Converting “airspace” into upmarket new homes in London’s Putney

rpa:group’s Architects have been working with our client, Fruition Properties on the creation of four new apartments in London’s upmarket South West suburb of Putney…

Located along the Upper Richmond Road, this unique development has been innovatively created on top of an existing residential block, thanks to an ‘Air Rights’ planning permission.

With an ongoing housing and land shortage in the capital, this is a pioneering solution to deliver new homes, by building upwards on existing structures. It is Fruition Properties first development of this kind, converting valuable airspace into upmarket homes, with minimal disruption to the current occupiers of the building. Accessed via a communal stairway, the collection of one and two-bedroom apartments are specified to meticulous standards, boasting contemporary design and a high specification throughout. This includes bespoke kitchens, stylish bathrooms, white dune oak timber flooring to all hallways and reception rooms and under floor heating throughout.

Work commenced in September 2017, with rpa:group appointed as Lead Designer. Adhering to planning and building control and overcoming various challenges, including Asbestos removal, saw the scheme completed by the end of May 2018.
