The uniqueness of the furniture affected the project’s plan & the conceptual design of the project. The space was too narrow to accommodate a small living room and dining room furniture; therefore, the living room furniture is used for the dining area as well. The furniture can be moved around the living room space per the customer needs; for accommodation use, to watch TV and can be moved to the kitchen area. two shelves were hung on the living room wall for art books, magazines and artifacts.
