The Battersea Power Station has dominated the London skyline since the 1930s. The coal fired power station was designed by one of Britain’s great modern architects Sir Giles Gilbert Scott.
It was decommissioned in 1983, when the UK shifted to cleaner technologies of oil, gas and nuclear power for electricity generation. It continued to make cultural appearance in movies and music, growing in affection in the hearts of Londoners. Having lain derelict for three decades, the iconic landmark has now found a new life. The development of the iconic landmark will permanently alter the shape and focus of Central London.
Battersea Power Station’s incredible rebirth will see it transformed into one of the most exciting and innovative mixed-use neighborhoods in the world, comprising unique homes designed by internationally renowned architects, set amidst the best shops, restaurants, offices, green space, and spaces for the arts.
A Masterful Plan:
The 42 acre masterplan, delivered by globally respected architect, Rafael Viñoly, creates a series of villages, with each intended to have its own distinct character. Together they deliver a fully functioning city district, a global destination.
The Effisus Ecofacade Envelope Systems is being applied at this iconic project in order to assure the most efficient façade weathertight system.
