Kelly Sanchez added this to Houzz Tour: An Urban Castle in Pasadena
Rowe created a magical space atop the roof, which offers views of the San Gabriel Mountains nearby. “I’d just completed a house on the canals of Venice, California, where you really have to maximize space,” says Rowe, who also took inspiration from the way roofs are used in Egyptian and Moroccan residential architecture. The daybed is by Dedon.See more photos from this project.More amazing homes:A Magical Castle in UkraineA Dramatic Renovation in TinseltownA Modern Mexican ParadiseA Brooklyn Landmark Returns to Glory
Shawn Gauthier added this to Remember the Rooftop
Of course, not all rooftops come with a ton of space. But even the smaller ones can be furnished with a sofa or chair, creating the perfect spot for an afternoon read.

Use of collumns or trees to create a feeling of a false ceiling, especially around edges make enclosed area that still looks out at the world

Create a magicval space - Maxime the space - daybed with outdoor fabrics, comfy chairs.faux grass if there is no grass, potted trees and topiery trees. Hide the space with the potted trees so it looks like nothing is behind them.
