This breath-taking Grade II listed building on the top of Richmond Hill dates from 1924. Originally a military hospital designed by Sir Edwin Cooper, it housed the Star & Garter charity for nursing and dementia care until 2014, when the charity sold it to move to purpose-built premises.
The name lives on, but today’s Star & Garter has undergone a stunning transformation into luxury apartments by developers London Square, under the architectural direction of PDP London.
TRC was commissioned in December 2015 to begin a 34-month project to refurbish the 850 sash windows, over 40 pairs of French doors and 30 replacement identical sash windows so they perform to expectation in such a high-end building, while retaining their heritage characteristics.
TRC also designed, supplied and installed over 200 new timber/aluminium composite windows for an additional new building in the grounds. This included design to the developer’s requirements; producing prototypes to obtain planning approval; production; and installation by TRC’s own employed team of professional window installers.
