Brinsley John Storace
Pupil April 1804 - February 1807. Information from office Day Book.


Neatly drawn and perhaps intended as a presentation drawing, the plan shows 30 stalls and space for eight coaches so, unusually, the scheme has become larger in succesive designs rather than (because of costs) shrinking. A re-drawing to a larger scale of drawing [93] it is entirely symmetrical except for the spaces given over to harness, corn and saddles.

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.
