Sunbeams Music Centre
Location : Penrith, Cumbria
Sectors: Healthcare, Education, Sustainability
We have been working with the charity Sunbeams from the embryonic stage on their £2 million music therapy centre located on a sensitive site overlooking Ullswater.
The building is designed as a home and advert for the amazing work Sunbeams do working with disadvantaged members of society. Bringing music into the building was on of the key drivers alongside harmonising the building with the natural surroundings and wider environment.
The building exemplifies what we believe good design to embody; passive environmental principles, contextual connection through materials and techniques and innovation in form and layout. The design incorporates ground source heat pumps, photovoltaics and locally sourced materials such as sheep’s wool insulation.
