What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Glass Box Architecture Endures
The relationship between indoors and out here is emphasized through the glass walls and the interior wood elements.
Adding perpendicular beams that run from ceiling to floor is a visually arresting way to add geometric dimension to a room. This angular space is crowned by an intriguing low ceiling with artistic cut-outs and embedded lighting, doubling as overhead art.
Margaret Everton added this to Use the Power of Geometrics
In this sleek and modern dwelling, the open space showcases the lines, adding rhythm to the expanse. From the tract lighting to the slim beams to the open shelving, this room is as light as it is intricate.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Instant Living Spaces
Don’t feel like dividers need to take up a lot of space: This low-level shelf with floor-to-ceiling poles gets the job done in a contemporary and unique fashion.
Give the illusion of privacy. "This room divider hangs off of steel pipe columns to create an open separation between the living room and the family room of a loftlike living space," says Margaret Griffin of Griffin Enright Architects. "The floating shelf provides more privacy when seated and appears more floating when standing."As for materials, "The shelf is made of birch, as is the ceiling," she says, "and the steel pipe column is painted with a hammered-gray Hammerite paint, and it matches the flooring, which also emphasizes the floating quality of the shelf."
I've looked at how bringing light from two sides has been seen to be socially conducive while also having sustainable benefits. While that ideabook focused on windows, one situation that I've grown to appreciate is when light from windows on one or more walls is balanced by light coming from a skylight. Even large windows, like those here, can leave parts of a room dark, requiring artificial lighting for more even lighting. Skylights can bring more natural light (more direct, depending on the time of the day) to deeper parts of a house and its rooms.
