Chelsea Barracks

An unrivalled new development and neighbourhood for London

Out of reach for over 150 years, this former British Army Barracks has been transformed into one of the world’s most desirable addresses. The 12.8-acre site in the heart of Belgravia represents an entirely new neighbourhood, home to a rare collection of residences, penthouses and townhouses, as well as an unparalleled array of private amenities within The Garrison Club. The new community in Belgravia will also include restaurants, shops and additional sports facilities, all of which will be open to the public.

 

A historic collaboration between the finest master planners and minds in the architectural world, the design of the site and the buildings seamlessly weave into the fabric of Belgravia, in part due to the incorporation of open spaces in the form of seven public garden squares. A British masterpiece in urban design, garden squares have been synonymous with the best of London’s urban planning for the past 400 years.

Combining military heritage with royal ancestry, the garden squares have their own story to tell. Mulberry Square pays homage to the culinary gardens of grand country estates, while the water rill that flows down the wildlife corridor of Bourne Walk has been inspired by the River Westbourne, a lost river of London. Rivers are also referenced in the design of Whistler Square, with its light-reflecting water feature, which is etched with the path of the River Thames. Garrison Square, named to honour the site’s military history, sits at the heart of the development, and is home to the Grade II listed Garrison Chapel. The chapel is one of the few surviving chapels of its kind in London and has undergone extensive renovation but will now be the centre point of the new community, repurposed as an art gallery for the public and residents to enjoy. Garrison Square is also home to a Ben Pentreath- designed restaurant that offers all-day dining.

Residents at Chelsea Barracks will enjoy access to The Garrison Club, an offering that rivals those of the world’s leading five-star hotels. This space comprises a 12,768 sq/ft private spa, 20-metre swimming pool, fitness centre, steam room and sauna, tepidarium, business suite, cinema, residents’ lounge, board rooms, private function room and a billiards room, in addition to lifestyle services, facilitated by a 24-hour concierge. Exuding elegance and sophistication, each space has been designed by a team of creatives to deliver an experience reflecting the development’s prestige and signature status, representing one of the most exclusive lifestyle offerings in the prime market.

Adding a further layer of modern sophistication and exhibiting timeless elegance, Qatari Diar has employed a selection of the finest and most talented English craftsmen to design entirely bespoke creations for Chelsea Barracks, such as the William Morris-inspired balustrades and a Conrad Shawcross art installation.

It has been centuries since London and the world has seen anything to rival the significance of this development – a neighbourhood that will leave a legacy for generations to come.
