We design your house based on the idea of having a big open kitchen as the "Heart" of your home, with a thought that you would spend a lot of time being there. Therefore, we like to put it in the center of all circulations, move it next to living room, so it is easily accessible from the front door as well as sleeping zone. From kitchen you can enjoy the corner street view in the Pentagon room, while can also easily access the garden-view balcony. There is also a big island/breakfast bar in this white spacious bright kitchen, where you can have quick meal, enjoy drinks, or even do some work on this multipurpose island. Essentially, the kitchen is also a part of the living area, where you can host guests with bigger capacity.
We propose to move the entry door to living room, and open up the pentagon room into a bigger space. We place the wet areas (including the 3rd bath/laundry) in the middle (existing position), and put sleeping zone as well as studio/home office/guest room next to the balcony / inner courtyard. The master bedroom door is shifted a bit to the back so the guests can access the balcony and study room through hallway.
The studio room is quite special. It is basically always open, with built-in furniture and sliding doors on both sides, and serves as secondary living room or reading area. In the event of party, or having guests coming over, this place can be a more intimate gathering and conversation area where you and your guests can enjoy the quiet garden. Also, The studio can be occasionally closed and be a guest room (with double sofa bed). Essentially this room is very flexible, depends on how you want to segregate the space/the hallway. If you want, the studio room can also be the extension living/tv room of master bedroom - if there is no guest staying.
Master and secondary bedrooms are the most private zone, and still they are close to bathrooms. You can freely go to bathrooms, balcony, laundry and studio (for reading /studying/working) without being seen from the living day zone. There is a walk-in closet in the master bedroom.
As bonus, we create many built-in cabinet, storage and shelving storage all around the house.
For details, please refer to our floor plans, renderings, 3d plans, and section drawings. In our drawings, there are 3 options for floor plans, illustrating some possible alternatives in the living room (The changes are only involving seating are dining room), to emphasize that the pentagon room is very flexible. But the structure of kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, etc remains the same). The complete drawings / renderings are focusing on Option 1.
Hope that you enjoy our design. Please feel free to let us know if you have feedback or questions. Thank you and all the best with your home project!
