|Title:||Prince of Wales Drive, London, UK|
|Client:||St William Group|
Situated overlooking Battersea Park, Prince of Wales Drive is an exclusive residential development set within 2.5-acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, that will establish a new standard in exceptional city living. The development will stitch this part of Battersea back into the community after over 150 years of industrial use.
Designed by Squire and Partners, Prince of Wales Drive is a new mixed-use development on a former gasholder site adjacent to Battersea Power Station. Developed by St William, a joint venture between developer Berkeley and landowner National Grid, the development consists of 12 buildings comprising 839 new homes, new educational space, a nursery and retail units, set within a green landscaped environment and an enhanced public realm.
Our approach to the landscape design references the site’s history, incorporating a palette of material from its industrial past, whilst ensuring the new community of residents have access to an exclusive collection of beautiful and luxuriant gardens and terraces.
A desire to create lush green spaces was in part driven by an irresistible urge to connect with Battersea Park, a well-established and much-loved gem in close proximity to the site. Our designs bring together the buildings and park through a finely detailed tapestry of seasonal flowers, trees and planting that permeate and flow effortlessly through the development.
