Vista, Chelsea Bridge
Situated directly opposite the Grade II Listed Battersea Park, Vista forms part of the Nine Elms regeneration. Built on the fomer QVC/Marco Polo House site, the two contemporary residential buildings - 6 storeys to 16 storey's in height will provide 456 residential units consisting of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, duplexes and penthouses, many of which are dual aspect, together with 1,300 sq m (14,000 sq ft) commercial space. Designed to minimise their mass and bulk, the buildings step back to create an organic and curvilinear built form, this also allows for generous terraces, private amenity spaces and infinity style planted edge treatment rarely found in London. The buildings are also arranged on the site to open the development to the park, whilst protecting two large green communal courtyards from the railway. A public pedestrian route through the site links it to its’ surroundings. Designed to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, the scheme meets the Mayor’s London Housing Design Guidance.
