Battersea Power Station reveals its first luxury apartment in London
A taste of what's to come
The London area of Battersea is undergoing quite the revamp of its iconic Power Station, with only a few of the 254 brand new apartments there remaining on the market.
The Power House is the first show apartment for 'phase two' of the seven-stage, £8 billion redevelopment, and photos recently released today showcase its Thames River views and art deco-inspired interior, designed by London-based Michaelis Boyd Architects.
Built on the top corner of the Grade II listed Power Station, the two-bedroom apartment demonstrates the two interior design styles available to buy. There is the choice of Heritage '33, with features such as dark herringbone flooring inspired by the classic elegance of the original power station which was built in 1933, or Heritage '47, which includes modern, sharper touches like brushed stainless steel to tie in with the architectural crispness of the station's second building, designed in 1947.
Michaelis Boyd describes the design, which includes exposed brickwork, oak chevron flooring and concrete kitchen worktops, as "refined industrial-authentic, highly tactile and visually dramatic".
