Lots Road Power Station was built around 1902 and provided power to the London Underground from its initial construction until the mid 1960s. Since the building was de-commissioned, the remaining structure has been subject to considerable decay, awaiting comprehensive redevelopment and retrofit.

The exciting conversion of the power station building will accommodate 260 apartments including 67 affordable units grouped around a large central atrium space at the heart of the building. Commercial space at ground and first floor will help create a vibrant urban street within the building.

Formation Architects scope also included the interior design for all apartments and common parts.

We have subsequently undertaken the detailed technical design to take the project through tender and onto site having developed the construction information using Revit to BIM Level 2.
