When an old house was opened up to incorporate a separate bedsit, it resulted in differing floor levels for a new kitchen/dining area.
A workbench/dining/meeting table is built across the split level concrete floor.
A gap in the joinery unit allows two sliding doors to separate the bench from the dining table. This gives a breakfast bar in the kitchen with a private meeting area on the other side of the sliding doors.
Opening up the whole table allows 13 people to dine comfortably.
