The image shows how the saw-tooth roof design defines the areas underneath in a subtle fashion. The living area, under the first saw-tooth, is in the foreground. The dining area and kitchen are under the second saw-tooth, and the staircase is under the third and final saw-tooth at the rear.
Incorporating a living room, dining area and kitchen all together works well to open up a space and get rid of some walls. By eliminating the attic and raising the ceiling, the space is able to feel twice as large.

Industrial Wood Great Room and Kitchen With Lake View
Designing a home for one family can be a challenge, but designing a home to be shared by two brothers’ families? That’s another proposition altogether — and one architect Matthew Collins of Uptic Studios met with the help of an open layout. “The goal of the project was to create a modern log cabin on Coeur D’Alene Lake in North Idaho,” he explains. “Uptic Studios considered the combined occupancy of two families, providing separate spaces for privacy and common rooms that bring everyone together comfortably under one roof. And we not only had to take into account the space itself, but also all of the people who would be living there. One of the brothers in the family is a chef, so we kept that in mind when designing the open kitchen and living room. We made sure to create a common room just off the kitchen, to bring everyone together. A delicate balance of natural materials and custom amenities fill the interior spaces with stunning views of the lake from almost every angle.”
