Rosenberg House

newly modernised almhouse

The Project

On Tuesday 31st January Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall came to celebrate the reopening of the newly modernised almhouse, Rosenberg House. Built in 1974, connecting to an early Georgian east wing, Rosenberg House is a grade II listed building that provides homes for some of St John’s Hospitals’ elderly local residents in Bath.


The Approach

Oculus was involved in the building control aspect for the refurbishment works designed by architecture firm Stride Treglown to provide a new atrium and 15 spacious and contemporary apartments to help improve accommodation for support residents, enabling them to live as independently as possible.

This new permanent exhibition brings to life the story of Shakespeare's New Place and the personal life of its most famous occupant, and where he had his family home for 19 years.

CASE STUDY
National Museum of the Royal Navy

Storehouse 10 at the historic naval dockyard in Portsmouth was constructed in the mid-eighteenth century, during an upsurge in naval building prompted by events such as the Seven Years War. It was originally used to store everyday supplies for working ships plus some naval items.

During the Second World War, Storehouse 10 was hit by an incendiary bomb, which destroyed the clock tower and most of the roof and upper floors. More extensive damage was prevented due to a strenuous firefighting effort to save the radar sets within, which were to be some of the first installed in Royal Navy ships.

Restoration of Storehouse 10 was gradual and was eventually completed in 1992. It has now been converted to form part of the National Museum for the Royal Navy complex.
