Loft conversions and roof terraces
Planning policies have come to be more relaxed with regard to roof terraces. Roof terraces consistently require planning permission and are therefore dependent on how lenient the planners are. However, roof terraces are more common where there are lots of flats as space is at a premium and gardens are often not very large. London and big cities are prime examples.
Offices in London often have no outside space and a roof terrace could be an ideal way of gaining an outdoor area. A psychiatrist London could even use a roof terrace as a consulting area– it could be made to look like a secret garden offering complete privacy.

Stunning roof terraces
You may have wonderful views over the surrounding area which would make a roof terrace ideal. Great lighting is typically an important part of the layout of a roof terrace if the terrace is to be made use of in the evenings.
There would be limits to the weight that can be put on the roof timbers in older buildings so the terrace should be designed to put minimal amounts of stress on the roof structure. Timber decking and steel planters could be made use of. Lights set into the decking would look stunning at night.
An upside down house may make best use of space by having bedrooms and living area downstairs with kitchen and eating area upstairs flowing out onto a roof terrace. Luxury kitchens and spacious dining areas on the top floor would be perfect for opening out onto a roof terrace.
