Patel Taylor’s residential tower in Battersea, following completion in 2017 captured in evening twilight sun.
The scheme was given the planning green light by Wandsworth Council’s planning committee in May 2015, for a mixed used scheme of 135 residential units with retail space at the base encompassing 618sqm. Within the planning permission, also included improvements to the public realm a multi-million contribution towards the Jubilee pedestrian footbridge, which will be built in parallel with the existing Battersea Railway Bridge.
The building features a distinctive tear-drop shaped floor plan which gives the illusion that is twists as it rises thanks to slight changes in its positioning of precast balconies as it rises. It has also been praised highly for it doesn’t have a distinct front or back, unlike most developments which face onto the riverside.
