The Art of Glass
When Albion Nord asked Stewart Hearn and his London Glassworks team to produce glassware for the two Chelsea Barracks Townhouses, there was a great deal of excitement at the studio. ‘It’s the sort of work we want to make,’ Stewart tells us. ‘Very precise, very high end, beautifully designed and hopefully beautifully made.’

The Magic of Porcelain
When Sally Marien speaks about pottery, it’s with the wide-eyed wonder of one who’s feeling the clay between their fingers for the first time. She has an energy, an effervescence, that belies her experience: after potting professionally for four decades, she is without doubt a master of her craft and the only choice for the Chelsea Barracks pottery collection.

The Beauty of Tradition
Let us take you back 32 years. Love was in the air, hope was on the horizon – the ‘60s were in full swing. Keith Rawkins – a fine art graduate, who had spent several years working alongside ‘The mad silkman’ Zika Ascher – spotted an opportunity. London’s fledgling fashion houses were in need of fabrics. So Keith and his wife Stephanie began designing and hand-printing from their basement flat in Fulham. Before long, they were supplying some of the city’s most celebrated couturiers. Marina Mill was born and is today creating a bespoke series of fabrics unique to Chelsea Barracks.

Five acres of green space that stitch together the site’s past and its future; celebrating London’s rich history while acknowledging its status as an ever-evolving, cosmopolitan city.

A Decade in The Making
In Chelsea Barracks a team of peerless architects, landscape architects, designers and masterplanners, have come together to deliver an entirely new neighbourhood in London. This extraordinary ensemble of people, in conjunction with Qatari Diar, have reintroduced 12.8 acres of isolated land masterfully into existing Belgravia, erasing the boundary of the barracks and creating a new legacy for London, one that will do justice to the presigious surrounds of this iconic Estate.

Somewhere to walk. Somewhere to dream.
Chelsea Barracks was always destined to be more than a mere collection of homes; before the first stone was in place, it was eminently clear that all involved were striving to create a vibrant new community . Of course, such a lofty vision came with considerable challenges: assembling a house is one thing, but building a harmonious neighbourhood from scratch demands care and dedication. It called for public spaces as sublime and considered as the residences they enshroud, for gardens that inspire and exhilarate. It needed a landscape architect with the foresight and feeling of Gustafson Porter + Bowman .
