Because the pajama lounge is often used by children, more whimsical touches might be considered, as Chicago-based architectural firm Morgante Wilson Architects did in recent construction of a suburban house. Taking advantage of the 20-foot-high ceilings on the second level, the design team built a loft into one end of an extra bedroom, reached by a ladder, where the three children in the home can play. “Its a place where the family can crash together,” says K. Tyler, the principal in charge of interior design at the firm. Having the option of food close at hand rather than having to traipse downstairs is another worthwhile addition, says Santiago Arana, a real estate salesperson with The Agency in Los Angeles and owner of Cutting Edge Development Inc. A few features he recommends in this space are a minifridge, microwave, sink, and espresso or coffee machine.
Local weather conditions may dictate certain precautions as well. Furniture may need to be bolted down so it doesnt fly away with strong wind gusts. Flooring needs to be durable to withstand the elements. Nissim likes ipe planks, a dense wood decking material that snaps together and doesnt require repainting. Theres also less costly porcelain pavers that are hard and durable yet not as heavy as paving stones. A good irrigation system should be available since water tends to evaporate faster up high versus on the ground. “Look at what grows well on a mountain and thats often the best solution for a rooftop or high garden,” says Freda.
