BARBARA Weiss Architects wins go-ahead to reuse historic Harlow barn for new hall reports architects journal.co.uk

Barbara Weiss Architects has secured consent to create an oak-framed community hall reusing the structure of a historic barn in Essex

Harlow District Council approved the practice’s proposals to restore and repurpose a rundown agricultural building on the eastern edge of the post-war new town.

The 325m² scheme will create a 100-capacity hall to be used by residents of the ever-growing Newhall estate, which started construction in 2009.

The historic barn was surveyed, catalogued and dismantled by The Green Oak Carpentry Company, which is repairing the structure with the intention of re-erecting it on site later this year.

The Architects Journal says work is to start August this year. Contract funding, contract duration and completion date are undisclosed. The main contractor is yet to be announced. So, will be another Golden Way experience with a planning application to keep up appearances of providing community facilities?

Correction: I missed out the word 'it' between 'will' and 'be' in final sentence of my previous comment.
