This exhibition reveals the fascinating story of Pitzhanger's restoration to the original vision of its architect John Soane.

This exhibition will explore how Pitzhanger, a rare and extraordinary example of John Soane’s work, was restored to its original vision.

Over a 3-year period master craftspeople employed cutting edge skillstechniques to peel back the layers of history at Pitzhanger, meticulously reinstating key interior and architectural elements lost for over a century.

The display will focus on three key elements: the specialist interior paint work; the exterior stone-carving; and the innovative use of glass as an architectural tool – all brought to life through imagery, archive materials and objects.

The exhibition is funded by a grant from Historic England's Covid-19 Emergency Response Fund and is sponsored by Hare & Humphreys and Jestico + Whiles. Supported by Historic England.
