Cool!

I really like the way your living room design is focused on the TV. A narrow room with two opposing walls is the way to go. One wall for the couch and one wall for the TV. I really hate being in houses where the TV is miles away from the couch or even worse, where the couch and the TV are at right angles.

Just as I hate houses where the living room doesn't have two opposing walls. E.g. one wall has the front door in the middle of it, one wall is open to the kitchen/dining room and one wall has the path to the stairs or hallway so it's impossible to put a 3 seater couch up against the wall without blocking access to something (in a really big room the couch can go near the middle but the average sized room is getting smaller all the time).

Anyway, kudos for coming up with a very practical layout. What's it for? Is it for your course? Is it for a house you're planning to build?, etc.

Is the open space in the top left corner a balcony? A patio? Is this design for an apartment? For a unit? A holiday home? Is it freestanding or attatched? Is it meant to be at ground level or up a building?

I find this all very interesting :)

Oh wow that music is amazing! Can you recommend more music? :)

I think the long-forgotten compositions of Leroy Anderson should be listened to anew by a new generation.

Thanks for being interested :D I study architecture, and I'm very interested in houses (specially interior spaces) and most of people look down at it in university, at least here in Brazil. Like it was less serious field.

It's for my course. It's a second house on top of a already existing house (that's why I don't have much credit for the layout, because the structure already existed so I needed to conform within it). As it's near the university, the owner plans to build an apartment to rent for students (we don't have student housing at university here).

It's a balcony, also can be used as laundry (I noticed that in Europe laundry machine is often in the kitchen or bathroom, for people here this is very weird and they often put it on a separate space or in the backyard, even if it's together with a social area. I don't know how it is in USA). I think it's too big, but it needed to be that way because of the structure. This direction takes more sun, so as it is open, the kitchen will take more sun as well, which is nice because my area is a coldish during the winter. (The kitchen also needed to be in that location because of structural reasons, mostly because it need to be as cheap as possible – the focus of the project is on low income houses, so there will be no need to extend the hydraulic system).

I never understand those rooms with TV where there isn't a comfortable point to watch the TV.

this is more or less how the house will look at the outside – I didn't decided about the roof yet, and maybe I'll change something, from now, I just replicated the first story facade. The model is very poor, I'm trying a new software and I can't do things properly yet, I have no idea how to connect the stair railings with the balcony. And there is no context (just the big wall that is the neighbor building)

here is the actual house, they already started to build the second story, but they abandoned it for a while. we are going to demolish that front part because otherwise it wouldn't fit a stair (there is a corridor on the side that was supposed to be 150cm large, so it would fit a stair, but the neighbor just build the house outside his limit – it's quite common this sort of thing in low income neighborhoods because people just build things without any technical assistance or government approval).

Rinsed and conditioned my skull wig, sent a letter to a support worker, had a fifteen minute stroll around an industrial ghetto area I like exploring in the dark when I can get myself out, began sketching some kind of cavernous scene with my pencils that I ain't touched in months due to low mood, let myself read for a bit which I've found hard to do lately, that's quite a decent innings for me! :P

I finished drawing the forehead of an eagle, and cooked a nice pie for dinner.
