A tranquil and nourishing space for hospital patients and the local community
Serenity Forest is an ambitious project that brings together Louis Vuitton, Möet & Chandon, and Cadogan Estate, furthering their collaborative efforts to ‘rewild’ the heart of London with SUGi.
Located on Chelsea Square, adjacent to the Royal Brompton and Royal Marsden hospitals, this project will transform an unloved, concrete space into a thriving forest that will provide nourishment to hospital patients and local residents - as well as to native flora and fauna.
Through the revival and preservation of biodiversity in the locality, Serenity Forest will also serve as an important nature hub within London for years to come.

Forest Report: Planting
“Serenity Forest will be a sanctuary in the heart of London. Located opposite a central London hospital, it is hoped the mix of native flowering trees will bring a little peace and nature-based sensory experiences to the area.”
— James Godfrey-Faussett, SUGi Lead Forest Maker
There will be seating areas dotted throughout the forest, providing a place where visitors can take in the sights and sounds of nature and witness biodiversity return to the bustling city. Serenity Forest will be a vital respite, particularly important for hospital patients and staff who spend large proportions of their day indoors.
