Designs for Sandling House, Kent, for William Deedes Esq: perspective from the south-west

RIBA96337
Bonomi, Joseph (1739-1808)
NOTES: Sandling House, near Hythe, was the most austere of all Bonomi's small country houses. Damaged by a bomb during the Second World War it was demolished in 1945-1946. The unusual relationship of the house and household offices, with a porte-cochere connecting the two parts of the building, is typical of Bonomi and can be seen in his design for Laverstoke House (see RIBA96283 and RIBA96285). This drawing was exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in 1799 (no.1019).

Wimpole Hall, Cambridgeshire: the yellow drawing room by John Soane, looking north with skylight above

RIBA130688
Gibbs, James (1682-1754)
NOTES: The house dates originally from c. 1640, when it was begun and possibly designed by its owner Sir Thomas Chicheley. It subsequently underwent many alterations. From 1693-1710 a detached orangery to the rear and a service wing were added. From 1713 James Gibbs added wings and library to the north-west. In 1742-1745 the central block was reroofed and the elevations reconstructed by the architect Henry Flitcroft. Another wing was added on the garden side to balance the library. Between 1791-1806 the interiors were remodelled by John Soane. The last phase was the extension of the east and west wings by H. E. Kendall (senior) in 1842 (largely demolished in 1953). The house was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1976. The drawing room by Soane (c. 1792) was created out of a courtyard and stairwell from the 17th century house.
