Richard House is London’s first hospice for children with terminal illnesses. Operating as a charitable trust, the hospice provides support and respite care for the children and for their families.

Ronald Wylde Associates have been involved with the project since its inception, initially producing outline designs which helped to secure lottery funding and, more recently, developing a detailed design to enable the construction of the project.

The development is located adjacent to an area of woodland in docklands and has been landscaped to provide both formal and informal spaces around the various wings of the building.

In addition to the residential facilities a day centre is included and the building hosts an outreach service and houses administrative staff.
