Chelsea Barracks Phase 1Images1 / Information
Location London SW1
Status Completed 2019
Squire & Partners has created a trio of highly crafted residential buildings comprising 64 apartments and 3 duplex penthouses for Phase 1 of the Chelsea Barracks masterplan, which address Chelsea Bridge Road, Pimlico Road and the Royal Hospital.
Taking inspiration from the formal Georgian squares of Belgravia, the residential buildings are positioned around a series of landscaped public routes and spaces, ensuring the development is accessible to the local community and evolves as a natural addition to Belgravia.
Whilst being rooted in the heritage and context of the local area, the architectural language is distinctly contemporary. Building facades are characterised by smooth and textured variations of Portland Stone, fluted vertical columns, recessed bays and projecting balconies.
Bespoke leaf patterns designed for the external metalwork on balconies and penthouse screens were inspired by the history of productive gardens once prevalent in the area, as well as the nearby Chelsea Physic Garden, adding richness and complexity.
