For that, you would need much more floor space. Anyway, the small bedroom can still have a 2 person bed if I want to.

That smaller bedroom, for me I would just use it as a small study area and if there is still room I would put in one of those fold out sofa beds for my 1 or 2 guest/s.

The apartment looks like it has a good layout and it's a good size.

I have selected my flat mainly because of its floor plan (and large floor-to-ceiling windows and huge balcony). It has exposition ranging from south-east to west.

The bathroom was easily expanded to 5sqm with no major modifications. The small bathroom was changed into closet and expanded as well.

The Bathroom must have a window. Its good for venalation after I blow the place up, and also for getting all the mist out after a shower.

There is probably good air extraction. In that case no need for windows.

With a good exhausting system, that problem is eliminated. I'd rather have a bahtroom without view than have any other room but a garage or depot without a view,.

nice and simple plan, but I see no storage areas, so that is why you had to convert the small room into a closet?

Yes, and as I live only with my girlfriend there is no need for a smaller bathroom. Thanks to height of the flat - almost 3m - the closet is very useful with storage shelves up to the ceiling.
In the future however it can be easily converted to a bathroom again.

The ideal apartment has to have 3 distinct functional areas:Living,Sleeping and Service.Each zone should ideally be accessible from a central entrance foyer, and from each other.
This is a very good example imo of the perfect apartment:

I don't have any servants, but if I had enough money to buy this I probably would have some.

Here is a floor plan from 432 Park Avenue



What I like about it best is integration of the social part of the apartment (kitchen, living) and the integration of the private section (bed, bath, closet) without wasting space in between or corridors. Having a bath tub in front of the window tells me that whoever designed this knows what he is doing.

That's off course a floor plan for mortals. For those with a lot of trophy money in their pockets, there is always a whole floor. Took me whole minutes to take this one in

In the 432 Park Avenue I'll try to move the "visitors" WD and WC block to the right and make it more square, just beside the master bedroom dressing room. With that the small corridor to access the master bedroom will be even smaller and the Living Room will have a biggest surface.

Here is a floor plan I like a lot, mainly because it contains no corridors, leaving a smart and very integrated layout as a result.

I like this one if there's a door from the 'bath' area to the kitchen

I miss some more natural light in the kitchen. However all the rooms with natural light (living, dining and bedroom) need more that than the kitchen, so I miss an extra window. Better in the kitchen than in the bathroom.

I love the small floorplan of 432 park. It's clever and very efficient.
If I could aford the entire floor, I would probably merge quite a few smaller rooms and have a private cinema in there and a larger room for pool and snooker tables.

^ I am aware having more space is a luxury but there is a point where more space just becomes emptiness. I would feel rather lost in one of those. Personal cinemas and play rooms would just intensify that. Let's just say that the idea of having to clean 9 toilets would not be my kind of luxury.
