Red Cedar Shingles
Marley’s Western Red Cedar Shingles were used as an internal and external building material for an award-winning music therapy centre in Penrith.
The Sunbeams Music Centre is a 600m sq. therapy centre, which houses a number of meeting rooms and therapy rooms, a recording studio and performance space, and administration facilities to support over 1,500 people each month.
The architects opted for locally sourced, natural materials wherever possible, to suit the building's rural setting overlooking Ullswater, the second-largest lake in the Lake District. Western Red Cedar Shingles were ideally suited for the natural aesthetic.
