[11] Design close to the final design, from June 1784


Ground plan indicating the location of the Church Yard, and (marked in red pen) the existing Rectory and its outbuildings. The plan of the ground floor has a central bow to the north-west and another to the south-east with kitchen offices and semi-elliptical court on the right-hand side and stables and matching court on the opposite side. The Brewhouse, Washouse & Laundry are located away from the house. A North West View of the House & Offices and an elevation from the south-west correspond with the plan. The incomplete front elevation varies from the plan though an additional outline plan explains the difference namely that a narrow bay has been inserted between the house and its offices giving greater width and presence

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).
