How to Create a "Door" in Noisy Loft?

Good Questions

Q: I just moved into a loft with my partner, and the opening to the bedroom is right next to the kitchen / living area. There's no door and there's another opening to let light in across the top of the wall. As you can imagine, these openings also let in a lot of sound. What is a good way to solve the noise/privacy issue regarding the door while working around the pipes and 18 ft ceilings? What is a good way to solve the noise issue regarding the "window" at the top? Also trying to figure out a way to let light in when we want it during the day, but not while I'm trying to sleep at night and he's in the common area with lights on?
