Battersea Power Station


EWS 101

Bespoke fully glazed structural silicone unitised façade consisting of glazed and spandrel windows and doors opening both inwards and outwards.

For the fanlight area, a specific fluid dynamic study was carried out to obtain the insertion of ventilation ducts called Whole-House Vent (WHV) which allow the exchange of recirculated air in the kitchens and bathrooms of the individual apartments. The finish of the aluminum frame is anodized dark bronze 25 microns, whilst all the external finishes are typically light bronze.

WilkinsonEyre are the architects of the major restoration and repurposing of the iconic Grade II* listed Battersea Power Station. The designs of new and restored features are consistent with and sympathetic to Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s masterpiece, with the four chimneys, massive brick outline and Turbine Halls remaining the dominant features of the building.

Retaining the Power Station’s sense of scale and visual drama is key to the project and is achieved through features such as full-height voids behind the southern and northern entrances, a vast central atrium and the Turbine Halls, rich in heritage features, which have become retail gallerias.

The architectural interventions respect the integrity of the historic landmark while creating new events spaces, shops, restaurants and cafés, large open-plan office spaces and a series of sky villas positioned around rooftop garden squares above the Boiler House and Turbine Halls.

Originally designed in the 1930s by the UK’s renowned architect, Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, Battersea Power Station provided one-fifth of London’s electricity, supplying some of the capital’s most recognisable landmarks including the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace, before being decommissioned in 1983.

It became one of the city’s best known industrial landmarks, featuring on the cover of Pink Floyd’s 1977 album Animals, on which it was photographed with the group’s inflatable pig floating between the chimneys.

The residential elements are a mixture of new build apartments and villas located on the roofs, and conversion units within the existing fabric. The accommodation occupies both Switch House West and Switch House East, on either side of the Power Station, as well as centrally on top of the Boiler House roof, framing an open landscaped garden square.Residents of the converted Switch House homes enter the building through landscaped piazzas at ground level, while the Boiler House villas are accessed via a glass lift between the structural girders of the former wash towers, the iconic chimneys visible above.

The properties have a variety of layouts and sizes depending on their location in the building, their design responding organically to this unique address. Battersea welcomed its first residents in May 2021.

Set across six floors within the upper Boiler House, the office space is attracting the cream of international creative tenants dedicated to new ways of working, open plan spaces and an industrial aesthetic. Apple are the largest tenant occupying more than 46,000m² across six floors.

An enormous atrium at the heart of the space, together with others at the north and south entrances, filters light to all office floors while allowing views of the chimneys above.
