Unexecuted designs for alterations and additions, 1796-7 (8)


The Canadian Centre for Architecture has an undated drawing for Hinton St George, largely in Soane's hand, that is an elevation and plan of the principal floor and front. The elevation is quite close to drawing [13] except that the three bay centre is domed. The plan shows the portico with a segmental plan that appears on drawings [9]-[12]. Among the colllection of British architectural drawings at Yale University, USA, there is an interior perspective of the Saloon (at Hinton St George) having a canopy domed ceiling with a raised circular lantern. The drawing is dated 10 January 1797. Copies of both drawings are in the information file for Hinton St George, Soane Museum.

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).
