Combining old and new architecture in one structure is hard. However, architect Craig Steely was able to make as he does the renovation of a Victorian house overlooking Eureka Valley in San Francisco. Aside from the outstanding renovation made, Craig Steely also have made the house sustainable as it can with the various green features the house has.
One of the many eco-friendly features is the kitchen that is well illuminated with the natural sunlight from the kitchen’s glass ceiling. In addition, the renovated Victorian house also has the façade made of reused wool strips, which obvious has reduced waste. Are you happy now with the eco-friendly feature this awesomely renovated house has? Hold your breath because there are more. Let us check the house roof and you would be delighted with the garden it has making it a planted roof. Residents of this home can surely grow their own herbs now and may some crops? One more thing, the house also has solar panels that collect solar energy while filtering the light coming in the house.
