Can a sub-divided ground floor provide `open plan' living?

The client was interested in opening up the ground floor of their new home in Tower Hamlets. The ground floor of the house had a small living room, a centrally located WC and a protective corridor that wound across the plan in a spatially inefficient way.  We proposed to simplify the spaces with fire resistant glass screens, providing a protected lobby and two means of escape, while also allowing light into the centre of the plan.

3 Crittall style glazed screens unify the ground floor aesthetically while colour and material is used to differentate each space from one another.
