Question: How would you place a space bar? Or is this completely macro orientated?

Usually one or both of bottom-middle buttons are space. If not you can make a new config manually and flash it to the keyboard. There are also web based tools that can help you create the configs

If I wanted a space bar that was larger than 1u, I would probably choose a 3u (though I'm not sure how easy it would be get such a cap) right in the middle of the bottom row. You would probably want to put a single switch in the middle and leave the two sides unpopulated (not sure if that does anything weird with the circuitry though). Then customize your layout via QMK (either directly via the source code or via one of the various web-based configurators). That said, I've been using a 1u for space for over 6 years now, since getting my first ErgoDox. But that works for me and my hands, and it might not work for you and your hands. Luckily, this keyboard has hot-swap switches and QMK, so you can customize the layout and feel very easily.

I don't know what this PCB's layout is, but the other ones I've seen have several configurations including a split spacebar, 2x2u, and 4u options.

I had a WhiteFox keyboard once with a 2u 'Backspace' key; I programmed one of the switches to "N/A" and it was fine, but a bit stiff when pressing two switches with one finger.

I guess you could buy half weight springs with two switches ?
