Frank Gehry Show Apartment Opens In London
Gehry Partners, one of the world’s most innovative architectural practices, has designed homes; commercial space and children’s play area for Prospect Place, which forms part of the new High Street at Battersea Power Station. The distinctive buildings will form the eastern side of the new High Street that runs from the historic Power Station building down to the new Zone 1 underground station served by the Northern Line. Prospect Place will be Gehry’s first residential project in the UK.
Rob Tincknell, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company says:
“This is an exciting day not just for London but for the UK as it will offer a first glimpse into the world of Gehry here at Battersea Power Station. Everyone involved is delighted to be able to show people the extraordinary craftsmanship and design from this exemplary architectural team which is bringing its world-famous innovation to London.”
THE FINAL LANDSCAPE DESIGN
Anchored by the distinctive ‘Flower’ building, the design is reminiscent of the billowing sails of ships. The undulations of the façades accommodate unique spaces of extraordinary quality within, with no two homes the same.
The LA interior is all about adventure, excitement and breaking out of the ordinary design concepts. Buyers, for the first time, will be able to see features such as the distinctive rough sawn oak-fronted kitchen cabinets with open display shelves. The use of wood has been integral to the concept from the beginning of the design process, a decision that is reflected throughout the apartment. The London palette is inspired by the global city itself and includes features such as chevron flooring and metallic kitchens.
Visitor get to experience remarkable winter gardens, unique internal living space, maximising light and views in all directions.
