[First look + plans] Scott Brownrigg has revealed these images of its project to redevelop Marco Polo House in Battersea, south London
Expected to be submitted for planning in the coming months, the 451 apartment project features 1,400m² of office space and 202 parking spaces.
Replacing the 1987 ‘Marco Polo House’ – which was designed by surveyor and well-known naturalist Ian Pollard – the scheme erects two twelve-storey mixed-use buildings on the 1.3 hectare site.
Scott Brownrigg’s design also includes a public street and new pedestrian footpath linking nearby Battersea Park with Battersea Power Station which has been masterplanned for redevelopment by Rafael Viñoly.
As many as 10 per cent of the new homes will have disabled access while the entire project aims to attain level 4 in the code for sustainable homes.
