WoodWoodWard Architecture created this contemporary home in 2012 for a client living in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

SPG Architects transformed an abandoned steel frame and concrete slab structure erected on a remote Costa Rican coastal hillside into a five-level, indoor-outdoor residence on a rain-forested mountainside overlooking the Golfo Dulce in Costa Rica.
Located on a rain-forested site that overlooks the Pacific Ocean, the 18,000 square foot house is “environmentally sensitive, technologically advanced, and modernist by design.
Although the structure was beautifully sited, it needed considerable re-thinking to become a viable and beautiful home. “
The Xian-Yen’s House is located in San Francisco, California.
This 3,500 sq ft two-unit residence was heavily remodeled in 2010 by Craig Steely Architecture.
According to Craig Steely, ” the extensive remodel of the house began by tearing away the substandard remodeling that had taken place over the past 100 years and replacing it with spaces more appropriate to the client’s program.
