Open-Air Design

A desire for privacy brings expansive rooftop architecture into modern homes

Implications - As contemporary design turns to more open and exposed structural layouts, maintaining privacy and personal space can be challenge. Looking to enjoy the benefits of open-air living without the inconvenience of being in a public space, consumers are turning to private rooftop architecture to satiate their desire for personal freedom. Expansive rooftop homes reflect a shift in what it means to relax, as consumers seek out less crowded, more naturally harmonious escapes.
