Yes, the wall behind the couch is a cast-in-place concrete wall.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 9 More Ways to Lighten Up Your Design
Don't banish all of the toys to a box. Look closely among the perfectly composed arrangement of vases, photographs and books – there's an unidentified foreign object in the top right corner.
Another room in the residence designed by Ehrlich features built-in shelves cut into a wall below a clerestory window. Below is a built-in bench and additional storage behind wood doors. The level of care is consistent with the previous photo, but note that the character of the space is quite different, owing to the wall color and the way the built-ins are detailed.
Scheer & Co. added this to The High Life: Clerestory Windows
If you have a wall that wasn't originally intended to have windows (perhaps there's an unsavory view beyond?), clerestory windows may be the answer to your light-less woes.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Hunker Down With a Built-In Couch
Built-in couches are great for sneaking in seating in a streamlined fashion. By carving out a little niche in the built-in cabinetry, this area now benefits from an extra space to sit for a chat.
