Wates - Royal Hospital – Chelsea
This new building set on the north bank of the Thames brings state of the art facilities to the Chelsea pensioners.
All aspects of this superb quality building had to compliment the Sir Christopher Wren design of the original buildings. Hence, the paint specification combined original and modern colours with a hard wearing and aesthetically pleasing finish. Dulux vinyl silk was used in the bedrooms, quick drying eggshell in the corridors and diamond matt in the wet areas.
The end result, reflecting the best of the traditional build with the benefits of modern materials and design.
