this project isn't one that I would describe as rooftop living, but it is a live competition:

housing in Auxerre: 40 new-build units. social housing on 2-levels, with habitable attic areas and garaging at ground-floor level. phase I: 12 units. selected firms receiving 4 000 EUR.
THE CLIENT: Office public municipal d'HLM d'Auxerre, 12, avenue des Brichères, BP 357, F- 89006 Auxerre. Tel.: 3 86 72 59 00. Fax: 3 86 72 59 39. details: M. Jean Freyssinier, tél. 3 86 72 59 27.
application by 21.11.2002 (17.00).

They may be prepared to send you the brief (if you ask them in French).

In London, the question of 'rooftop living' certainly came up some twenty years ago when blocks of flats were allowed to develop their roof areas, and many landlords took advantage of this to build new floors on top of existing blocks.
