Situated in San Francisco, Xiao-Yen’s House is designed by Craig Steely Architecture in 2012. The lower apartment covers an area of 1500 sq. metres while the upper apartment covers an area of 2000 sq. metres. The extensive renovation of this house began by tearing away the layers of substandard remodeling that had accrued over the past 100 years.  The design called for a contemporary program that includes a more open plan for work and living, a sod roof, and a glass penthouse supported by a steel exoskeleton. The steel exoskeleton is part of a seismic upgrade that doesn’t tear the existing building apart. It also supports decks on 2 floors and a pack a bi-facial solar panels. Take a look at some of the images below
