A magnificent restoration of Sir John Soame’s home

Pitzhanger Manor and Gallery reopened in 2019, following a £12M, four-year long restoration funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Ealing Council and the Arts Council. Artelia cost managers have been on the journey from the early concept design stage.

Pitzhanger is historically important as the home of influential architect, Sir John Soame and showcases some of his best work.  The restoration involved removing Victorian and Edwardian extensions and reinstating features like the conservatory, colonnade and a magnificent skylight at the top of the house. The restored interior decoration features highly detailed painted marbling effects; recreated Chinese floral wallpaper and a myriad of colours.  The public library, which had taken the place of the kitchen block, has also been converted into an art gallery.
