Battersea Power Station and Gas Holders, Wandsworth
The former coal fired power station, built between 1930 and 1955 is one of London’s most iconic buildings, and well known for its powerful silhouette and carefully detailed exterior to designs by Giles Gilbert Scott. The building has a fascinating history as the capital’s once most productive energy producing plant, but became redundant in the 1980s and has since been derelict. The practice prepared an Historic Buildings Report and provided historic buildings advice and design guidance for proposals to repair and refurbish the Grade II* listed building and develop the site. As part of an assessment of development options for the site, the practice also provided an Assessment of Suitability for Listing of four Victorian and 20th century gas holders on an adjoining site.
