Lack of space is one of the key issues in the contemporary city. In pursuit of more habitable space architects are looking up and expanding upon the rooftops of the existing buildings. This tendency is getting momentum and needs further investigation. This article presents a case study of several roof remodellings and extensions in various European countries in an attempt to find, analyse and explain the current trends in contemporary rooftop interventions. These are defined as partial adaptive reuse. Thus they are in accordance with a system, devised for adaptive reuse of buildings in the previous works of the author. Based on it they can be examined in correspondence with the two main methods of intervention between the existing building and the new construction – according to the ways of expression and according to the ways of interaction. Each method has several subcategories and allows for precise definition of every case. Furthermore, an explanation of the main causes for the roof expansion is proposed. In this way a better understanding and analysis of this matter is presented to both the architectural community and the potential developers.
