There's a swing about BatterseaMoney Glitz | Staff reporter 20 Sep 2018
Avanton has launched Coda Residences, which comprises 130 suites near the new global headquarters for the Royal Academy of Dance in London.
Pricing for a studio apartment in the Battersea project starts from 495,000 (about HK$5.12 million), with Jones Lang LaSalle appointed as the sole agent.
Based in Marylebone, the British developer combines expertise from some of the UK's most respected housebuilders spanning over 60 years, and includes former senior directors of Barratt West London and the Berkeley Group.
The development, designed by Patel Taylor, establishes a new and significant landmark for this part of Battersea, being just moments from the riverside and only eight minutes' walk from Clapham Junction.
Amenities include a dedicated music room, and a flexible-use entertainment suite - including spaces for dining, film screenings, and lounge.
Interior architecture and specification has been created by Johnson Naylor, designed as an honest reflection of Avanton's vision to do things differently.
Interiors look to create a home environment that offers a calm backdrop to everyday life, with a timeless sense of style and a high quality of finish.
Floor-to-ceiling windows create contemplative spaces, acting as natural extensions to the living room. Kitchen and reception spaces feature light oak flooring, designed to reflect light throughout the apartment.
Kitchens offer a mix of light and shade, with dark veneer cabinets at floor level and matte white cabinets above units, separated by a statement textured porcelain splashback in grey.
The use of porcelain continues in the bathroom, with the same printed piece as a splashback and wall statement.
Warm, tiled walls offer a neat alternative to a heated towel rail, while bold backlit circular mirrors enhance the muted and calm interior approach taken throughout Coda Residences.
Between the outer mansion blocks and the central building, private gardens exclusively for residents find their place above the Royal Academy of Dance, to maximize views over the River Thames and across Battersea.
The landscape design will have a seasonal approach, featuring a variety of plants and colors that will change across the four seasons.
In the public realm at ground level, historic trees will be retained, and new trees will be planted to promote biodiversity and create an attractive boulevard style design on York Road.
Residents of Coda Residences will also benefit from access to studios within The Royal Academy of Dance's for exercise classes for activities such as ballet and Pilates.
The new global headquarters of the world-famous dance academy will almost double the size of the its current premises. A world-class center for dance will be created to the academy's specification and will include state-of-the-art facilities including performance space, studios, a cafe, a library and an archive.
