Gordon House

Gordon House

The Royal Hospital Chelsea commissioned Paul Davis and Partners to obtain Planning and Listed Building consent for the conversion of Gordon House (built 1809 by Sir Thomas Leverton, Grade II Listed), the Orangery (built 1725 by Sir Thomas Vanbrugh, Grade II* Listed) and Creek Lodge (built 1868, Grade II Listed) into a single family residence. 

The sale of the property leasehold will fund the modernisation of the Royal Hospital’s Long Wards and other restoration projects, safeguarding the future of the Royal Hospital Chelsea as a home for retired soldiers of the British Army.

The various elements of the site were unified as a single residence through a combination of restoration and refurbishment (Gordon House and Creek Lodge), conservation (the Orangery), and new construction (the Annex building, which provides staff accommodation and garaging, as well as a new basement with swimming pool, spa facilities, gym, cinema, and plant rooms, all linked directly to Gordon House). 

A new landscaping scheme designed by Todd Longstaffe-Gowan unites the buildings on the site and enhances the already magnificent setting to provide the unique prospect of a grand country estate in the heart of Chelsea.
