Pitzhanger Manor House and Gallery
1804 saw the completion of Pitzhanger Manor, designed and built by Sir John Soane. Over two centuries later, Ealing Council appointed The Hub to carry out a major conservation and revitalisation of this show home, to restore Sir John Soane’s work to its previous Georgian architecture.
The Hub utilised its in-house workshop to create bespoke joinery items for the newly conserved manor, boasting Soane’s vision of Neo-classical Grandeur. Cast bronze semi circular plaques sit in the newly landscaped gardens, along with a bronze rotating prism showing the manor over time. These visually stunning and structurally sound pieces were specially designed by Ralph Applebaum Associates and built in house by The Hub to return the ex public library to Soane’s original design over 175 years ago.
The Hub ensured the protection of the Grade I listed building was at the forefront of the build and installation; implementing the upmost care mounting the uniquely designed picture frame-style holders onto the lath and plaster walls in addition to interactive elements, AV HW elements, plaster casts and graphic treatments. All audio visual elements have been carefully integrated into the set works and cleverly designed to fit seamlessly into the fabric of the building.
