CASE STUDIES BATTERSEA POWER STATION

 

Background

Lauded as the largest brick building in Europe, Battersea Power Station is one of the world’s most famous buildings, and certainly one of the most iconic structures to grace the London skyline. Now seventy years old, the building has lost none of its power to astonish, not just because of its colossal scale, but also due to the boldness of its design. 

Presently in 2015, the foundations are being laid for a new community; a thriving, diverse neighbourhood, where homes, workspaces, shops, restaurants, cafés, and cultural venues convene on 18 acres of new public space in and around the Power Station, all served by a new London Underground station.

This stunning £8 billion development is being managed by the Battersea Power Station Company, and in architectural terms, is sure to be just as bold as the original Power Station was all those years ago.

The Challenge

To produce a showcase feature, charting the history of the building, and capture its epic scale in a creative and original format.

The Solution

To get a real sense of the building’s immense scale, we decided to film the entire feature from above. We worked with some of the best craftsman in the film industry to capture footage from both a helicopter and a drone-cam, giving our viewers an engaging aerial extravaganza.
The end results speak for themselves; we captured never-before-seen footage of the building, with striking close-ups looking down the giant chimney stacks.  We filmed the central courtyard, the cranes, and the entire building from a range of diverse angles, creating a rich and exciting feature.

We also filmed ongoing building work on-site, as well as the foundations being laid down for the new Battersea Tube Station. Digital Boulevard have also produced other Travel and Property promos, including features for three breathtaking Islands in the Maldives (See case study here).
