Coming Soon Warehouse Home At Battersea
WAREHOUSE HOME AT BATTERSEA POWER STATION – Launching September 2017
Coinciding with Open House London and the London Design Festival in September 2017, Battersea Power Station’s regeneration continues with the launch of a programme of short-term retail and gallery activations at Circus West Village – the first part of the development to open to the public. This curated project is housed in a series of purpose-built units at the entrance to this new riverside quarter at Grosvenor Bridge, next to the Power Station, located just a short walk along the Thames path from Chelsea Bridge and Battersea Park.
It forms the latest addition to the expanding programme of culture, food and retail activations at Circus West Village. The new units are designed to showcase London’s wealth of independent creative enterprises and entrepreneurs from across the city’s design-led industries, supported by partnerships with larger cultural brands and organisations. The development’s riverside entrance at Grosvenor Arch is also home to a bold new installation by the multi-award-winning designer Morag Myerscough, which has been unveiled this Summer, with elements of her design process on display as part of the gallery.
The mix of London-based creative start-up stars popping up on the new site across the London Design Festival weekends include:
Warehouse Home, a fast-growing lifestyle brand founded by Sophie Bush “the media entrepreneur building a loft living empire” (Enterprise Nation). Warehouse Home publishes a collectable biannual interiors magazine and has just released the debut Warehouse Home book, celebrating industrial-style urban living in London and around the world. The brand’s online shop retails vintage and contemporary designs for an industrial aesthetic, including exclusive products created for Warehouse Home by emerging British designers.
Beatwoven, a textile technology studio which translates music into digital weave patterns for a Jacquard loom. Founded by designer Nadia-Anne Ricketts, the pop-up shop will present a very special recent collaborative project with FirepitTech, a division of Warner Music Group, and the David Bowie Estate – for the Harrods Art Partners project. Beatwoven’s collaboration resulted in a bespoke commemorative textile art piece, the first of many, where Bowie’s sound is turned into vision through a weaving of the iconic song Let’s Dance.
And supporting the programme across the London Design Festival and London Fashion Week weekends, independent publishing house Thames & Hudson will be hosting their first ever pop-up gallery and event space, to introduce some of their leading London-based authors from across the fields of design, art, fashion, and photography.
More creative popups and collaborations to be announced shortly.
The evolving pop-up programme will run Thursday – Sunday each weekend, from Thursday 14th September 2017.
The independent restaurants at Circus West Village are open 7 days a week. A new Thames Clipper river bus service will begin from a jetty in front of Battersea
