Figure 27: Expansion of living space in Theth Gjelaj and Theth Gjeçaj, measured in square metres of inhabitable home space within the neighbourhood. Recent decline reflects ruined homes (Lee).

The preceding neighbourhood analyses were done on a building by building basis, but in some neighbourhoods we were able to document the cumulative expansion of square metres of living space (Fig. 27). Instead of merely counting additional homes, we totalled the addition of living space through new construction, renovation of stable space, and the addition of second or third storeys. Adding this layer of analysis at least allows us to confirm the pressure on living space beyond even the construction of new homes.
