Purpose

London: Park Street: design for a chimneypiece for Henry Peters, June 1790

Aspect

No drawings for this but see below for note

Notes

The office Journal No 1, p.99, has entries for Henry Peters from December 1789 to March 1791 concerning alterations to the first floor, folding doors for the drawing room and (28 June 1790) 'working drawing of Chy Piece'. The address given is 'Park Street'. This small job seems to have lead to the later commissions for Betchworth Castle (q.v.).

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.
