You want to design a bungalow, and your looking for ideas on how to arrange spaces near each other.

First idea, define what you want the bungalow for. Do you want to live in it, cook in it, sleep in it, bath in it, wash your cloths in it, or satisfy an assignment, from your teacher.

Second idea, brain storm any of the points of the first idea, and write them down.

Third idea, divide up the 24 hours of the day to the activities you would spend in each of the rooms of the bungalow, and place the least amount of time spent in (room) the furtherest away from the room where you spend the most time in (thats how I would line then up).

Fouth idea, Give credit where credit is do, unless you send lots of money for the ideas presented so you become the owner of the ideas.

Lessons learned, and observations made: your a second year student, you should be trying every possible way of designing anything you want, the way you want, for what ever reason you want. Too harness you creative passion at this time is a big waste of energy. You will have plenty of time to reign in the creativity later, when you actually go to build something.

Asking others for this type of help is setting yourself up for big problems. If you were led astray by any of the idea above, and you have claimed them as your own then you are liable, if you use the idea in a paper or assignment, with out giving proper credit, then you plagiarizing someone elses work. I do not know about you but as for me, if I 'm to fail at something I want it to be because of my own mistakes, not someone elses, the same applies for seceding.

You are in the sand box, design every sand bungalow you can, after every design, look at it, examine it, critique it, then record it, the changes you made, and the reasons you made them. record what was bad about it and why it was great. Wash away the old idea, start fresh and grow from the experience.

"Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity" -Charles Mingus (1922-1979); American jazz musician and composer

Hope this help your bungalow design. I look forward to seeing your take on the bungalow. Please keep us posted
