WilkinsonEyre, Michaelis Boyd (Interior Architects)Offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an apartment within a London landmark, the iconic Battersea Power Station is being re-born into one of Europe’s most exciting residential and leisure destinations.
At the heart of the 42-acre site, the Grade II* listed Power Station is being restored and repurposed into 254 apartments, from characterful studios to soaring four-bedroom duplexes, alongside over 100 shops, bars and restaurants, a cinema and chimney lift experience, offering unique heritage living within a 15-minute live, work, play neighbourhood. Divided across three phases - Switch House East, Switch House West and Boiler House - apartments within the Power Station are integrated within the existing structure, whilst three new glazed floors enhance Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s original design and deliver additional state-of-the-art residences. Blending new with old, many of the building’s original elements have been restored during the redevelopment, with the new residences featuring brick and steelwork from the 1930s and 1940s. Two interior design pallettes reflect the Power Station’s history, taking inspiration from the 1930s and 1950s respectively, when major elements of the Power Station were completed. Residents have access to three gardens across the Power Station, as well as pockets of greenery interspersed along the residential hallways which feature original engineering equipment. Residents will benefit immensely from the opening of the Power Station to the public from September, becoming a major leisure and retail destination. The recently launched Northern Line Extension also brings the development within 15 minutes of the West End and the City.
