Floor Plan Studies
I found a website that explain  Floor Plan Fundamentals which i personally feel quite useful in my floor plan planning. I preferable with the axis floor plan layout because i can showcase my campaign medium (recycle building miniature) in the middle in order to attract audiences. I plan to make it open environment as possible since the branding is not well establish which peoples might have no idea what it is about.
