Notes

Drawings 79 and 80 show three semicircular headed windows between the Accountants Office and the passage. In drawing 80, the final design, each of the windows is framed by raised half-antae. The bays in turn are separated by four semicircular arches. The arches span the corridor to connect with four piers of coupled antae on the south side of the loggia. A small stone wall connects the antae to the return wall on either end of the loggia. In 1891, however, the walling was removed so as to provide more light into the Accountants Office.

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).
