Purpose

[49] Design for the interior of Holy Trinity Church, Marylebone, London, May 1823

Aspect

Perspective of the interior of a church. The central nave is framed by an arcade of arches with a landing separating the nave from the gallery level. A stone balustrade runs between each arch at gallery level. Between each arch at both nave and gallery level are windows, rectangular and latticed below and square with a descending inner sill above. The vaulted ceiling is compartmentalised with recessed panels, with one at either side being a square latticed window, and an ogee moulding runs around the bottom. At the far end of the nave there are three double height arches, the central arch being higher, with the nave and gallery separated by a stone balustrade. The balustrade projects at the centre to house the pipe organ. There are arched portals to the sides and rear of the gallery and directly beneath. At the back of the nave is a panelled double-door

Sir John Soane's collection includes some 30,000 architectural, design and topographical drawings which is a very important resource for scholars worldwide. His was the first architect’s collection to attempt to preserve the best in design for the architectural profession in the future, and it did so by assembling as exemplars surviving drawings by great Renaissance masters and by the leading architects in Britain in the 17th and 18th centuries and his near contemporaries such as Sir William Chambers, Robert Adam and George Dance the Younger. These drawings sit side by side with 9,000 drawings in Soane’s own hand or those of the pupils in his office, covering his early work as a student, his time in Italy and the drawings produced in the course of his architectural practice from 1780 until the 1830s.

Browse (via the vertical menu to the left) and search results for Drawings include a mixture of Concise catalogue records – drawn from an outline list of the collection – and fuller records where drawings have been catalogued in more detail (an ongoing process).
