Pros • Provides measurements so builder can work from plan. • Thoughtfully incorporates post into kitchen bench. • Addition of deck creates enhanced opportunity to take advantage of view. • Skylight is a positive feature to brighten up living area (however, it probably makes more sense to place it on the North side of the house to lighten the kitchen in the morning, but be partially shielded from strong afternoon sun). • Seemed to most closely follow design guide, including removal of interior staircase, enhancing view, incorporation of supporting post. • Presentation is good, including attractive graphics and explanations of key features. Cons • Bathroom design is not ideal in that the mirrors are along the exterior wall, so it’s a bit dim and not possible to use exterior light. • WC dimensions are too long and narrow. Seems dim and claustrophobic • It’s unclear why space is sacrificed in hallway, which might have been better used for larger linen closet, etc • Other than front deck, suggestions for improving the facade are not particularly elegant
Poor use of light at the front Like the use of the courtyard clever seating at the rear floorplans were difficult to read overall concept wasn’t very exiting didnt like the fact the bedrooms didnt have natural light
There are some great ideas here. I love the build around the TV and the color in the "kids" area. Thank you for these!
Thanks for the effort on this. We noticed the effort to include our instructions around drought tolerance and kid spaces.
Good design but too busy. Like the wall paintings.
Great job...excellent effort. Thanks!
overall, I like the thought that went into the design...would have liked to see "softer" walls with terracing and/or landscaping
We liked the back screened in porch and big family room in this entry. The roofline in the back is really pretty as well, and provides a nice, covered section of the deck which would be practical. In terms of negatives, we don't love the left side of the house when viewing the front elevation, and walking through the bedroom to the master closet is not ideal, though not terrible. Thank you very much for your submission.
Great design. Great use of open shelves, and cabinets. Only concerns are charging stations are a bit "clunky" and could use some more color.
The design offered the best maximization of day area and it provided a very practical configuration of the laundry area. We felt that the teenager's room was a little small but it is a very nice design. Thanks.
thanks for submission, master room and bathroom a bit small, and shape of bathroom is strange, thanks for the options.
I apologize for the delay. Competition was tough. You did however put in a lot of work in the development of the design. Thank you.
The design allows for the bathroom and laundry to be on the North side as requested. While it meets my requirements, I do not like having to go through the laundry to get to the bathroom. The addition of the bedroom on the South side makes the space more cramped but it's an idea.. I would prefer keeping the entire space open but that's easy enough for do decide on. What I really wanted was a layout for the bathroom/laundry. Thank you.
I find it suspicious that both submissions to my project are very similar, and both include palm trees. These designs are useless as I live in Tennessee.
This was a good effort. The style didn't have the look I was going for. The design didn't maximize the yard. I would have preferred there was one large grass area then broken up into little areas.
I love the way you took my ideas into consideration for the laundry room!
Good presentation, but I don't care for the flow as you use a lot of walls and dive up the space.
I like the idea for the kitchenette area and bathroom. That's practical, buildable, aesthetically appealing, and original. If this one wins, it will be for that area.
Dear Arc, Thanks for your participation to the Cocteau 2.0 challenge, the choice was tough to find out the most suitable proposal. Regards, Mikael.
This is very interesting. I prefer Option 2. I really like the placement of the bikes on the left, the planter, and the table in this version. However, I would straighten out the curved stairs to match the existing foot print, and remove those benches (although I appreciate how much you have packed into this small space, no one would use those benches because of their proximity to the garbage cans). My concern with both of these options is the brick awning. I think it will be difficult and expensive to build that. Thank you so much for giving two thoughtful options.
I really loved the vision we shared. It was great working with Arc 675 it was as if he had actually did a house call. I love all the details of his design. He asked all the right questions to ensure a perfect project.
What a fun design! I really liked how you kept children in mind in the design. I liked your choice of plants, but would have liked more plants from my list to be used. I also liked the pavers you chose for the pathway.
