“Architecture Magic” features an apartment building in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco that has recently been remodeled to include four car parking spaces while maintaining the historical Victorian facade.

The building was designed by Beausoleil Architects. From the Beausoleil architectural blog:

The bottom floor of the building, a historic Victorian apartment house, had a hodgepodge of storage rooms, utility spaces and an ancient studio apartment shoehorned between a dozen wood posts. The original brick foundations were underfoot. The project structural engineer, Don David of Double D Engineering determined that as part of upgrading the seismic strength of the structure they could get rid of the columns and the partitions, build new concrete footings, and create a clean open garage space.
