A mall building in the shape of a U has a trellis roof that extends above the roof line and connects the U shape together. Mall is sprinkled. Does that section of trellis need to be sprinkled as well?
Define " trellis " slated roof? Solid roof ? Solid roof with a hole in the middle?? Or Other??
Combustible construction?? more than likely not?
Chairs, tables, trash cans underneath them???
Does it connect to the roof line of the building???
Or is it higher than the main building and not connected?
Not the best examples:

It appears we are talking about an NFPA 13 automatic sprinkler system that was required by the building code and/or NFPA 5000.
Sprinklers must be installed throughout the premises in accordance with Section 8.1.1 (1) of the 2016 NFPA 13.
Sprinklers are permitted to be omitted from areas specifically allowed in accordance with 8.1.1 (4).
It appears this trellis construction is an exterior projection of the building. Specific conditions in accordance with Section 8.15.7 of the 2016 NFPA 13 could permit the sprinklers to be omitted from under the trellis roof.
"Short and sweet" briefing of the requirements with the information provided.
