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.

Stairs are now in to get to the screeded basement floor. This will be overclad with a final finish of oak boards as seen in the photo below.

Our vertical cross laminated timber structure will be left exposed on the spine walls between the two houses. The sample of oak flooring seen here will compliment them on all the floors and stairs

Happy New Year to all. We got some flat roofing on the houses and the walls covered in insulation and tyvek before Xmas so we have beaten off the inclement weather pretty well. We will be posting further pictures in the coming weeks as we work towards completion in May.
