Nando’s Battersea Power Station: Pigs can fly


Battersea Power Station was a legendary London landmark even before it appeared on the cover of Pink Floyd’s Animals album. The iconic Grade II listed building and surrounding areas has now been reimagined as an exciting and innovative mixed-use neighbourhood.

Last year, Nando’s opened one of their most ambitious flagship restaurants on level one of the turbine hall. I was assigned to photograph and capture the restaurant design within its environment.

Moreno Masey Architects have designed the restaurant with all the heritage and qualities of the Nando’s brand whilst also delivering a Peri-Peri environment that is befitting of the iconic setting.

Serving all of its staple dishes alongside the newly launched Sunset Slushie, PERi-cante frozen cocktails and Fully Loaded Chips, customers can also expect to find the “iconic” Nando’s sauces available to try in a brand-new format at the PERi-PERi sauce pump.

From artwork to lighting design and furnishings, Nando’s champions its Southern African heritage by continually working with South African based designers across all aspects of its restaurants.

At Nando’s Battersea Power Station restaurant this includes Haywire light fittings from South African furniture designer, David Krynauw, and furniture from the Nando’s Portal to Africa design programme. Nando’s Portuguese influence is also celebrated with stunning handmade Portuguese tiles that feature throughout the restaurant space.

The new restaurant seats 120 in total, and customers will be able to order takeaway and Click and Collect to enjoy their Nando’s at home.

Nando’s is also collaborating with Battersea Power Station’s existing communities and sustainability programme as part of its ‘No Chuckin’ Our Chicken’ initiative.
