The Royal Hospital Chelsea is undertaking a site-wide Development Plan, for which planning consents are in place, which includes the construction of new buildings together with the restoration and repurposing of Sir John Soane’s Stable Block (Grade II) as a Visitor Centre.

As part of this project, we have been asked to draft plans for the content, interpretative themes and visitor narratives in the new Museum and Visitor Centre. The proposal has the objective of enhancing the collection and define the visitor journey, ensuring that plans are integrated into the design and construction process.

The exhibition design includes display tables, narrow units for displaying badges and medals and wall-mounted boards for projections. 

Particularly inspired by the exhibition "Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures" from Wes Anderson and Juman Malouf; we have proposed display sets that are simple and classic in construction but with the power of putting at the centre the collection. While the display tables with big drawers are responding to the almost collector's attitude of the Royal Hospital.
