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! 🔨#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

Checking out the new V&A Dundee a few weeks back. We turned up early and caught a wicked cloud inversion on the waterfront.

Wooden cladding has always been a piece of us at Tape Design, but safe to say a sneaky trip up to @russwooduk in the ever beautiful Cairngorms a few weeks ago has given us renewed vigour for both our own project and those of our clients 🌲 #tapedesign #architect #woodencladding #cladding #larch #selfbuild #renovation #renovate #repurpose #restore #doityourself #building #project #smallbusiness #contemporary #modernhome #minimalism #dailyinspo #architecturelovers #archidaily #homestyle #interiordesign #interiors #thelakes #cairngorms #thelakedistrict #ulverston #cumbria

This week signals a huge milestone in our self-build journey. Scheduled Ancient Monument status has meant that in order to demolish (then rebuild) our little patch, the ruins have been meticulously documented, stone by stone, by multiple professionals as well as ourselves over the last few years. Demolition to safe levels enables us to stabilise then rebuild the old mill so it looks just how we found it, but drop a new timber frame structure within the footprint. Easy right?!!
