To partially reduce London’s housing shortage, the project proposes a straightforward and resourceful solution, namely, to construct living units on elevated platforms over public parking spaces all over the city. Intended for young people and municipal workers (firefighters, nurses, police personnel, etc.), the units are economically affordable, insofar as land costs are replaced by the leasing of air rights. The building units are entirely based on prefabricated elements that can easily be assembled on site, thus further reducing construction costs. Adhering to the principle of minimizing emissions in the building sector in general, the project avoids the use of fossil energy for both the manufacturing process as well as for operations and maintenance – contributing, in effect, to a low-carbon architecture.
