Welcome to our blog documenting the construction of two new houses in Asylum Road, Peckham. The design of the scheme can be seen on our website.

These have been named the Laundry Houses. During the design phases of the project, we found that there had been a laundry on the site of Albert Way, the road that the new houses will open onto. The laundry theme has informed the material and design decisions we have been making.

Over the coming months we will be posting photographs of the construction process and images of things that have influenced and informed the design.

Come back regularly to follow our progress, or visit to find out more about us and our work.

Big day today pumping in the screeds to the basement.
The concrete coming to site being poured into the little orange pump.

The underfloor heating pipes in place before being covered in concrete screed

The one house basement completely screeded. An engineered timber floor will float on top of this after 120 days when the screed has fully dried out and the heating can be put on.

The brickwork skin appearing along the no 18 garden side of the building

Good to see our first floor pods being insulated awaiting the tyvek breather membrane waterproofing layer ready for the glass cladding.
