1976/7SBC Minutes / 11 July 1976Lavant Building - Siting / There was wide-ranging discussion of the immediate and future function of the building, with general agreement that eventual use as a dwelling was unlikely. The immediate use as a shop necessitates ready access both for museum visitors and for goods delivery. A situation on the edge of the village group was AGREED to be the best solution. Inspection of potential sites on the north of the Market Hall resulted in agreement that the building should be positioned to the north east of the Crawley building, parallel to the side road from the Market place to the Forge. After measuring the site the following detail was AGREED: a) the Crawley Building should be aligned on the north side of the Market Place with its ground line 13' from the Market Hall, and its west end extending beyond the Market Hall to a position near the gulley. This would allow space on the east of it for a twitten and one building of about 20' width; b) the Lavant building should be positioned in line with the s \\
1976/7SBC Minutes / 11 July 1976Crawley Building - Treatment of Interior / The Director raised the issue of the choice between standard modern equipment and more rustic styles. Mr Warren recommended simple joinery staircases, and modern fittings with rustic encasing in oak, after the style used in the present Museum Office. He suggested that a good guiding principle for selection should be items of sympathetic materials and of non-committing styles. More information will be obtained on types and styles of chairs, etc.
Mr Warren would be grateful for information about the amount of filing space required with detail of the numbers of stacks for books and the length of shelving. Mr Newell commented on the use of the meeting room and suggested the need to move and stack furniture should be particularly remembered. Planning Permission for the building has been received and the architects' plans are ahead of the carpenter's work. A special meeting will be arranged between Messrs. Warren, Zeuner and Harris to arrange the detail of lighting \\
1976/7SBC Minutes / 11 July 1976Chairmanship of this Committee / Mr Warren stated that because, as Hon. Architect to the Museum, he was so often deeply involved in the subjects of the Committee's discussions, he experienced difficulty in doing justice to the matters which concerned him in that role and at the same time acting with the detachment of the chairman. Since Mr McDowall has been able to resume his membership of the Committee, members might consider it appropriate to request him to become once again its chairman. Mr Warren would welcome the opportunity to speak more freely on matters where his position in the Museum's administration made it desirable. Mr McDowall indicated his willingness to become Chairman and members were very pleased to elect him to that position. Members expressed their gratitude to Mr Warren for his patience and expertise in guiding them through what had often been widely-ranging discussions of complicated issues, and looked forward to the benefit of his informed opinion in future debates. The meeting c \\
