I am sure that it started as a concept, and they forgot to update the name.

Ah, David Barr solves the mystery! It's Canadian for plan

As for pet peeves I am SO glad ActiveRain doesn't give points for them. Imagine the flood of posts and comments that would ensue. And then peeving about the peeves ...

Haha, I think when they say it it means that is the concept we went for and we achieved it. Thats just what it means to me though, never heard someone use it when a home was not open concept.

David Barr wrote "Open concept is a Canadian term from the Canadian produced TV shows on HGTV.  It means the same thing as open plan."

The term "open concept houses" has been used in Canada much longer than the HGTV shows.  We also have also concept schools going back many decades.
