WOMB WITHOUT VIEW
13 X 18 OVAL RECALLS EGG = WOMB= REGUG + COMFORT - AUX LIVING FUNCTIONS IN ALCOVES OFF CENTER SPACE

Solution

TWO OVALS INTERSECT =- THE MAIN LIVING SPACE NOW FLANKED BY A DECENT WORKING KITCHEN - 12 PEOPE FOR DINNER NEEDS A PLACE TO PREPARE THE FOOD - WITH A FULL SIZE CHEF RANGE REFRIGERATOR FREEZER AND A LOT OF WORKING COUNTER SPACE - I PROPOSE A CENTER ISLAND SO EARLY ARRIVERS CAN GATHER AROUND AND HELP WITH SETTING THE TABLE, OPENING THE WINE, ;MAKING THE MARTINIS, MASHING THE POTATOES TOSSING THE SALAD, SETTIING OUT THE CANAPES, KIBITZING, ETC - THE ISLAND AHS TWO SINKS - PREP AND CLEAN UP AND BARTENING THERE IS AMPLE PANTRY STORAGE AS WELL AS POTS PAND SERVING DISHES, MIXERS, GLASSWARE, DISHES, SILVERWARE, VASES CANDLE STICKS COFFEE CUPS, DESERTS 

AND WHEN THE FOOD IS SERVED AND THE PLACE IS AN UNHOLY MESS, A PARTITION RISES WITHIN THE CENTER ISLAND AND BLOCKS OFF THE ENTIRE ISAND LEAVING ONY A SERVER COUNTER FACING THE DINERS - SIMPLE FOLDING DOORS THEN CLOSE OFF EACH SIDE WHILE PROVIDING EASY ACCESS FOR COFFEE AND DESERTS ETC - THESE SIMPLE HIDING MECHANISMS SERVE WE;LL FOR BUSINESS CONFERENCES - I ALSO INCREASED THE DESK SPACE AN SET IT OVERLOOKING THE MAIN WINDOW OF THE STREET IN RESPONSE TO GRAHAM'S UPDATE OF THE BRIEFING

AND SINCE THE SPACE IS REALLY PART RESTAURANT AND PART OFFICE, I DECIDED THAT GRAHAM NEEDS A PRIVATE RETREAT FOR HIS OWN - SHICH CONTAINS HIS BED AND HIS PERSONAL LAVATORY FOR HIS TOILET, TOUPEES, FALSE TEETH, MEDICINE ETC THAT IS NO ONE ELSES BUSINESS - - ALSO A NICE NEAT QUIET PLACE TO FLEE THE WILD MESS OF A REALLY GREAT DINNER PARTY
