The Royal Academy of Dance will move to the Homebase site on York Place, also in Battersea, paving the way for the £55 million residential development comprising 34 apartments and five townhouses.
The design of this new residential development retains and enhances the site’s industrial character, restoring it to its former glory. An elegant and contemporary architectural style has been adopted, influenced by the local character of Battersea Square Conservation Area and the existing Granary Building, which will be reconfigured and refurbished as part of the construction work.
The former 1970s dance studio extension will be replaced with a modern extension containing a mixture of units, including duplex apartments, while the ancillary block will be replaced with five family-sized townhouses. A central courtyard will act as a focal point for the development, with a contemporary industrial inspired aesthetic that will enhance the local surroundings, while providing all-important communal amenity space for residents.
