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.

Out larch cladding to the back courtyards being installed & looking good. They are being co-ordinated carefully by David and Michael to tie into the cladding of the plant boxes below. 

Our sandblasted glass cladding fully taking shape.
Unknown to us the glass is pretty similar to the New Steven Holl designed art school opposite the Mackintosh in Glasgow. The cranes in the reflection were giving access the other week when we were there to strip out the debris from the awful fire that sadly took out the amazing library of one of my favourite buildings.
