Three spectacular parks showcase the new Battersea Power Station
Battersea Power Station represents a new change for the city of London, transforming a derelict public icon into a grand space that everyone can enjoy. Every space and amenity in the regenerated area will give off an air of extravagance and well-designed flair.
While the different residential and office buildings will each be designed by a well-known architectural firm, so will all the public squares and parks, ensuring that the Battersea experience is seamless when walking from your apartment or hotel, and onto the streets. Here are three new spaces that will add to London’s inventory of world-class public spaces.
Power Station park
You can already stroll through part of this park (shown above), which has opened this stretch of the River Thames to the general public for the first time since the 1930s. The rest of the park, leading up to the gargantuan power station, will open in 2020. LDA Design are in charge of the design of the six-acre park, with two massive lawns allowing one to stretch and enjoy the river.
Elements of the park will reflect the industrial heritage of the site, with materials such as black concrete, timber, and corten steel. The space can be used for day-to-day relaxation and recreation and is already partially being used for the annual Totally Thames Festival.
Malaysia Square will welcome visitors to the entrance of the reinvented Power Station. Designed by Danish firm Bjarke Ingels Group, the square will form a passageway between the station and the Phase 3 Electric Boulevard buildings and the roof gardens. It will be situated on two undulating levels, forming a canyon effect.
Inspired by the Asian country, the square will be constructed with granite, marble, sandstone, gravel, and dolomite, found in the cave systems of Gunung Mulu National Park. There will also a hibiscus-shaped play fountain in the centre of the space, and there will be two subterranean art galleries dedicated to traditional and contemporary Malaysian art.
In the latest phase of Battersea Power Station, Prospect Place and Electric Boulevard will lead to a new community park, Prospect Park. The park, designed by world-famous Gehry Partners, will be at one end of a massive linear park that links Battersea to Vauxhall.
The north end of the park will feature a children’s play area that will take into account what local school children would like to play on. On the south end of the park will a be a new community centre that will host public events like lectures and community events.
With new parks opening in the next four years, Battersea is sure to become to the next cultural and events hotspot in central London.
The Battersea Power Station redevelopment project started in 2012 and will house over 4,000 homes, two new London underground stations, countless retail and dining experiences, and new community amenities like parks and health centres.
