A hot, little dividing wall.

THIS 8-FOOT-WIDE WALL BOTH divides and heats. On the living room side, a wood-burning stove nestles between two tile-covered wood-storage bins, on top of a seating peninsula. On the kitchen side, the wall again is equal parts practicality and show, with shallow storage shelves on the upper portion and tile-lined alcoves below. Sometimes, owner Mary Beth Horton uses the warmed alcoves for letting bread dough rise.

For fire safety, the wall is framed with metal studs and covered with concrete backer board. Design: Portland architect Jerry L. Ward.
