Two peninsulas create an entertainment center.

Two peninsulas create an entertainment center

Back-to-back peninsulas define this beverage and entertainment center at one end of an open-plan living and dining room. The room is part of a larger remodel by Prats/Coffee Architects, Inc., of Culver City, California.

The couch peninsula is 36 inches high. The wet bar starts at 36 inches and steps up to 42 inches to make room for tall barstools. Underneath are a refrigerator, ice maker, and storage cabinets.

For the peninsulas' rounded ends, the designers scored and bent 3/8-inch plywood. They used stainless steel for the bar and beverage countertops, backsplash, and kickplates. White plastic laminate faces both peninsulas. The shallow shelf against the wall and the couch's rounded end provide display space for the owner's collection of art and artifacts.

Tile paves the television alcove and the raised hearth of the fireplace, which is angled toward the center of the room.
