PETALING JAYA: The Battersea Power Station has unveiled the first completed apartment at the Grade II* listed landmark on the River Thames, as the transformation of the Power Station into a new destination for London continues at pace.

The apartment, which is one of 253 new homes being created in the building, features original brick and steelwork dating back to the 1930s as well as new floor to ceiling Crittal windows, Art Deco inspired interiors and state-of-the-art appliances and technology throughout.

The apartment is situated on the second floor of Turbine Hall A on the western side of the Power Station.

Architect and design studio Michaelis Boyd, whose previous work includes Soho House and The Groucho Club, is the lead designer for all the apartments within the building and has created two distinct colour palettes for purchasers to choose from – Heritage 33 and Heritage 47.

Heritage 33, which is on display in the apartment, is a decadent showcase of bold materials and textures inspired by the Power Station’s Art Deco glory years when it powered over a fifth of London’s electricity.

It features dark herringbone flooring inspired by the original Control Room A and distinct blue tiling in the bathroom referencing the original tiles found in the directors’ staircase, while bronze fixtures and fittings add a sense of glamour to the space.

As for Heritage 47, it features a fresh and contemporary aesthetic, reflecting the post-war austerity of the 1950s when the second part of Battersea Power Station, including the second two of the four chimneys, was constructed.

The apartment has been thoughtfully dressed by London-based interior design studio, TH2, part of the Taylor Howes studio, which has taken inspiration from the building’s unique history and heritage.

On behalf of the Malaysian shareholders, Battersea Power Station Development Company chief executive officer Simon Murphy said unveiling the first completed apartment in the Power Station is a major milestone for the project and is evidence of the huge momentum that is building as the company looked forward to opening the Power Station in 2021.

The Battersea Power Station team will be in town this weekend. Those who are interested to know more about the development and the offers available should visit the The International Gallery at KLGCC Resort on Saturday and the Setia International Centre on Sunday from 11am to 3pm.
