If you’ve ever sat there, watching one of your favorite shows, and thought to yourself that hey, you might just know the layout of that house or that business nearly as well as your own, then you’re going to love these floor plans.
First shared this week by Co.Design, the team at UK-based sales platform Bizdaq were just some of those superfans of iconic television offices and watering holes — and they took it one step further by hiring graphic designer Kim Schneider to create illustrated layouts of some of their favorites.
Imagine walking the halls of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce from Mad Men, heading to the water cooler at the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company from The Office, ordering a pint at Moe’s Tavern from The Simpson’s or Paddy’s Pub from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia — or meeting up with friends for a cuppa (and the latest goss) at The Central Perk.
Tom Jeffries, a spokesperson for Bizdaq, told Co.Design by email that they were inspired to fully flesh out the floor plans of favorite shows to see how all the rooms would fit together in reality — and fill in holes or question marks never fully covered onscreen.
“We wanted to pick businesses that everyone would know and love but that also had a bit of mystery behind them. Moe’s Tavern, for example, had the pandas in the back room, but also the women’s bathroom had been converted into an office, while Paddy’s Pub had some areas that weren’t fully explored in the show. We wanted to see how it would all fit together, and what these businesses we know and love would look like if they were real.”
