Sir John Soane's
Pitzhanger Manor Restoration

Large carved Roundel designed by Sir John Soane installed at Pitzhanger Manor

Pitzhanger Manor, a grade 1 listed building in Ealing, West London is a rare example of a spectacular building designed by Sir John Soane, one of Britain’s most influential architects. Largely intact, London Stone Carving was commissioned to examine and re-interpreted historic drawings and paintings of the building, and sympathetically re-designed and hand-carved two large ornate "Soane Rose" roundels, a recurring motif in Soane's architecture. These roundels are now installed on the external facade of Pitzhanger Manor overlooking Walpole Park. We also restored, re-carved, and replaced various elements of architectural and ornamental stonework which now adorn the manor's historic exterior.

From 1800 to 1804 Sir John Soane, designed and built Pitzhanger Manor conserved, restored and returned to Soane’s original design, by a £12m building programme generously supported by the HLF, Ealing Council, ACE and many others, the manor re-opened to the public in March 2019, and now houses a gallery featuring the work of some of the world’s most prestigious artists.
