CEG’s joint venture development with Banda Property has secured the coveted Sunday Times Best British Homes Award for Best Apartment Building (24th September 2017).
Located in the heart of the Battersea creative district, Radstock House is a new build mixed-use development comprising eight luxury apartments, an art gallery and creative office space.
Working with Claridge Architects the sandstone façade has created two modules each with a luxury penthouse at the top. These surround a landscaped courtyard. Each apartment enjoys the full floor plate of the apartment block with either a double or triple aspect creating generous, well-lit lateral spaces.
The ground floor houses an art gallery and offices with the design taking reference from the surrounding area, including the Royal College of Arts Dyson Building.
CEG’s worked closely with joint venture development partner, Banda Property, to oversee the project.
Phil Stallwood, Development Manager at CEG, said:
“Battersea has recently made its name as an entrepreneurial creative district and is home to the fashion design studios of Vivienne Westwood and Royal College of Arts. This was a fantastic high quality project to deliver, with contemporary architecture providing larger than average apartments ranging from 1,700 to 4,100 sq ft which meant we were able to bring a distinctive apartment design to the market.”
The judges stated that this high quality development used beautiful materials which resulted in strong elevations with attractive composition of different architectural materials. There was a strong attention to detail with careful internal planning and wonderful glazing components. It is a well-considered, refined and sophisticated development with an excellent relationship between the interior and exterior.
CEG will use similar high quality design principles at its forthcoming £400 million Kirkstall Forge development in Leeds.
