I don't want to teach you to suck eggs, but I suggest that you sit on the architects plans for a while and really think about them, maybe even ask the architect to call you to discuss them.
Architects and designers are constantly trying to balance clients ideas / wishes with what we consider to be best design practice. There may be legitimate reasons for your architect to prepare the design in a different manner to what you've envisioned, and it might lead to a better result - but you'll not know unless you discuss the plans with them.
After that, if you're not convinced, tell them to prepare a scheme based on what you've asked for! If they can't or won't, it's time to go elsewhere.
