Living Room

Column-flanked bookcases create a visual definition of the living room and new front entry. The new open staircase adds a sculptural element to the space.

proportions? - I love the entire design of this "pass-through" between rooms. Might you share the measurements of the book shelves (height, width and depth), the column's width, the opening, and the overall cased area? Approximations would be a-ok too! Thank you!

This is very similar to what I was thinking for redirecting the front entry and creating a Parlor like they had when the American Foursquare was popular.
