Abstract:
The building has medium heritage significance as a meeting house purpose-built in 1969, with an innovative approach to the design of the roof structure, a timber hyperbolic paraboloid roof. This technique was pioneered in Britain and was briefly popular during the mid-twentieth century. Evidential value: This is a purpose-built structure of relatively recent date, on site of a former meeting house dating from the twentieth century. It is of low evidential value. Historical value: The meeting house has low historical significance, however Barnt Green Meeting provides a local context for the evolution of Quakers in the area from the beginning of the twentieth century. Aesthetic value:The meeting house has high significance for aesthetic values due to the quality of the timber hyperbolic paraboloid roof which demonstrates the advancing construction technologies being developed by architects in the post-war years. Internally, the roof design creates an interesting ceiling of both concave and convex curves, lit by clerestory windows. Communal value:The meeting house was built for Quaker use. However, it is also a community resource. The building is used by a number of local groups and has high communal value.
