rooftop shoot for two outdoor scenes

I'm a film student. I'm interested in your beautiful rooftop to shoot my short. It is a 6 mins short, and I have two outdoor scenes to shoot. The first scene will be shot in daytime, which is a short scene about the main character buys an invitation ticket. The second scene will be shot in the nighttime, which is about two characters sitting on the bench and having a conversation. I really love your painted wall, and I want to use it as my both scenes background.
