What rooms to include in upstairs layout?

3 days ago

We are building a custom 2 story home and can only have 1430sqft on the top floor due to town restrictions. Optimally we want 5 bedrooms, 2.75 baths, and a laundry room all upstairs. Our architect and us can't figure out a layout that works! We need to remove one room to make it work. Which would you choose? Remove a bedroom, the 3/4 bath, or the laundry room? (We could put the laundry room on the ground floor instead of a walk in pantry)
More details: we are remodeling and adding to a 1800s home on a small lot. We don't have full flexibility due to this. There will only be a half bath on the main floor and no bedrooms. We will have a bedroom and full bath in a new 800sqft basement.

Remove laundry room
Remove 3/4 bath
