The Ransomes Wharf site is located in Battersea on the northern edge of the London Borough of Wandsworth, 100 metres south of the River Thames and a short walk from Battersea Park and Chelsea Embankment.
The development includes 118 high quality, private and affordable apartments along with flexible commercial space and significant public realm improvements.
MSMR’s design for the scheme responds to the immediate location, surrounding environment and historical context, reflecting the brickwork aesthetic of dockside warehouses.
Careful internal planning given to the residential element of the scheme has ensured a high proportion of family-sized affordable units, with all accommodation exceeding London Housing Design Guide standards. Residential accommodation throughout Ransomes Wharf benefits from private amenity space in the form of balconies, terraces or private gardens.
A key objective has been to improve the permeability of the site, which is increased by means of newly formed pedestrian circulation routes, including a route along Ransome’s Dock to the east of the site.
Trentworth Properties Ltd is a subsidiary of Singapore-listed City Developments Limited.
