The Drawing Office was where Soane’s draftsmen and apprenticeships worked up his celebrated projects. Just as Soane supported the next generation of architectural talent, the opening of the Drawing Office has marked the beginning of a new residency programme at the Soane. Two three-month residents are hosted per year (in the Spring and the Autumn). The two residents are able to work in the Office and will also be able to use the Museum’s collection, exhibitions and education programme to inspire and inform their work.
The two residents for 2023 were Sam Belinfante and Ella Baron. Meet them below.
Applications for our 2024 residencies have now closed. Thank you to all those that have submitted an application. We will share news of our new Residents in March.
