Heather and I started our schematic design phase by blocking out the spaces and placing them in the appropriate locations. We used the approximate square footage that we calculated during the area analysis, to help us determine how much space was being used. After placing our spaces we then decided how you people would circulate within the space. Next we established which spaces that are going to be public and private.
We added in this alternate layout because we were unsure about removing the existing staircase and now that we know that we have the option to remove it, we well most likely be using this layout.

note the level changes in the floor and ceiling, which reinforces our concept of funneling.
