Help needed with annexe layout and space utility 1000 sq feet


Hello guys I am working on a project for a newly married couple who wish to build an annexe in an existing garden space. 1000 sq feet is the space. The requirements on the ground floor are living, dining , kitchen, pantry, powder room for guest, study. The first floor needs master bedroom with small balcony, master bathroom, walk in closets, 2 small bedrooms with single bathroom shared, storeroom. The stairs would lead to the roof for roof access. I attach the dimensional shape and layout and will upload pictures of the garden space soon. Any help would be much appreciated as this is my first time undertaking such a project. 

The city is very hot in the summer months requiring air conditioning and 3-4 months of pleasant cool weather. Privacy is of importance as the husband has male guests over often and the wife does not wish to be disturbed while navigating the space between ground and first when needed.

Copy pasting my answer from your other identical thread:

Is this a school project or are you actually getting paid to design this space?  If it's the former, then that's you job as a student to put forth multiple versions of spaces until you decide on an intelligent combination that suits the project brief.  Then have fun with design elements.

If it's the later, then why are you accepting commissions when you rely on crowd-sourcing for your answers?

I too will copy and paste my answer from the other identical thread:

Go fuck yourself with a sharpened stick.

Hire an architect:

Funny that the OP wants to do this in the locality that close to where the PCATP is located. ( )

one critique: you handled the private vertical circulation requirements for the wife with a strange non-subtlety

Jawknee, I like that you took a picture with a scale in the background but clearly ignored it and just threw-up squigly lines for the 6th (!) floor level.

RickB-Astoria me laughing there and then read N.S.'s response and laughed even more.


Is that a bat signal?


i'm just surprised to see pakistan's construction industry also still measures in feet-inches.
