San Francisco Idea House

This unusual home in San Francisco is packed with ideas for living in style while being earth-friendly, too.

Click ahead for views of the interior spaces, including a contemporary courtyard complete with outdoor kitchen and vertical garden.

Rising three floors on a 50- by 75-foot corner lot the contemporary house incorporates colors that blend with the neighborhood's more traditional homes.

In the main house the living and dining areas and the kitchen are on the top floor to make the most of sunlight and city views.
