The building design is very relaxing and minimalistic, evocative of a more sustainable way of living that helps to enjoy living inside and create a neutral space to facilitate interactions.
Facilities are wisely and conveniently positioned, like the gym that is hard to forget after a tour, with Technogym top notch appliances, located in the basement along with a modern launderette with lots of robust machines and fast app, a game room with a huge screen and consoles, ping pong table, and so on. The basement also includes a soon to come storage units, bike racks, and a clean refuse rooms with recycling bins as well.
Other interesting aspects of facilities are the cubicles for meetings and privacy in the working area, a huge kitchen at the 7th floor with different appliances including blender, toaster, air fryer, along with all you might need to cook and enjoy a meal.
There is also a small library to read in a quiet room and last but not least, a parcel deposit managed via app that I think is a game changer when it comes to delivering and collecting parcels avoiding long queues and missing items.
Property is well managed so far, including daily cleanings of local areas, support for any enquires, weekly events and convinient app to manage the essential aspect of the co-living with ease.
I’ve been in other co-livings in London and this one seems to have improved from them, addressing all the pain points and finding a sweet spot between the current co-living offer and demand, especially in the room size and space allocation, design and facilities along with modern common areas that are more close to the needs of members.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:
Despite not being in a more served area regarding public transport, It provides more quiet environment to relax, good after long hours of commute and work in the busy centre and it feels generally safe to get around and about.
The local area provides conveniently positioned grocery stores (Co-op), Pharmacy, GP, a French Brasserie, a small bar at the entrance of a gym and a self storage service to drop some extra boxes (the residence also provide storage units in the basement).
Two steps from the Residence there is direct access to the side walk of Thames with a Uber boat stop just nearby, to enjoy a different way to commute during a sunny day.
Overall is a pleasant location, especially for working from home far from the noisy chaotic city life.
Transports are also accessible walking distance including bus and Clapham Station to pop in Battersea Power Station or the Battersea Park during a sunny day.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
I haven’t had a tour before moving in, so for me was actually all new, but I have to say it not only matched but surpassed my original impression based on the website pictures and info and previous experience in other co-livings.
The only thing I would recommend to get is a dehumidifier as the rooms tends to be a bit warm due to the way there were designed, definitely a smart move for the rigid winters but can be a little bit stressful during a hot wave.
Also would recommend to get bed linens and pillows before moving in as they’re not provided.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
The team generally try to quickly sort out any issue based on availability of the maintenance and the nature of the issue. Still a bit of working in progress in terms of app and check-in, check-out procedures due to the recent opening, but everything seems to be addressed quickly and smoothly by the team.
