Home tour- YouTube's founder San Francisco penthouse!

The cofounder of YouTube, Steve Chen is a super-techie and super wealthy. He stayed on as chief technology officer after it was bought by Google. Surprisingly down-to-earth, his San Francisco home, a duplex penthouse has few display of objects and materials and there's virtually no art. Sophisticated gadgetry is neatly concealed. Now, Steve shares his 3,200-square-foot-unit home with his wife, Jamie Park, Google's former product-marketing manager and their baby boy. Let's take a look at his modern and minimalistic home.












A beautiful home that oozed modern minimalism with sophistication, this home does not feel stark or cold, thanks to the addition of wood elements throughout. My favorite spaces are the kitchen and the bedroom. Do you have a favorite too?
