A retail reboot serving a new generation of connected consumer
After years of empty rumours the looming structure of Battersea Power Station finally opened its retail doors. Zoe from our Design team visited, taking in the power of the new development from retail and placemaking to pop-ups.
“The Turbine Halls were grand, dramatic spaces that we wanted to leave as open as possible; the magnificent colonnade of Turbine Hall A was a great grid to set out the different retailers within a context of highly crafted design elements – creating a multi-level galleria." Sebastien Richard, Director, WilkinsonEyre
In this retail report, Zoe shares her highlights, drawing from the fabric of the building and its landscaping through to striking new retail spaces and services that pioneer a new generation of shopping.
