Architecture / July 2, 2018 /
Open floor plans increase social interaction. Whoever is in the kitchen doing the cooking or the post meal cleanup, can still get the job done while interacting with everyone else in the other rooms. This helps the kitchen person to feel less like a slave and more a part of the action.
Each room should be furnishable, preferably in more than one way. This will often require that windows be located in ways which appear informal and asymmetrical on the outside, but do not let outside symmetry dictate how a room is furnished.
