Could always make curb on roof square and on a slope then any standard skylight could work.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to 10 Ways to Go Greener Through Design
Add a skylight. Go beyond a simple window addition and consider how natural light from above will revolutionize your space. This room relies almost entirely on natural light, eliminating most need for electricity while bringing nature in.
That glow comes from a circular oculus over the round kitchen sink. So even in an orthogonal corner of the house, the curving motif is picked up, a reminder of the curve by the pool.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Oculus
A round opening in a ceiling allows an abundance of light to fill a room and can become part of the design's motif.
