Former shipping containers are the latest space solution for a new animated project at London’s iconic new Battersea Power Station development.
S Jones Containers provided two containers for the animated public space which forms part of the new pedestrian entrance in the first phase of the £9bn Battersea Power Station development. The area, beneath Grosvenor Bridge, links Chelsea Bridge Wharf to Circus West and is the only pedestrian entrance to the site for the next three years.
Created by event interior design specialists Polar Bear Live, the 20m x 50m space includes a concierge desk/visitors’ information point, public toilets, six pop-up retail units and two event spaces, as well as storage space. At present, the containers are being used to store marketing materials, but in the future they will house outdoor furniture used in the space around the bridge during summer months.
Simon Woodward, managing director of Polar Bear Live said: “Shipping containers are very well priced and easy to install. They were the perfect solution for our storage needs and now that we’ve painted them copper, they’re an eye-catching addition to our scheme. Copper features quite heavily in our design palette and complements timber well, as there’s a lot of timber.”
Danielle Paul, sales account manager at S Jones, added: “It’s great that our containers feature as part of this spectacular redevelopment and is yet another creative use of containers that we can only wait for customers to create.”
