Ealing Green, London W5 5EQ 1pm - 4pm
Sir John Soane (1753-1837) was one of Britain’s most visionary architects, celebrated for his idiosyncratic take on the neoclassical style and mastery of natural light. Soane bought Pitzhanger in 1800. He demolished most of the existing manor house apart from the Dance Wing and from 1800-1804, designed and built a new house as his country estate sitting in 28 acres of parkland. Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery promotes Sir John Soane’s legacy, inspiring visitors with art, architecture and design and nurturing creativity for all within an extensive outreach and events programme. It celebrates Sir John Soane’s genius and influence as a designer, juxtaposing his architecture with a programme of ambitious contemporary art exhibitions.
Director Clare Gough will give members a guided tour and explain the work undertaken during its recent major conservation project.
