to become all at once; a three lane bridge over the Thames, a luxury hotel, the new ‘Tate’ and a series of roof gardens. The concept was hugely popular with the public but less so with a tightly budgeting government who hit a proverbial glass ceiling.

It is no surprise then that these whimsical and historical attributes have been woven into the very core of Vauxhall Sky Gardens. From the Rococo style entrance lobby to the three gardens that provide residents with a mix of open green space, secluded areas of shade and a place to relax and view London as if from a verdant, floral cloud.

The key difference is that Vauxhall Sky Gardens is exclusive, open only to those privileged few who invest. And if some people miss out? Such is life, they will at least still be green. Green with envy.

A landmark collection of private apartments with enclosed gardens high above the capital.

It is located amidst the Nine Elms district that includes the new American Embassy, The Netherlands Embassy, Battersea Power Station and the new Covent Garden Market. With fashionable Chelsea across the river and spectacular views extending towards Westminster, The City and Canary Wharf, Sky Gardens is a spectacular lifestyle.

Sky Gardens boasts an array of totally unique characteristics, though none more striking both inside and out than the communal gardens situated on the 8th and 35th floor designed by the award-winning Gillespies. These sublime, organic spaces are open exclusively to residents and their guests, for daytime relaxation, watching the sunset over the capital or after-dark entertainment.

Residents will benefit from 24hr concierge, private residents’ gymnasium and CCTV coverage to the external areas and apartments, fitted with hands-free video entrance system.
