Royal Hospital Chelsea

The IM team are delighted to be working on an interpretation and exhibition plan for the Royal Hospital Chelsea, the celebrated 330 year old home of the Chelsea Pensioners.

Built in 1692, the Hospital has been home to the iconic veteran community, fondly known as the Chelsea Pensioners, since its foundation by King Charles II. It is also the site of the annual RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Our brief is to plan and design the interpretation for a new visitor centre in the 19th century Soane Stable Block, working closely with the client, Pensioner community, stakeholders and wider consultant team.

The interpretive experience will cover the Hospital’s deep history, its national significance, Royal connections, and what it’s like to live there now. Stories will be told through the lives of Pensioners past and present, and by exploring the Hospital’s outstanding approach to wellbeing and centuries’ old tradition of veteran care.
