Do you think Plan A or Plan B is the better floorplan?
An impossible question to answer - it depends on the household, the climate, the orientation, the neighbours and the street. Both plans have their pros and cons, and respond to their environment in different ways. Plan A shows more information about how the external spaces work and integrate with the interior spaces, Plan B shows how the roof structure works and gives a few clues to how the elevations will look. Other Houzzers may have a preference but their preferences will be based on their own household needs, and their past experiences - not yours.
Best of luck,

Help with floor plan decision - A or B???
Floor-plan feedback/ideas needed -What do you think of this floor-plan
Is this a bit of deja vu???.... IMO both concepts are (still) arguably unbalanced in terms of building program to site. Putting a whole lot of architectural/building articulation issues aside the glaringly obvious thing missing for a growing family brief scenario is having a designated 2nd living zone/teenagers retreat/playroom zoned with the kids bedrooms. What you have in both options are kind of versions of the same, relatively large homes with essentially one singular living zone. When we deal with residences/project brief at this scale (5 Bedrooms +) it makes sense for maximising living flexibility (over the different/evolving stages of family life) that you have 2 separated living zones...and no a theatre room next to the main living room or associated with etc master area doesn't count/work in this way...what i mean is a rumpus or a playroom that is in a different "wing" or zone so you can properly separate adults and kids or adults and teenagers when required. Sure keep the centralised main living, but options of function are always positive........
But as always nobody should tell anyone how they should be living - this stuff always comes down to understanding and prioritising your various living requirements and at the end of the day it's your own personal opinion and not necessarily right or wrong, or "better".....it's what suits YOU and your needs most appropriately/effectively
best of luck! PD :)
