Low wall divides but does not clutter space
this sends up as a server type divider.. but if you have the fireplace on the other wallp- this could be a good use for the area.
Wow.. this is kind of cool , just thinking that the divider doesnt have to be white
building casework of some kind might be a though. We'd have to check measurements of room first.
This might be one of my favories. This is super clean. Looks great.. gives a visual divide but does not look corny like fake columns.
Clean and modern. Not the jail, but nice strong architecture
book case style. Square columns
I dont like the detailing, but they opened the space on both ends and kept the middle area closed.
Abstractly. If you ' cased' the stair and had a low wall to the side, this might emphasize the stair.. ( safer for old folks) yet keep it open
How it might look with some casing .. but mostly open?
Low wall idea
Wow.. now here's a railing!
Another great cased idea
Abstract this. Case the stair. Case/ column near wall .
Nothing but there is a column near the actual stair side. Maybe this helps put the visual there.
