Amanda Pollard added this to How to Design a Broken-plan Space1 Mar 2019

Fit a central fireplaceTry using a fireplace as a way to break up a space, rather than tucking it in a corner or plonking it in the middle of an existing wall. “A fireplace positioned strategically can define an area, but needn’t interrupt flow,” Teo says. “A double-sided fire connects and separates spaces at the same time.”

Kate Burt added this to 10 Design Questions to Ask About Knocking Down a Wall15 Feb 2018

What if I don’t want it to be just one space?When knocking down a wall, you don’t have to remove all of it. Often, the most successful open-plan spaces still have defined areas within them. Constructing partial walls is the ideal way to maintain a sense of flow and interaction while creating ‘zones’. Stud walls are a simple way to build such divides, as they’re a timber batten frame covered in plasterboard and finished with plaster, and can be as high or wide as you wish. A two-sided fireplace, as seen here, is another idea.Forget open-plan – explore ‘broken-plan’ living

Kate Burt added this to How to Divide an Open-plan Space With a Half-wall9 Nov 2017

Warm both sidesThe divider is vertical rather than horizontal in this home. Again, it creates more intimate areas within an open layout. The bonus here is the inset fireplace, which is double-sided and a cosy focal point for this seating area and the other one beyond. The log store alongside is a winner, too. It’s functional, of course, but it also allows glimpses from one space to the other, maintaining the open feel.

Divide with a fireplaceHere, a large open-plan living area has been neatly divided with the addition of a tall fireplace with see-through glass doors either side, allowing a line of sight from one side to another while clearly dividing up the space into two living areas – a main seating area on this side and a smaller snug behind. The neat firewood ‘wall’ next to the fireplace is a practical addition, as well as providing another division between the two spaces.Tempted by a broken-plan scheme?
