We're big fans of pocket and sliding doors, which allow a space to be sectioned off without blocking circulation, air flow, and views when you need them.

Shown above are examples from around the world—Spain, Sweden, Japan, and the U.S. Possibilities range from traditional pocket doors (which slide in an out of a gap in the wall) and custom-fitted sliding doors in opaque, slatted, or translucent materials.
