Jeanne Gang of @studiogang has been named in Time magazine as the world's most influential architect in 2019. Bloody HURRAH for the girls! Amongst other incredible achievements, she's building a 348 storey tower in Chicago (set to be the tallest ever designed by a woman) and has closed the gender pay gap at her firm. Check out one of our faves of hers, the Chicago Boathouse which helps filter the cities polluted river water. That external cladding is just πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ‘ŒπŸΏ (pics by @dezeen) #womeninarchitecture #architect #archidaily #architecture #chicago #waterside #genderpaygap #inspiration #ecobuild #communityproject #designedby #tapedesign #zinc #riba #cladding #ribanorthwest #modernarchitecture #archilovers #buildingproject #construction #design #boathouse #rowing #greenliving #ecohouse #portfolio #ulverston #lakedistrict #cumbria

Everyday inspiration coming from @themodernhouse this morning. Exposed steel like this beauty needs coating in a special intumescent paint to protect from fire as, like most things in a fire, steel gets hot! The paint effectively swells up and protects the material underneath it, which can be pretty crucial if it's holding up your house! Like most things in building, the paint is expensive (and really hard to apply) so you choose a colour and stick with it! Our Pinterest board has seen us collecting some amazing dark greens and rusts, but this is swaying me towards a wonderful concrete grey. What do you think?! #tapedesignuk #architect #themodernhouse #exposedsteelframe #archidaily #newbuild #architecture #interiors #riba #ribanorthwest #timberframe #concrete #industrial #scandinaviandesign #modernarchitecture #archilovers #selfbuild #project #buildingproject #construction #design #buildingsite #greenliving #shadesofgrey #chelsea #thelakes #lakedistrict #cumbria

This walk to the office is a constant driving factor of self employment for us. Sea to the front, mountains to the back. It's grim up north. #tapedesign #architects #selfemployed #walktowork #itsgrimupnorth #workinprogress #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #livingthedream #lakeslife #thelakes #lakedistrict #ulverston #cumbria

It might not look like much, but by the end of the week this pile of concrete beams (and 24 tonnes of block) will have been lifted into situ and we will finally have a floor. The toll on our sleep pattern has been immeasurable, but we've bloody done it. We know it's only Monday, but we might need to cash in the Friday beers a little early this week, it's gonna be a long one! #selfbuild #tapedesignuk #architect #archidaily #newbuild #architecture #concrete #riba #ribanorthwest #timbercladding #cladding #stonefacing #conservation #modernarchitecture #vernacular #archilovers #planning #project #buildingproject #construction #design #buildingsite #greenliving #ecohouse #workinprogress #portfolio #ulverston #lakedistrict #cumbria

I watched this Peat House gable being rebuilt in a boiling hot summer as a teenager, under strict instructions from the rents to provide brews, butties and cool water to the workforce. It was their way of teaching, in a small way, how a building site and business should be run; a happy workforce makes good work! I hope that contributed in part to the top workmanship in this wall; a lot of bacon sandwiches went into its production! #tapedesignuk #architect #archidaily #restoration #architecture #rebuild #listedbuilding #riba #ribanorthwest #stonework #woodburner #stonefacing #conservation #vernacular #archilovers #project #buildingproject #cumbria #happyworkers #construction #design #nationalpark #buildingsite #ecohouse #portfolio #lakedistrict

We are over the moon to have gained planning permission for this tiered, 'upside-down' house in our local town. Access and circulation around the house has been tailored for someone with limited movement, which will worsen over time. The house has been designed to sit comfortably into the steep slopes of a lower garden area. Though it's position in the town is prominent, external cladding materials of zinc, natural timber and Lake District stone facing will allow this home to blend seamlessly into its garden surroundings. From the roadside, aided by the sloping site, strategic planting and fencing, you will be greeted by a private, single storey front entrance and garage. Step-less from street level to spacious living areas and balconies, with a lift to the lower ground floor and garden, the house allows our client to remain in a central town location connected to the community. A modern and architecturally significant house within a Conservation Area. #tapedesignuk #architect #archidaily #newbuild #architecture #zinc #riba #ribanorthwest #timbercladding #cladding #stonefacing #conservation #modernarchitecture #vernacular #archilovers #planning #selfbuild #project #buildingproject #construction #design #buildingsite #greenliving #ecohouse #workinprogress #portfolio #ulverston #lakedistrict #cumbria

This ones a goody: a former mission room in the heart of the lakes to be turned into an eco bunk-house with full wheelchair access and accompanying facilities. We'll be working hands on on this one sorting out some wall bellying and re-roofing. A labour of love for my mum and dad. Can't wait to get started! πŸ”¨#tapedesign #architect #bunkhouse #ecohouse #solarpanels #stonework #slate #cumbria #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #selfbuild #renovation #renovate #repurpose #restore #doityourself #architecture #architect #building #project #smallbusiness #contemporary #modernhome #minimalism #dailyinspo #architecturelovers #archidaily #homestyle #thelakedistrict #ulverston #lakedistrict #thelakes
