While I do understand his concept/goal, the expense of moving the walls would be excessive. Also, would like to have seen more detail as far as lighting placement, materials, colors, etc.
By far most original exterior design concept, and it's clear you took a lot of care and consideration in the design. However, I'm not sure it's that practical, both because of construction costs and because of not having a true front door, for instance. Interior details I see being problematic the laundry room inside of the second bath and an isolated kitchen.
Beautiful design and elevation. I love your ideas. You are clearly a very talented architect. You were one of the favorites of friends and family. In this case it just came down to preference in floor plan. Thank you so much for submitting! I really appreciate your efforts.
