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.

The ground floor lobby plastered and getting great light from the slotted rooflight above. This is also working well in the GF bathroom.

The back Ground floor elevation now clad in Camaru timber awaiting further camaru fins

The planters are taking shape

One house is now fully plastered and dry with a nice shadow gap detail to the timber ceilings. These will be left exposed with a white wash over. White walls will appear next week.

The underfloor heating pipe has coem for the G & 1st floor

The u/f heating pipe is too photogenic !

The staircase rooflight and ceiling now plastered with downlight positions cut out

The u/f heating pipe insulation is too photogenic !
