Battersea Power Station has been one of the UK’s most widely publicised restoration projects in recent years. The once derelict, Grade II listed building has been an important London landmark since its completion in 1941 but, following decommissioning in 1983, has spent more than half of its life as an empty, decaying shell.

It is now an exemplar of intensive multi-use transformation of a historic building to suit society’s shifting needs. Architects Wilkinson Eyre have created a deeply impressive scheme that combines carefully restored heritage assets, high-quality homes, and a contemporary retail experience, all tied together with an industrial aesthetic appropriate to the original power station’s awesome scale and character.
