Welcome to Pitzhanger

Pitzhanger Manor was the country home of Sir John Soane, one of the most influential architects in British history. Soane designed many extraordinary buildings, but Pitzhanger is almost unique as a building designed, built and lived in by Soane himself.

A place for creativity, debate and participation

Following a major three-year conservation project, Pitzhanger reopened in March 2019. The Manor has been revitalised to take it back to Soane’s original designs, its extraordinary architecture restored for the public to see.

Pitzhanger Gallery, housed in the 1939 library building, has been improved to allow for major loans, and will house a series of contemporary exhibition by artists, architects and designers. All responding to Soane’s legacy and designs, Anish Kapoor (16 March – 18 August 2019) is Pitzhanger Gallery’s inaugural artist.

Pitzhanger is a forum for creativity, debate and participation, reanimating Sir John Soane’s vision to inspire and enrich our communities with art, architecture and design. Building on the dual foundation of Soane’s 1800 Manor and parkland and of the contemporary Gallery, Pitzhanger will unite the past and the present and inspire the future.
