Interior and Exterior Design Features
Battersea, in London, is famous for its red brick Victorian Houses and mansion flats. At Battersea Place, we wanted to create a development that was sympathetic to the surrounding properties. We used brickwork as part of the exterior design to compliment the neighbouring residences located on Albert Bridge Road (opposite Battersea Park).
Around the perimeter of the development, careful planting maintains a sense of privacy from the bustling world outside. At the centre is an outdoor courtyard which provides a central focal point. Together, with garden landscaping, this creates a quiet sanctuary to relax and enjoy a cup of tea or an alfresco lunch with friends.
Floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outside in, affording breath-taking views of the tranquil parkland opposite or dynamic city views to the west. The entire building has been designed to make the most of its proximity to Battersea Park and the beautiful courtyard at the centre of the complex.
Around the building, and within each apartment, considered design ensures easy and safe accessibility. The majority of thresholds are level, leading onto balconies and other outdoor areas. Automatic opening devices have been used where appropriate. The widths of the showers and heights of the WCs were also designed to suit residents with different mobility needs.
A boutique nursing floor is incorporated within the development, giving residents access to care services should they ever require this. This addition empowers residents and their families with peace of mind that award-winning care can be provided should the situation demand it. Couples are also able to stay in close proximity when one of them is in need of extra support, creating emotional reassurance, as well as practical convenience at what can be a stressful time.
