I'm challenging the designers of Starfleet's next generation of designers at Utopia Planetia & TrekUnited to fix some of the things I've seen or not seen in bridge designs.

If I could design the U.S.S. Aventine's bridge, I'd slightly change the Defiant's bridge plan to add a standing "Tactical" position behind the Captain's Chair with one chair on each side of the Captain's Chair for Mission Specialists (ie: Starfleet / Cardassian Ambassador & X.O.)

I'd add a floorplan that includes:

A unisex bathroom.

A forward-facing Conference Room, located in a compartment in front of the viewscreen, instead of being located off to one side of the Captain & X.O.'s Ready Room(s).
The Conference Room has a corridor that joins to the Ready Room(s), Officers' Head, Workbee/Inspection Pod/Warpsled docking collar, and then finally ends at the bridge itself. I'd reduce the Ready Room(s) to the same size as the one on the NX-Class.

I'd add a Jeffries Tube / sub-deck crawlspace ladder access at the Engineering console.

A medium to large embedded escape shuttlepod that's docked to the saucer section, on Deck One or Deck Two sort-of like a Dorsal Captain's Yacht, that launches from the back of the bridge, limited to thrusters or impulse.

An Armory / Weapons' Locker Compartment.

A "Diplomatic" and/or "Escape" Transporter Pad located right on the bridge, slightly forward and to the right or left of the Helm/Flight-Op's position.

Could anyone draw this for me and would it work?

Ok so I caved and just spent an hour "whipping up something quick." For it being quick, it's no where near done and I kinda took liberties along the way, but what the heck :P

Darkwing, I'd put the Ambassador/XO's chairs right next to the Captain's Chair (like the layout of the Enterprise-D's Captain's Chair & XO & Counselor.) They're WAY too far apart in your drawing. The layout I have in mind is on a bridge the size of the Defiant or the NX-01. Everyone's shoulder to shoulder. It's not going to be an enormous bridge like the Enterprise-E.

I'm under the impression the Aventine is a larger ship though? Though I do agree regardless about the chairs, though my initial reasoning was that if they're guests, they're more out of the way by being on the "wings" of the bridge.

Height: 88 meters[1]
Mass: 3,321,630 metric tons[1]
Specifications
Decks: 23-30[2]
Crew: 745-750

Sovereign
Length: 685.7 meters
Width: 250.6 meters
Height: 88.2 meters
Specifications
Decks: 23, 24, 26, or 29 (See Features Paragragh)

Darkwing: It is, from my impression, too. But, I'd reduce the size of the bridge and keep the rest of the space available for labs, holosuites, diplomats' quarters, crew quarters, sickbay beds, shuttlebay, captain's yacht, etc. Seeing as the Aventine doesn't have a saucer/secondary hull separation & related mechanical requirements, I'd keep everything else just as streamlined.

I'm thinking a middle ground, not as small as a Defiant bridge but not quite as large as a sovereign bridge? I think there would be room to move around without tripping, but streamlined as you said as the ship is quite sleek by design.

This aircraft/car i find in animated series,but i think what on starfleet ship too must will be this craft.
What do you think about my idea: good or bad?
too i want what on starfleet ship will be this craft: submarine for research deep ocean on other planets.
What do you think about my ideas: real that make in this cgi series or don't?More can make new ship as in movie starship troopers or stargate.This only my opinion what i want what will be in next episodes "Red squad".
