I came across an image of someone who did this on one of the German forums, I saved it as I liked the idea, if I manage to find the original source I'll link it but have attached it so you can see what I'm talking about. I think if you did that plus the roof idea you would end up with a fantastic cage - although it would take up a huge amount of space
This is a double Detolf for a Robo, it also has a high lid like you need for a Syrian, but the person took it off for the photo:

If the Detolfs are the same colour, you can almost can't see where they're attached (with aquarium silicone). The frame is also removed and the glass is instead attached with aqua silicone.

All you need is a bit of plexiglass or a thin wooden board for the gap in the bottom, but with a high lid this would make a great habitat for a Syrian as well.
