Plans submitted for revitalisation of vacant Ravenscourt Park Hospital into 140-home mixed use scheme
We have submitted our planning application for our landmark West London scheme at the former Ravenscourt Park Hospital in Hammersmith. The plans, designed in conjunction with award winning architects SPPARC, involve the preservation of the existing 1930s Grade II* listed building and will bring the disused site back into use after it closed as a hospital in 2006.
Whilst formulating our proposals we worked collaboratively in pre-application consultation with the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, Historic England, the Hammersmith Society, and a number of other local interest groups, as well as consulting with local neighbours.
The development will prioritise the sensitive conservation of the site’s heritage, including the former hospital building and its Art Deco interiors which have featured in films such as The Queen and television series such as Poirot and most recently, Locked In. With a focus on character preservation, the planned upgrades will deliver 140 homes, a 65-bed care home, as well as commercial / community space.
The existing hospital building, originally known as the Royal Masonic Hospital, opened in 1933, winning its designers, the architectural practice Sir John Burnet, Tait & Lorne, the RIBA Gold Medal for best building. Subsequent extensions were carried out in 1958 and 1978, and the building became the Ravenscourt Park Hospital in 2002.
The 3.87-acre site is prominent in the local area, overlooking Ravenscourt Park. It is well-connected, situated just 350m away from both Ravenscourt Park and Stamford Brook Underground stations, which connect it to the District Line.
Acquired in 2022, Ravenscourt Park Hospital continues our increasing development portfolio, using our capital resources and the development team’s proven expertise to create high-quality schemes. Working alone or in joint venture partnerships, we aim to bring over 2,000 residential units to market over the next five years, across our UK wide portfolio.
Duncan Brisbane, Development Director at TT Group, said:
“After our acquisition of this disused site last year, it’s great to reach this next milestone in delivering a new residential-led scheme in one of West London’s most popular areas. We are increasingly keen to identify new sites like this, where our development team can add value, bring vacant buildings and sites back into long-term sustainable use while preserving their unique character, and meet the need for new homes across the UK.”
