The hearth plays a big role.

Part hearth and part divider, this irregularly shaped partition separates living and dining areas from the kitchen without closing in any of the rooms. Replacing two interior walls that had split the space into three distinct rooms, the 70- by 104-inch divider includes a 14-inch-high platform for a cast-iron woodstove.

Behind the stove, the zig-zagging partition helps support major roof beams. Above the partition, a white-painted shaft bounces light from clerestory windows down into the room. Behind the partition is a new L-shaped kitchen. Architect was Paul Bessieres of San Francisco.
