2013年，业主委托WilkinsonEyre负责项目的二期建设，包括对被列为二级历史保护建筑的发电站本身进行更新。原建筑由Sir Giles Gilbert Scott设计，改造将与其原本的风格相协调，保留烟囱和涡轮机房作为项目最为突出的特征。设计尊重原建筑的工业特点，尽可能地将室内外原有的结构、砖构和彩色陶艺暴露出来。
WilkinsonEyre was appointed in 2013 to lead Phase Two of the project, which includes the refurbishment of the iconic Grade II* listed Battersea Power Station itself. The designs are consistent with and sympathetic to Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s architectural masterpiece, with the chimneys and Turbine Halls restored as the building’s most celebrated features. The approach respects the building’s original industrial nature: exposing the existing structure, brickwork and faience as far as possible both inside and out.

While respecting the integrity of the historic landmark, Battersea Power Station is being transformed into one of the most exciting retail and leisure destinations in London. Inside the iconic Power Station there will be 253 residential apartments, retail shops, restaurants and cafes, unique event spaces and a one-of-its kind glass lift, which will travel up the inside of one of the Power Station’s iconic chimneys, becoming a viewing platform as it emerges out of the 109m summit. Apple will also occupy 46,452m2 of office space across six floors in the Power Station for its new London campus.

Retaining the Power Station’s scale and visual drama is key to the project and is achieved through the incorporation of a full-height void behind the southern wall, a vast and open central atrium, and unobstructed Turbine Halls with new balconies. The careful articulation of old and new is vital to the success of the project, offering visual reminders of the Power Station’s heritage.

开放后，电站将容纳超过一百家知名奢侈品牌零售店以及餐饮和休闲空间，提供一个概念新颖的新型创意空间，填补一期开发的Circus West Village已有商店和餐厅的空白。
Once open, the Power Station will be home to over a hundred established, luxury and emerging retail, food and leisure brands, providing a space for new, unique concepts and creative designs that will complement the host of shops and restaurants already open at Circus West Village, the first chapter in this redevelopment.

Set against the backdrop of the existing Turbine Halls, the retailers are set to bring a new energy to the heritage landmark. Turbine Hall A, which was built in the 1930s and evokes the Art Deco glamour of the era, will be home to the premium collection of brands, and Turbine Hall B, which was completed in the 1950s, and has more of a brutalist, industrial look and feel, will house an eclectic range of more contemporary fashion brands.

The experience for the residents of Battersea Power Station will be unique with some even living 50m above the ground with their own garden on the roof of the building between the four giant chimneys. Apartments within the Power Station are finished with exposed brick walls and double height Crittall glazed windows, an industrial aesthetic reflecting the building’s history.
