Can anyone tell me if it is legal to build a Kitchen on a roof terrace?

I've a Private Roof Terrace which is open & I would like to build an open
concept Kitchen to do my cooking, so that my indoors would be clean.

The area is totally covered & no one is able to look in from the outside.

Its a Condo not a Landed, so what are the Legality issues here?
Anyone here has the same experience?

Thanks.

If it is a condo , i think you need to seek approval from your mgt commitee also.

from my knowledge - no. they will cite loading issues etc (roof terraces are not built to withstand much weight). they will also say roof terraces were not specifically designed for heavy cooking (so even if you cite BBQ etc, they will say those are *extremely* occasional).

however,i'm a little unsure about your roof terrace since you first say its open (unsheltered) then you say its covered. please advise which one it is. if its currently open (no roof), then placing any kind of permanent structure to cover the area will result in exceeding GFA, which is a big no no.

Whether it's legal or not, you'll have to get pass many layers of office, it seems.

Just get a few of those portable electric cooking stoves and cook up a storm since nobody can see...hoho.

Its actually an open roof terrace, I've got 4 walls covering it, but the top is open.
I've got a short trellis followed by an awning to cover it from the rain & sun.

if no one can see what you doing, then why you bother can or cannot confused.gif

roof terrace can do many things, like:

1) roof garden inlove.gif



2) Garden with Water inlove.gif
3) mega jacuzzi sweatdrop.gif
4) RC heli launching pad / RC plane runway grin.gif
5) water proof sound system for roof top naked parties grin.gif

You are partially right my friend, cannot see, but can hear & smell...

I just want to know my rights so that I can avoid any problems that might arise in the future.

I'm not asking for Opinions, I'm asking for experience or people who know the rules & regulations to this subject.

Condo Mgt will always say NO to everything, this is to ease their problems & work load.

It is always good to know your rights, so you don't do what you shouldn't & not just listen to Mgt alone.
A second opinion is always helpful.
