New Yacht Clubhouse, Ullswater

pad has entered a competition for a new Clubhouse for Ullswater Yacht Club in Cumbria. The new building is to replace the existing clubhouse, which suffered substantial flood damage, with a design that takes associated flood risks into account. We aimed for a solution that celebrates the stunning water side location and co-exists with water without compromising its use and function and designed a houseboat. Instead of sustaining flood damage, it would float on top of the water and provide Ullswater Yacht Club with a truly outstanding building.
