I need two floor plans for a family house.
1. Use the golden ratio theory (1:1.618) as a basis for sizing [login to view URL]
2. Flexibility to be rearrangement to a retirement house

Site, location and climate
The lot is 664 m2 (20 m X 33.20 m). The lot long axes is North-South, the south side is facing the main road (18 m wide) and a green park (60 m X 100 m). There are three neighbors; two from both sides and one from the back. There is a setback from both sides and the back of 2m and 4m from the street. The lot is located in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. Over the course of a year, the temperature typically varies from 10°C to 50°C and is rarely below 6°C or above 52°C.

Local homes are designed to have separate reception for each guest’ gender while keeping one dining area accessible from both receptions. Men and women will dine at different timing.

Design Requirements and criteria
The designer is requested to develop two floor plans; 500 to 600 m2 +/-10% for a family of couple and four kids; two girls and two boys. The place should be a future looking in term of look, design, and amenities. The whole lot should be covered with a ceiling except the setbacks (about 400 meters). However, not all the space under the ceiling is an indoor. The weather in our area is hot and humid almost all the year. To use any outdoor space it needs to be at least shaded. The shade can have skylights to allow for lighting. You could design different sides of the house independent from the other in one plan. For example, you could make the men reception and serves in one place, the sleeping section in one part and guests in another side of the lot. The second proposal is to keep the building as one block but integrate with the outdoor (ex S or E shape). Living areas, receptions, and activities areas should be maximized on the expense of the private and sleeping ones. Girls should share one room and one bathroom and boys share another ones. In addition to the master bedroom.

Ideas that I read and I liked
3. Gone are the days where every room had a door and four walls. Instead of traditional rooms, there are now implied spaces
4. Homes are including more and more spaces that have less defined purposes. Modern architects are now designing flex rooms with the ability to easily transform into a new area
6. The correct scale may incite a feeling of intrinsic connection to the dwelling
7. Timelessness, contrast, materiality, scale, movement, brand, daylight & view, details, layers, and art are elements of good design
8. Larger windows add beauty to a room by bringing the view of the outdoors in
10. master suites on the main floor
16. Lookup, please; emphasis on elaborate ceiling detail. When you walk into a space, where do your eyes go first? They go straight, out then you look up
18. Kids are tech-savvy; between video game consoles, smartphones, tablets and laptops, families own more gadgets than ever, hence the trend toward home charging stations
19. Kids are messy; most houses today are designed with a laundry room, but, to truly make this a family-friendly feature, experts recommend morphing it into a mudroom/laundry combo with its own outside entrance or one adjacent to a garage
20. Kids eventually grow up; when they move changes their bedroom to study, media room, craft room or yoga studio
22. Consider window placement; a strategically-placed set of six or eight foot windows can have just as much impact and be far more economical. Small windows under cabinets and above countertops are becoming increasingly popular. A bay window in a small dining area will make it seem much larger. Additional windows that act as an eyebrow above the main window (known as Palladian windows) can add character to a home
23. Game rooms and home theaters have surged in popularity

Enough storage areas should be considered in the design preferably close to each section of the house.

      I have checked it. You have a lot of lost space in the hallways. The rooms are huge, no theme for the house, no views, no shaded outdoors

    I have checked it. I saw lost spaces in the hallways. The room sizes were huge. I couldn't find a theme to the house. There are no views, no court yards, and no outdoor that is shaded.

    Hi, do you want your house to have just ground floor or maybe ground floor + 1st floor?

      I need total indoors of about 500-600 m2 and the allowed built area in the ground floor is 400 m2. Keep in mind that some space of the ground floor needs to be design as an outdoor (S or E shape).

    The house needs at least two entrances. I don't need all the built area of the ground floor to be indoors. The second floor should take advantage of the park cross street.
