    i think a separate lighting zone for the sewing 
area would be useful. maybe also for the northwest 
area too. 
    note the light switches very near the elevator 
entrance and the main stair entrance both control 
a single light above the elevator entrance--the idea 
is to extend the circuit so the switches also control 
a light above the main stair entrance and at least 
one light above where the desk sits, possibly an 
additional light toward the cooking area and another 
toward the western main area. 
    the purpose is mainly safety--a way to turn on 
sufficient light to find other light switches.
