Hole in the wall opens up the hall.

Adding a cutout in this dining room wall made the hallway space behind it much more useful: the area is still a passageway to the back yard (there's a glass door behind the curtain at left), but it also works as a breakfast bar, a kitchen library, and a serving pass-through for the adjacent dining room.

Architect Neil Stanton Palmer of Sans Pedro, California, tiled the botoom edge of the cutout so it could be used for both eating and serving. Counter and cutout opening are framed in oak.

On the opposite wall of the passage area, oak-slatted bookcases provide attractive storage for a sizable collection of cook books. The back supports are screwed to the studs through the wall's stained cedar paneling.
