Another excellent performance by H A Marks at Arc House, Harrow

H A Marks are pleased to announce the completion of the Arc House theatre complex which was part of the rejuvenation of the former Lowlands Recreation Ground in Harrow. With funding from the London Mayor’s Outer London Fund, the project was part of Harrow Council's regeneration programme.

Designed by award winning architects Adams & Sutherland, the park and performance space at Arc House provide an ideal venue for exciting community events, performances and activities held throughout the year.

H.A. Marks constructed a timber frame system, overclad with a rainscreen of Douglas Fir battens on a Cembrit panel background, internally Spruce ply fitted with a white spray finish. The exterior treatment includes both a graphic component and a routed decorative treatment to the timber battens. The building makes use of a modest palette of largely timber and engineered timber products which whilst suitably robust for public use are completed to a very high standard. The completed building has an overall footprint of 114m2 with a gross internal area of 94m2. Inside the building, we formed kitchen facilities, a small café with both indoor seating and an outside area looking on to the park.

 Associated facilities of WC, storage, waste and services are also included. Externally there are tarmab, cedec and mastertint footpaths. There is a turfed lawn area where planted shrubs and trees form a stepped terrace area to the front of the building. The main space is a performance and rehearsal area which opens up to the park by way of large stage doors to form a backdrop to outside performance activities as well as providing space for smaller internal events and rehearsal and community activities.
