Private houses on roofs of skyscrapers

The engineering mind made it possible to place trees, parks, pools, shopping centers on top of skyscrapers. But what about private houses? Are there any skyscrapers that have cottages on top of tall buildings and is this possible?

Large buildings like these are more suitable than the small surface of the roof of a skyscraper.

In fact on the first Sao Paulo skyscraper, Edificio Martinelli, the builder built his own mansion at the top of the building. He lived there for some time. If you put in google images "mansao martinelli" you will find the "3-stories house".

A wealthy and mentally disturbed member of the Communist Party of the People's Republic of China recently constructed a shantytown on the roof of a Beijing plattenbau (without permits).

Ridiculous idea, to build a house atop a skyscraper. There's one in NYC too, isn't there?

These ones in HK may be shantytowns, but they are not on top of highrises.

That is a funny one, unless you're living right below it.
I heard this was probably illegal and that it will have to be removed?
