Yeah I guess "mechanical rooms" is probably more generic

But the term is used to describe it. See letter c. below.

Free Dictionary definitions here:

pent·house (pnthous)
n.
1.
a. An apartment or dwelling situated on the roof of a building.
b. A residence, often with a terrace, on the top floor or floors of a building.
c. A structure housing machinery on the roof of a building.

----------------------

Does seem like an oxymoron though, because the term "penthouse" connotes a top floor luxury unit...where "mechanical" connotes the grease and grime of elevator cables and whirring HVAC machines.
