The Residence, Nine Elms
The plot sits on former railway infrastructure on a prominent site in the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area. The 500 dwelling residential project captures views across the new linear park to the river and the American Embassy. The composition is a low horizontal block in black brick and a vertical slab block in white brick. A palette of glazed brightly coloured, splayed tiles gives ever changing effects dependent on orientation and angle of view. GRID is also responsible for the interior design.
