NOTTING HILL MAISONETTE No 1Eclectic Dining Room, London
The tapered staircase is formed of laminated oak and was supplied and installed by SMET, a Belgian company. It matches the parquet flooring, and sits elegantly in the space by the sliding doors.
Structural glass balustrades help maintain just the right balance of solidity, practicality and lightness of touch and allow the proportions of the rooms and front-to-rear views to dominate.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Create a flexi spaceThis open-plan living room and kitchen space has been created from the framework of two separate rooms, and the inclusion of tall pocket doors between the the two areas allows for the space to be returned to its original layout in an instant, with the doors filling in the area where a dividing wall would have been. By taking the doorframe right to the ceiling and as far out to the edges of the room as possible (doubling up the pocket doors to allow for this), the room is almost completely open-plan when the doors are pulled back.

What Houzz users are commenting on:
This would be a fantastic idea from kitchen to the formal dining room so there’s that idea of separate formal dining room but also creates the illusion of an “open space” formal dining and kitchen. And the same for the family area and the formal loving space.
could and should we have similar to have potential of dividing lounge and kitchen dining area? useful for if lots of washing up to maintain peaceful feeling in lounge in eves? Also useful for dividing different needs as kids grow older
