Building above existing rooftops is a sustainable way to deliver new homes that preserves existing properties and their occupiers.
Why Airspace Development
Airspace development refers to the creation of new homes in the ‘air-rights’ on top of existing buildings, by usually one or two additional storeys.
By utilising the existing rooftops, a huge number of new homes can be built with minimal disruption to existing communities and the London skyline – an exciting prospect in a city where the supply of land and homes is limited.
Airspace development is also far more sustainable than the prevailing system for new-build housing. Existing buildings are preserved and often enhanced in order to improve saleability. Older buildings are given a new lease of life, rather than falling into disrepair or being demolished unnecessarily.
