Help! I want an entry way from my front door to my living space

4 years ago
The entrance of our new house (we haven’t moved in yet) leads directly into the middle of our living space. It currently has walls but the space is too narrow to put a sofa that faces a tv on the wall. We therefore wanted to knock through the partition walls, remove the box around the door, and expose the staircase to create one big room. How can we create some kind of entry way with this open plan design? I don’t mind doing building work if need be. Just hate the idea of walking straight into the living room :(

Pic 2 is the ‘reception’
Pic 3 is the ‘dining room’
