The interior of the 255 residential apartments at Battersea Power Station

The refurbishment of Battersea Power Station includes 255 apartments in a multi-use development of offices, leisure and retail, contained within the existing industrial fabric.

Due to the nature of the existing building there are 109 different typologies from studios to large 4 bedroom penthouses nestled between the chimneys to the north and south.

We have drawn on our portfolio of existing work to produce an overall vision for the residential units. We are accustomed to the challenges of reinvigorating existing historical buildings, and are committed to creating an industrial aesthetic with a refined luxury feel worthy of the original architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott.

The apartments are designed with two concepts in mind: Heritage’33 - a look inspired by the warmth of detail from the first phase of the Power Station (1933) and Heritage’47 - inspired by the architectural crispness of the forties and the second phase of the development (1947). Future inhabitants will have the unique experience of being enveloped in a living monument to the past.
