You might have to look twice at this photo to see all the see-through elements. This space fits a dining room, a living room, a stairwell, a kitchen and a balcony. Why doesn't it looked like a crowded dorm room? See-through storage. Open shelving divides the dining room from the entryway yet leaves the sight lines open all the way to the stairs. The open banisters upstairs add to the light and the feeling of open yet distinct spaces.
