So cooling the living room and all the hallways between the entrance and hallways reading to the bedrooms and powder room and bathroom. 3. While I cook in the summer, it heats up the air and interferes with The Case for Rooms It’s time to end the tyranny of open-concept interior design. CityLab Kate Wagner some quotes from the above great article: "...If closed floor plans are considered such a nuisance these days, why did they prevail for almost 100 years in single-family working- and middle-class suburban housing?
