Project: Battersea Power Station Apartments
Architects: Michaelis Boyd Studio
Location: London, United Kingdom

Battersea Power Station is the largest brick building in Europe and one of the most significant surviving examples of Art Deco architecture. Having lain untouched for over thirty years this iconic Grade II* listed building is in the process of being restored and refurbished to create a vibrant new destination.
We were tasked with designing the layout and interior design schemes for 253 individual luxury apartments within the Power Station, bringing life back into one of London’s most famous landmarks. Ranging from studio apartments to five-bedroom penthouses, the apartments are located on top of the central boiler house and within the Power Station’s distinctive western and eastern façades.
We created two interiors palettes inspired by historical features and design details from the 1930s and 1950s, when the Power Station was originally built. Each one favours neutral colours, natural materials and brassware to give the apartments of Switch House West a crisp, warm, post-industrial, contemporary look.
