South bank of the Thames, close to Albert Bridge
This eight-storey mixed-use building, located beside the Thames between Battersea Bridge and Albert Bridge, is home to the studio of Foster + Partners.  The architectural practice occupies the lower three levels and the floors above are made up of residential apartments.  Outside a courtyard provides a private access point for residents.  Fosters say this of their studio, “The main studio, at first-floor level, is entered via steps through a toplit galleried space and forms a 60-metre-long, double-height volume.  Along its southern edge a mezzanine contains meeting and presentation spaces together with a library and image bank, while below is a state-of-the-art model shop.”
