The Royal Gallery and Committee Rooms were executed to this design: a three-bay gallery with columns is preceded by a square ante-room with prominent door and window surrounds. The gallery sits on the site of the old House of Lords, between the former Prince's Chamber and the Painted Chamber - the former of which gives way to the ante-room and an open-newel staircase. On the other side of an open area are the committee rooms, linked by a long corridor on the west side of the range. The south front of the new block is composed of five bays that are divided by pilasters.
Digitisation of the Drawings Collection has been made possible through the generosity of the Leon Levy Foundation
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.
