Western 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.
Sunbeams Music Trust is a 600m2 therapy centre which houses a number of meeting rooms and therapy rooms, a recording studio and performance space, and administration facilities to support over 1500 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.
Sunbeams provides Music For Life® and Music For Dignity® Projects to severely disadvantaged and disabled people in Cumbria to improve their quality of life and self-esteem through the creative freedom of music.
