The rolling, sweeping form of Battersea Roof Gardens cuts an elegant figure through the regenerated Battersea Power Station district. Designed by the highly regarded architectural firm Foster + Partners, these high-end condominium residences form part of a thrilling new neighborhood, thronging with new parks, restaurants, and sculptural works of art. The residences also house many of Battersea’s on-site facilities, including a wealth of lounges, bars, and dining areas. As the name suggests, the crowning glory of Battersea Roof Gardens is a sky-high oasis from which residents are gifted panoramas of the London skyline, as well as an up-close encounter with the power station’s seminal smokestacks.
Developed By Battersea Power Station Development Company
Using as its muse the meandering Thames, Battersea Roof Gardens is a gorgeously fluid design, spiritedly flowing in tandem with Electric Boulevard below toward the industrial behemoth of Battersea Power Station. Floor-to-ceiling glass adds to the translucent, riverine nature of these Foster + Partners condominiums, simultaneously allowing residents the full benefit of natural light, plus some astonishing views. Vistas of the power station, the river, and London at large can further be enjoyed from private winter gardens, gifted to almost every single residence, while some also benefit from alfresco terraces.
In the past few years, the neighborhood around Battersea Power Station has seen sweeping regeneration, evolving into an exquisite entertainment district on the southern bank of the Thames. It is replete with riverside bars and eateries, a brewery, a nine-acre riverside park, and a cinema set under the Victorian rail arches—not to mention a slew of new luxury residences. At the heart of it all is the iconic power station itself, designed in the 1930s by Giles Gilbert Scott and now reawakened as a high-end shopping mall inhabited by luxe brands like Ralph Lauren, TAG Heuer, and Boss. Two freshly opening London Underground stations—Battersea Power Station and Nine Elms—ensure the neighborhood is connected with the rest of London, while on-site gardens and nearby sprawling Battersea Park, with its boating lake and Pump House Gallery, offer tranquility in spades.
Foster + Partners has designed the interiors of Battersea Roof Gardens’ 436 residences to reiterate the condominiums’ contemporary, free-flowing exterior. Cool, open-aspect living spaces make the most of the floor-to-ceiling glass, reflecting the natural light and appealing to residents with a penchant for the modernist sensibility. Two palettes are offered: “Steam” ushers in calming beige cabinetry and splashbacks in the kitchen, a strip of ivory back-painted glass tiles in the bathroom, and brushed brassware. Meanwhile, dark grays and polished chrome characterize “Cloud”—a broodier but just as stylish color arrangement.
Amenities in the sky lounge on the 14th and 15th floors of Battersea Roof Gardens include a private cinema, work areas and meeting rooms, lounges and dining rooms with awe-inspiring views of the London skyline, a gaming area with a pool table, and a cocktail bar. From the sky lounge, you can ascend to the gorgeously undulating Battersea Roof Gardens—envisioned by LDA Design in collaboration with James Corner of New York High Line fame—bursting with planted borders and picnic and barbecue areas and serving up 360-degree views of London.
