Victoria Harrison added this to Is Open-plan Living Over or is it Here to Stay?
What is open-plan?The UK dictionary definition of an open-plan space is ‘having no or few dividing walls between areas’. Generally, this refers to the main living areas of the home – i.e. the kitchen, living room and dining room – which are combined to create an open, flowing layout with few internal walls and fewer traditional individual rooms in favour of a communal living space. (Bedrooms and bathrooms can, of course, technically be open-plan, but for the purpose of this feature, open-plan refers to the main living areas of a home.)German architect Bernhard Kurz says, ‘[In Germany], there’s a strong tendency towards open-plan living. It’s been a request in almost all of our renovation projects – in some cases to a greater and in others to a lesser extent. But it generally refers to living rooms, dining rooms and the kitchen – home offices and bedrooms are still preferred as separate, smaller rooms.’

What Houzzers are commenting on:

Paul Urwin added this to Ideas
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.

Lot's of light here - not open plan - yet you can travel or 'see' through to other spaces...
