Grilled to order: The art of outdoor kitchens

At the 202-unit Niche 905 Apartments, Chicago,  FitzGerald Associates Architects designed an 18th-floor roof deck featuring a large communal grilling station adjacent to smaller individual grills and private dining areas with family-style tables.

The glass enclosure “helps the space feel more like a room and makes it more intimate,” said FitzGerald’s Kristen Larkin. Photo: C360 Images, Jim Tschetter
