What should I add, but I am always thinking that I am missing somethin

That is the interior map that I drew for my costumer. But I am thinking I am missing something.

That is one weird shaped house!
But nevertheless, I'd open up the 'party room' and 'computer room' or at least use large glass sliding doors on them, so the upstairs hallway has some light (if there are windows in that room?). And be careful not to make too many 'nooks' for your functions. And the bathroom blocks off all of the garden, is that done on purpose? And does the customer want his/her kitchen along a wall like that or is it a good idea to pull it more into the room with an island?

That is why he has blocked the garden off - he has to stay in the dark.

I think if this is something you intend to show your client - you should invest in a CAD programme as this does look a little like something a client could do themselves?

Everyone knows about the iconic "Falling Water"; this would be known as the "Blob House" .. everything would cost more, because of the odd shapes of the rooms. Are those different houses, or different elevations of the same house (how could that be, if they're not the same shape?). In "the blob", why would you want to waste the views to the garden with a bathroom & laundry, rather than living spaces where peope could enjoy the relaxing view? What's all the empty space around the circular staircase? In the 2nd layout with the hexagonal space in the middle, it's as if rooms are just scattered around without any thought to purpose; a dedicated "party room" flanked by 2 bathrooms? really?!

You should always flank a dedicated party room with as many bathrooms as possible, preferably the kind that hose themselves clean after every visit.

Perhaps he's a caterpillar or slug who lives in the mushroom and eats cabbages after a dip in the pool?

What is that space between the laundry & kitchen? Are those walls that seem perpendicular to the outer wall? What do you do with that triangular space, between that area .. which seems to have a door in it .. and the laundry wall?!

@OnePlan, fancy CAD program can't help this. Bad going in, bad comes out. I assume this is just a conceptual diagram? Scary Stuff.

You couldn't possibly show this to a "costumer" You will need to rethink this and redraw this first, in scale. What are you really doing?

The house seems really big but the space is not well utilized. i think it would have been better to have the door to the bathroom on the side next to the laundry, so that you can put the space between the bathroom, living room and stairs to another use.

KPO'B and NND - this guy is not for real - he is only here to stir everyone up.

One Plan - my 7 year old grand could draw better than that.

Now that you indeed have the Houzzers "stirred up" may I suggest what is missing is of course a library (and a "drawing" of your second floor). You might consider adding a conservatory, an office and a dedicated media room. Surely these can be squeezed in somewhere as you have shown you're not afraid of pushing the boundaries, so to speak.

P.S. I couldn't help but notice that your laundry room is larger than your pool. Maybe this should be tweaked also. Do you plan to take this drawing to a professional designer? It might not be a bad idea. In fact it seems the only thing that can be done with this drawing.
