The Royal Chelsea Hospital is one of the UK’s most iconic buildings. It’s home to those famous redcoats, the Chelsea Pensioners, each of whom is a deserved beneficiary of this purpose-built safe haven for elderly veterans. It was initiated by King Charles II in the 17th century and the 300 veterans who live there have all served at least 12 years in the British Armed Forces.
Storm was asked to assist with the ongoing modernisation of the hospital building, helping to make the accommodation warmer and quieter. Working in conjunction with London-based architects, Peregrine Bryant, we did this by adapting our innovative glazing system to the building’s particular requirements. This had to go through various stages of testing to ensure that it would be invisible while viewing the building from the outside and included fitting non-reflective glass which we imported from Germany.
We’re proud of the work we did at the Royal Chelsea Hospital, and you can learn more about it on our video. We thoroughly enjoyed making the video and it’s a great opportunity to take a look at this incredible old building.
