Redesign of the Battersea Power Station

BatterseaPowerStation1Thema: Urban conversion.
Beschreibung: Battersea Power Station has been envisaged as a complete place, that offers the fullest range of experiences to the people that live, work and visit there. The masterplan re-imagines the Power Station as a logical extension of the capital. It connects the riverside walk and Battersea Park with the green spaces of the Power Station. It delivers contemporary homes with shopping, workplaces, galleries, markets, restaurants and pedestrian streets and brings together everything a community needs to thrive, by night as much as by day. Through it all runs a core desire to preserve and showcase as much of the original Power Station as possible, and to pay homage to its heritage. So as well as creating dramatic new spaces within the building, the design also exposes its original fabric, letting the unique personality of this extraordinary structure speak for itself. The ambition for this development has been to create a vibrant and holistic new town centre where people come to live, work, socialise, enjoy the arts, explore the shops, experience the Power Station or simply stroll along the riverside walkway to the adjoining 200-acre Battersea Park. It will include high quality apartments which are currently under construction and are due for completion in 2016.
