This floor plan in particular unit has the split bathroom, with the toilet and sink on one side and the shower with a 5 foot vanity on the other!
I often prefer walking into a dedicated foyer first instead of a kitchen or busy living space. Something about the division of space makes the floorplan feel bigger. Shortly past the enterance is a laundry room deep enough to store your cleaning products…with some room to spare for a broom and mop!
