This house is truly amazing. I especially adore the tree growing through the center of the house.

Mullen Street House
Bernal Heights, San Francisco
The quiet, sunny location of this difficult site generated a wholly unique arrangement of space, not typical to the city-- a San Francisco house where the main ideas expressed are transparency, sunlight, and a direct connection to nature. The house will integrate photovoltaic panels, a sod roof, and 25' timber bamboo growing through the house.
