Secretly Modern: Low-Profile Houses
It can be tough fitting in, but these clever, unobtrusive homes manage to fit a dose of modernism into the nooks and crannies left over from piecemeal urban expansion, or by gently settling into their scenic locales.
When converting a 93 square-foot boiler room in San Francisco
