Battersea Park East, London

Battersea Exchange is emerging as a mixed-use quarter to the western edge of the Vauxhall/Nine Elms/Battersea Opportunity Area, connecting new and traditional neighbourhoods. Residential development is complemented by education, leisure and small retail use alongside space for new and existing businesses to re-establish the area as a thriving working community.

Sandwiched between two busy main roads, bisected by two overhead rail lines and consuming the footprint of an existing primary school, this ‘invisible site’ is a masterpiece in land assembly.

A sequence of routes link the two railway stations, open up east-west links across the site and find their focus in a new public square. Integrated tree, planting and seating are used throughout the tight, mews-like streets and spaces, and the roofscape is heavily occupied with communal terraces, school play areas and biodiverse roofs to make best use of the confined site.
