Art and community
A CELEBRATION OF DESIGN, ART AND CULTURE
Chelsfield strongly believes in the importance of art and design and brings this ethos to many aspects of the development process including construction. Where and when we can, we embellish construction sites by working with artists to create building wraps that celebrate design, art and culture.

Chelsfield identified world-renowned photographer Nick Knight as the ideal partner to create The Knights of Knightsbridge; an installation of 18 striking fashion images featuring highly structured ‘armour like’ creations from luxury fashion designers. They include designs from Gareth Pugh, Moncler, Maison Margiela and pieces from the archive of couture house Dior, by John Galliano.
