I like rooms…I like defined spaces…hence I’m not the biggest fan of a completely open floor plan. I like the idea dining in a dining room, living in a living room, reading in a library, doing work in a home office…not the biggest fan of doing everthing in one amorphous space (this aversion may be due to the fact that in my little house my living and dining are all in one…and I wish I had separate spaces).
Love this architectural solution pictured here…a floating dividing wall. In this flat (or…errrr…apartment…flat only crept in because of the Royal Wedding), the home owners have the best of both worlds…an open feeling floor plan with defined spaces. This dividing wall successfully separates the dining room from living room without making either space feel too closed in…a great solution for a small space perhaps. Plus, the wall gives residents the ability to hang more art!
What do you think? Do you like open floor plans? If so, why (I can be convinced to like them btw with a good argument)? If not, why not? Do you like this solution?
