Since there was so much wonderful participation in the last two of these, I thought I might post my own. See the attached.
The room is 9′-6″ x 17′-10″ with a tall 9′-6″ ceiling, and no windows, unless you count the large triple-panel patio door at one end. Approach from entry is as shown.
The challenge is to get a “high end look” kitchen into the R side of the space, and leave sufficient space where Brian is standing for a dining table and six chairs. The dotted line is the considered “division” between the living room and this kitchen/dining space.
A few things seem to be gotta-haves by the clients: a pro-looking range hood, the MW as an under-the-counter drawer (Sharp and Dacor are the only two I know), an apron “farmhouse-type” sink, and a counter-depth fridge, preferably the expensive integrated (read: Sub-Zero) type.
The only way to vent a pro hood is to go out the wall that has the patio door in it. This is a condo, and the 17’10 wall is common with the next one.
Sharpen your mouses (should I have said “mice?”), and begin, now!
