Since decades, quantum computing has received tremendous attention among the researchers due to its dominance over classical computing. But simultaneously it has faced some design challenges and implementation constraints in this long run. One such constraint to build quantum circuits is to satisfy the so-called Nearest Neighbor (NN) property in the implemented circuits. Using SWAP gates, this constraint can be satisfied. But this leads to another design issue, namely how to determine such NN designs with a minimum use of SWAP gates. In way to further explore this area, in this work, we propose a heuristic approach for efficient NN complaint representation of quantum circuits in 2D space. The developed technique is segmented in three stages ? qubit selection, qubit placement and SWAP gate insertion. The stated approach has been tested over a wide spectrum of benchmarks and reductions in cost parameters are observed. Improvement of more than 17%, 3% over 2D designs and 35%, 22% over 1D designs on SWAP count and quantum cost can be reported, respectively.
