Royal Visit for Ronald McDonald House, Evelina

The Duchess of Cambridge officially opened Ronald McDonald House, Evelina on 28th February 2017. Her Royal Highness met the families, staff, doctors and nurses from Evelina’s Children’s Hospital. The Duchess was then taken on a tour of the new £21m flagship house before unveiling a plaque to mark the official opening.

Ronald McDonald House Evelina London was designed and built to support Evelina London Children’s Hospital, part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, to provide a ‘home away from home’ for families of children staying at the hospital. AEW Architects have worked with Ronald McDonald House Charities for over ten years, and have completed five new builds as well as having a further two major projects with planning consent.

The £21m flagship House is situated in the heart of London, neighbouring Grade I listed Lambeth Palace and Gardens, as well as the surrounding Conservation Area and listed buildings. The design of the House began with a detailed contextual study of the immediate context, identifying key features which were integral to the fabric of the Conservation Area. The resulting design aimed to respond to, but not copy, these surroundings in a contemporary yet sympathetic manner, ultimately enhancing the sensitive and historic character of the area.
