The first images of “The Power House” – Battersea Power Station’s central show apartment in the Power Station itself – have been released.
The “bold” glass structure has been bolted on to the eastern flank of the Power Station, and has some fairly smashing views of chimneys, the river and across London. It’s designed to show-off what a two-bedroom apartment with decking and riverside balcony might look like in the finished Phase Two development building.
There are two distinct styles on view, representing the two stages that the original power station building was built: Heritage ’33 is “a look inspired by the aura and warmth of detail from the original 1933 build” and Heritage ’47 is “inspired by the architectural crispness of the forties.”
The Power House show apartment was created to tie in with the launch of Phase Two’s 254 units in the Power Station itself. Most of the units have already been spoken for, although there are a few left starting from £980,000.
Tim Boyd and Alex Michaelis, founding directors of interior design firm Michaelis Boyd: “It has been an incredibly exciting process so far and very refreshing to work with a team who want to challenge the traditional development model and look at new ways of design.”
Christy Hayes, Managing Director of Donban Contracting UK & Vision Modular Systems: “This was one of the most challenging builds we have worked on in some time but one of the most rewarding. Even when the team was encountering the challenges of the project, the view once you reached the Power House and the client participation gave us fresh desire and the determination to complete the project ahead of schedule and the end result in the quality is a testament to all those involved.”
Rob Tincknell, Chief Executive Officer of Battersea Power Station Development Company: “Building such an incredible space in such a short period has been an exciting process for the whole team. Being able to bring our plans to life was the priority and the result has exceeded our expectations. Being at this height overlooking the chimneys unlocks a whole new perspective on London.”
