I totally agree about the width of hallways, stairways, and paths, etc. Wider travel spaces also make for much better accessibility of wheelchairs, strollers, wagons full of groceries and or suitcases. The Great room space in our common house is used for meetings, parties, coffee house type snack and chat and laptop use, table games, sometimes music performances and of course our common meals. It can be a place to escape to if you are having a restless night and don't want to wake others in your home, a place to watch movies together, lots of uses. I'd say ours is pretty well utilised. The patio type space just outside the Commonhouse greatroom is also often used as a gathering space, we have an outdoor table and chairs there and folks will often bring their coffee, tea, lunch or snack there to eat in the sun and that can grow into a spontaneous informal potluck type party and often does, especially when the weather is nice.
