He won the commission for Windsor Castle in a competition between himself and three other esteemed architects, Robert Smirke, John Nash and John Soane. Parliament had voted a budget of £300000 for the project, the final bill a quarter of which was for furnishings came in at over £1 million (approximately £33 million in 2020).
