For this brief we must create a piece of concept art whether that be digital or traditional on an an area that is near the top of the building or whatever the structure may be, that has a person or something else inhabiting it.
The main focus is to try and encapsulate what the character is like without actually seeing the character. So the environment is doing the talking which means that everything there should be considered in meticulous detail, as it can tell the viewer something important about the character that you may not have intended.
A few places come to mind when thinking about the locations of the roof space. One is an abandoned aircraft carrier with the inhabitant taking refuge in the tower overlooking a decaying city.
Another is a building (possibly military) set in the future in low orbit above a planet overlooking the station/platform that it is on.
Or maybe a simpler one that is more down to earth with a derelict abandoned farm, or building within the city.
Here are some images I took a while back exploring abandoned buildings which gives me a good idea of an abandoned roof space.
