be: Newhall

Harlow, Essex

be: Newhall is the latest phase in a development commissioned by an enlightened landowner working with a strong masterplan and an urban designer. The terrace housing has a distinctive courtyard design, and reflects local traditions such as Essex barn structures and materials.

be: Newhall is remarkable for the design of its houses, which use a simple, locally appropriate range of standard materials. It adds to the rich variety of design approaches at Newhall with a well considered house type which exploits the advantages of a wide frontage and courtyard form. The new neighbourhood is ‘book-ended’ by three-storey blocks of flats, modest in scale but solid and grounded, defining this phase of the development.

It is a coherent, simple scheme, popular with those living there.
