A new backyard ― on the roof

For many couples with children, the desire for a spacious backyard forces them to leave the city. Not so for San Franciscans Reed and Jennifer Gosselin.

Architect pal Jonathan Feldman helped them replace part of their Victorian’s top floor with a green space, opening up the interior to light, views, and family-friendly flow.

Plus "it's a super-eco project," says Feldman, pointing out the reused cabinets and flooring, the solar photovoltaic array, and radiant floor heating.
