The day has finally dawned. After several years of transformative work, one of London's outstanding landmarks, Battersea Power Station, is opening its doors to the public for the very first time.
The former coal-fired plant, now protected by a conservation order, has been brought back to life by London-based architects Wilkinson Eyre, while preserving its original character in a unique way.
The 186,000sqm complex is now home to a unique blend of shops, restaurants, entertainment venues, apartments, offices and event locations.
Protected “Heritage Windows”
Among the distinguishing features of the iconic coal-fired plant are its
eye-catching brick structure and four enormous chimneys. Its new external appearance is underlined by the “Heritage Windows”, whose 2,000 window elements reflect the 1930’s historic design. seele was also responsible for 264sqm of Juliet balconies and two panoramic windows providing views of the Thames. We were also involved with the implementation of the internal façades, including almost a dozen different types of façade.
This project was a real challenge and a fantastic experience for us.
We would like to thank all our partners for this unique project and congratulate all those involved on the occasion of its opening!
