Bankside Power Station was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. Its enormous chimney dominates the structure and makes it an unmistakable London landmark. Bankside Power Station is 200 metres long, steel framed and brick clad with a substantial central chimney standing 99 metres tall. The chimneys' height were limited to less than the spire of St Paul's Cathedral which stands on the opposite side of the river.
Gilbert Scott's modernist approach also created some of the most recognisable windows of any London landmark and it is the awesome form of these windows that we have chosen to represent in an architectural sculpture.
Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.
Address: Bankside, London, SE1 9TG, England.

Battersea Power Station was a gift from my wife, I grew up in the shadow of this building, this piece means so much to me and my family and is an instant heirloom to be passed on.

Just a quick email to say I received the Cityscape today- WOW it’s brilliant, heavy as well. Got to say it’s a brilliant piece of work, very detailed, and up to date, and an ideal gift for a person that lives in central London as a gift. Glad I found your site and placed an order.

I am amazed by the craftsmanship and detail put into the U.S. Capitol dome model. I absolutely love it!! The customer service from Gavin and all at Chisel and Mouse are best. They went above and beyond in every way. I will treasure this for the rest of my life.
