New images of Foster and Gehry's Battersea flats revealed

  • Comment

New visuals have been released of the proposed new homes at Battersea Power Station designed by Foster + Partners and Frank Gehry

The apartments, which start at £495,000 for a studio apartment and top £3.2million for a four-bedroom flat, will form the third phase in the redevelopment of the grade II*-listed power station.  

According to Foster + Partners, its block has been ‘cut out’ to give views to the power station which ‘create interesting spaces and three-storey-high gardens on the upper floors’ of the apartments.

The homes are said to have been ‘styled in the 1930s theme’ of the Giles Gilbert Scott landmark.

For his interiors Gehry was ‘infuenced strongly by Japan in particular with the idea of layering of walls and sliding panels’.

Due to its irregular façade no two apartments in the Gehry-designed building are the same.

The 1,300-home scheme marks the third phase of the £8billion overhaul of the iconic grade II*-listed structure overlooking the Thames.

Sitting behind the power station, the residential-led proposals are being billed as London’s first new high street for more than 100 years and are part of Rafael Viñoly’s wider 3,400-home masterplan for the site.

This phase of the development also includes 103 affordable homes, a doctor’s surgery, a gym, a 167-room hotel, and retail at ground level, lining the newly-formed high street.

The scheme follows on from the 800-flat first phase development, designed by dRMM and Ian Simpson and which started on site last summer. Wilkinson Eyre and Purcell were selected to take forward the second phase, which included the refurbishment of the main power station structure.
