Prospect Place, situated just south of Battersea Power Station and an integral part of the Battersea regeneration project, has recently welcomed its first residents.
World renowned architect
Known worldwide as the architect behind iconic buildings such as the Guggenheim in Bilbao,
the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA and the Dancing House in Prague, Prospect Place are Gehry Partners first residential buildings in the UK. But they have all the hallmarks of a typical Frank Gehry building, with fragmented elements and a deconstructivist, style.
There are 308 homes across the two buildings which make up Prosect Place, including studios, multi-bedroom apartments, four-bedroom townhouses and penthouses. No two properties are the same. But each home adheres to a common theme: There’s an emphasis on open plan living, spaciousness, and access to an outside space, whether that’s a winter garden, a terrace or a communal private garden. The residential garden between the two buildings has been designed by LDA Design, the landscape designers behind the London Olympic Park.
Gehry Partners has chosen two colour palettes for the interiors. The London palette reflects the location of the buildings and the industrial heritage of the area with metal finishes and rich textures. While the LA palette is a lighter colour scheme with pale woods, warmer tones and a more relaxed vibe.
First class amenities
Prospect House residents will also have access to all the amenities of the adjacent building: Battersea Roof Gardens. Designed by Forster + Partners, Battersea Roof Gardens includes a lounge, cinema room, and a gym.
Residents will also be able to enjoy rooftop gardens designed by LDA Design and James Corner, designer of the New York High Line. And, of course, residents of Prospect Place, also have easy access to the shops and restaurants of Battersea’s newest street, Electric Avenue, as well as the retail offering at Battersea Power Station itself, which is due to open to the public in September 2022.
“I love London,’ says Gehry Partners’ founder Frank Gehry. ‘It has culture, history and diversity and the buildings we have created at Battersea Power Station are designed to stand artfully on their own amongst all of that, whilst also framing an internationally recognised icon.
“It is important we create social places for future generations and our goal from the start has been to create a neighbourhood that connects to the historic fabric of the city of London but also has its own identity and integrity.”
