Open Door: Jankes Barn

Jankes Barn is a Grade II listed Essex threshing barn in Jankes Green, purchased in 2018 with planning consent for the conversion of the barn and outbuildings for residential use. The architects reimagined the project as a means of inhabiting the existing structures whilst celebrating and doing as little as possible to change their character.

The Open Door project is aimed at architects who have been qualified for 10 years or less. It highlights the best of recent architectural heritage projects and the environmental and cultural benefits of building conservation. It also aims to foster knowledge sharing between expert practitioners in both countries, facilitating future UK-China dialogue on architecture and design.
