Michael again. What do you think about this one?

Supposed to be a very modern house. The floor plan takes some inspiration from a house in NY, which was posted here some time ago. That house is more classical. I just took the plan and changed it.

2-story (I was thinking 3, but not sure) grand foyer with two stairs, behind these are two closets. To the left a large room and a library. To the right a dining room, bar and a smaller sitting room. You also have a 2-story room, a second room and a large multi-purpose room, can be gallery, ballroom and used for much more. Large kitchen with breakfast corner and a smaller family room. A hall with coat room and half bath, and from here you can access the long gallery to the second building (not yet planned) with garages and guest rooms with baths.

Second stairs takes you to all levels, and there is an elevator also.

In a modern house, I like the idea with little doors between the rooms. What do you think about this?

    It’s nice that you’re getting into homeplans but,

    I suggest getting some grid paper, it will make it much easier to get proportions correct. Also making a house symmetrical is very difficult, you will almost kill yourself trying to make everything the same on both sides. In some spaces you have them labeled “room”, this is a waste of space considering the room doesn’t have a specific purpose, the room to the left of the foyer could be a music room, and the room to the left of the grand room I guess could be the master closet. Although that’s a HUGE closet.

    If you really want to make nice, livable plans. I suggest you start small and move up from there.

    I had some difficulties translating some things from Swedish to English. Got tired, so just wrote room. The master suite is not on the ground floor, it will be one floor above.

    Yeah, starting small is a good thing to do. I started out a bit too big, I know. But more fun to try and do more expensive homes.

    as an architect, i have to say it is a good start, but you have way to many “rooms”. Every room needs a certain purpose, otherwise it will be rarely used. Thats why formal living and dining rooms are going out of style these days. Now, most people do not need multiple rooms for practically the same purpose.

    • Yeah, I had a problem translating some things to English. I got annoyed and wrote only “room” 😀
