Roof terraces served many purposes in the past. For example in Venice, a roof terrace was originally used as a place where laundry could be hung out. Today, terraces have changed somewhat in that they are not only defined as spaces serving a function, they are also used widely for entertaining and socializing. Roof terraces do not need to be located strictly on a rooftop, but can protrude from buildings, act as outdoor bridges between one living space and another, or are private paradises with spectacular views.
