Sir John Soane (1753 – 1837) is not someone you would have found to #konmari his house.
The English architect lived in Lincoln's Inn Fields, London, where he demolished three houses into one, catacombe-like structure for his vast collection of antiquities, artworks, and curiosities.
With 30,000 architectural drawings among the countless architectural fragments, classical sculptures, ceramics, and even the sarcophagus of Seti I, Soane’s eclectic range of pieces makes for a wonderland experience set apart from the traditional museum.
The seemingly random and cluttered arrangement of the artifacts lends a sense of adventure and treasure hunting that keeps you exploring again and again. Each time leaving you with the feeling that you still haven’t seen it all.
