Sketch study for Robert Adam's Imperial Staircase at Home House, London

N° 20 Portman Square is acknowledged as Robert Adam’s finest surviving London town house. The interior is conceived as a series of grand reception rooms, beginning with a typically austere hall, leading to one of the most breathtaking “tour de forces” in European architecture; Adam’s Imperial staircase, which rises through the entire height of the house to a glass dome, revealing the sky above. The plates below were created for a local charity, featuring a sketch of Robert Adam's stair by Timothy Crum.
