Life at № 42
The total (interior) floor area is 125 m2. Compact, but enough for three bedrooms and an open plan living area. After much erasing and moving imaginary walls in my mind, these are my two favourite ideas. The diagonal lines are areas that give access to the rest of the building so you can ignore those spaces.
Main Advantages: open plan space, floors all on one level
Disadvantages: master bedroom only has a shower room, limited storage, you walk straight into the living room
Advantages: kitchen uses wall at strange angle (otherwise useless space), master bed has larger bathroom + walk in closet. you walk into a hallway.
Disadvantages: feels smaller because kitchen is semi-enclosed (but also more private and also at the entrance making it more practical), floors on two levels (steps down from the kitchen and hallway)
Obvious problem in both designs is no guest wc.
