Curatorial note

In 1825 while reconstructing the residence of the Secretary to the Treasury, Mr Lushington, Soane was directed to build a small room on the site of a central courtyard between No 11 and the projecting wall of No 10 Downing Street. This model represents the ceiling of the dining room and closely follows that designed several years earlier for the breakfast room at 13 Lincoln’s Inn Fields.
