Help Lay Out Row of Compartmentalized Rooms?

Good Questions

Q: My wife and I are about to close on our first house, and we are seeking advice on how to lay out a very long, compartmentalized space. The living room, a center room, and a dining room are in a long pathway with small dividing walls in between. We are having trouble deciding whether to remove the walls or keep them. If we do keep them, what should we do with the middle space? Any suggestions?
