Three buildings linked together by the public squares, designed by famous architectural office - Foster and Partners, located on the south bank of the Thames in close proximity to Battersea Park.

The most characteristic of them is eleven storey, mixed use development
which since its completion in 2003 has become another beautiful landmark of London.

It is very asymmetrical in a shape of a huge pretzel( at least from a distance) and with its wings opened to the river creating the open public space.

The architectural elements that were created of curved lines were a light motive in this unusual design.

Typical floor layout contains twenty eight apartaments arranged around four common areas - staircases.There are 183 apartments proposed in total in range of two to four bedroom flats.

Horizontal curves of the elevation, fully glazed balconies, use of glass, aluminium and concrete also design of the landscape architecture ( bu Speirs & Major ) make the edifice complete and as contemporary as it gets.

  3. Wow, I would love to see the interior spaces of this building! The apartments must have a magnificent view, and the exterior curves look like they create quite a bit of privacy on the balconies.
