Detailed architectural plans for the Great Hall at East India House, London. The drawing features a doorway, window, columns and niches and was designed by architect Richard Jupp (ca.1728-1799).

Jupp was surveyor to the East India Company from 1768. In 1796 there was a proposal to extend the front building of the East India House, Leadenhall Street. Jupp was instructed to take the advice of leading architects, including John Soane. Jupp reminded the East India directors of his long service, and he obtained the commission for the new building.
