Notes

The plans vary in size: (192) - 27'6" wide x 30" deep; (193) - 35'x 27'. The ground floor accommodation is the same: parlour, pantry, kitchen and wash house though drawing 193 has additional 'Offices or Cellar'. The stairs vary in type and location.

The plan of drawing 192 relates to the perspective of drawing 193 with its double-height porch framed by pilasters. Similarly the plan of drawing 193 relates to the perspective of drawing 195 with its wider, windowed porch set in a double-height, semicircular-headed arch. The side elevations of drawings 194 and 195 with their tall windows set in blind arches are the same except that drawing 194 has pilastered corners.

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).
