The team at Avanton have joined together with esteemed architects Patel Taylor and interior experts Johnson Naylor to create Coda. This partnership is strengthened beyond the three contributors’ individual prowess by their shared focus on the primary importance collaboration: with each other but also within their strategy, through the belief that all aspects of design and their relationship with the broader context need to work in harmony for a successful outcome. This collaboration also cultivates a strong ethos of clarity, rationality and openness, ensuring an integrity matched only by creative fervour.
Avanton is a new dynamic and progressive London property development company. We collaborate with the finest architects, landscapers, designers and constructors, to create places where people love to live, work and enjoy. Places that are innovative and inspiring, appreciated both for their design and quality as well as their future value.
Current projects include a four-acre site in Richmond to be developed in a joint venture with ICG-Longbow delivering a significant mixed-use, residential-led scheme and the creation of a new enclave of contemporary townhouses and apartments, in the heart of Battersea Village.

In its three decade history, Patel Taylor has accumulated ten RIBA awards – testament perhaps to the success of the firm’s founding ethos of catering to requirements of client, site and intended use on a highly individualised basis. This sensitivity to specifics can be seen in a multitude of prestigious schemes such as the high-profile regeneration of Earls Court and the creation of the Athletes’ Village for the 2012 Olympics.
The firm’s skill is evident nowhere more than in Coda’s structural elegance. Here, the external wrap which folds through the gradually regressing stages makes it a new London landmark, while also hinting towards the movement and folds of fabric surely found at the building’s base in the Royal Academy of Dance.
Coda’s carefully positioned windows serve to frame the surrounding skylines as well as optimising light flow through every apartment, so residents can experience both their interior spaces and surrounding views in optimal conditions.
The balance of structural clarity and graceful design found in Coda’s architecture is drawn into the interior by Johnson Naylor’s design. Having worked with clients such as the Barbican, Magnum Photography and Battersea Power Station, Johnson Naylor’s refined approach is not only truly contemporary but artistically tuned as well.
Coda homes will be characterised by their textural fluidity and visual balance. Complementing elements of porcelain, timber and glazing will elevate spaces by providing accent points as well as natural backdrops, all structured around framed city views.
