At the heart of the 42-acre development lies the Grade II* listed Power Station. Restoring and reworking such a complex building for a wide range of future uses is both a challenge of some scale and a huge opportunity.
Here, at the nucleus of a flourishing urban village, homeowners will have more than a place to live. They will have an entire new world to explore.
This world has been imagined and planned with the same ambition and attention to detail that Sir Gilbert Scott brought to the original Power Station. It will be a place rooted in the public realm, where the architecture itself conspires to create chance meetings, favourite corners, treasured views and local pride.
The masterplan re-imagines the Power Station as a logical extension of the capital. It connects the riverside walk and Battersea Park with the green spaces of the Power Station. It delivers contemporary homes with shopping, workplaces, galleries, markets, restaurants and pedestrian streets and brings together everything a community needs to thrive, by night as much as by day.
Through it all runs a core desire to preserve and showcase as much of the original Power Station as possible, and to pay homage to its heritage. So as well as creating dramatic new spaces within the building, the design also exposes its original fabric, letting the unique personality of this extraordinary structure speak for itself.
