Sheldon, Leonard and Penny Apartment from TBBT by nikneuk Sheldon, Leonard and Penny Apartment from TBBT by nikneuk
.
This is a house-plan based in the apartments of Sheldon, Leonard and Penny from the TV show "The Big Bang Theory".
It's an original hand drawed plan, in scale, coloured with colour pens and with full details of furniture and complements ...
The design is made according with the "real" apartment respecting the spaces, proportions, furniture and objets presents in the studio set.
Some sets have changed throughout the different seasons and this floorplan is a mixture of various of them.

Very cool! It just feels like an exceptionally oddly shaped building. :)

Politely curious if your rendering has been 'cross-referenced' to the Google Earth satellite image from the wedding episode ?

With this... project I try to draw these imaginary houses as real houses.
But obviusly they are only sets built in soundstages.
The weird shape of the inside (full of angles) doesn't fit with the squared building of that shoot from the satellite.
In fact the fictional address (2311 N Los Robles ave.  Pasadena CA 91104) is also a lie so that shoot was created with a program mixing different pictures,
All the series are full of mistakes like this.
They take a photo of a building to place the scene but almost never matches with the interior.
remeber the outsides from "Friends", "Family Matters" or "frasier".
But I'm not responsible for these errors, I only draw what I see...

..... wait..

Neat! I was building this in Minecraft and had NO idea the walls were angled. It is very hard to do angles in Minecraft, but I am trying.

My mind is twisted... Amazing! I though that Penny's sofa is in-front-of door, not situated at a right angle. But when I think about it... I give up! :D

You are genius!!!

Hello.
.
I'm glad you like my drawings.
About the couch and the rest of furniture and atrezzo elements in Penny's apartment everything appears a littl bit rotated of misplaced to give the sensation of a messy apartment.
In fact almost all the studio sets (also stage sets from theatre) ar trapeziodal, not squared to play with the sense of space.
The couch usually are placed in front of the audience and the entry door is placed at one side.
1.bp.blogspot.com/-wYxn1bjnQiw…
When Penny or other characters are sit in her sofa they are spaking to the audience / in front of the audience.

If the door was in front of the sofa the audience could not see, hidden behind the door...
4.bp.blogspot.com/-yNvm_KAIL7s…
Have you noticed how is Penny rotating her head to see the door ???
Note that the arm of the couch and the wall of the door are parallel, not confronted.
The perspective deceives us, and in TV, more...
If the door was in front of th sofa she would receive her guests directly face to face...
.
Best regards.

in apartment on right side kitchen is so far away from entrance.Its mean than when somebody returning from the market, with arms full of groceries must go as first acros all nice living room and working room.In that walking thay can drop ( fall) some of foodstuffs in living room and make disorder,smear nice big living room.It will be damage.Move kitchen little bit nearly entrance

My house has the kitchen that far away. All you have to do is set down the groceries, and go back and forth. Plus, they already would have walked all the flights of stairs, so they would be holding them steady already.
Setting them down at the door is better than having to sprint across the living room.

I am not the designer of the sets, I only draw what I see...
If you have some kind of complaint about the design of this apartment you can write to the designers of the CBS...
And don't forget one thing: This is not a real house... don't try to apply the logic of an interior designer.
This is not a matter of architecture, it's only scenography.

it said that the flat.All others is very correct.If you drow only what you see there you done it on good technical way as some architect.
 But tell to tham that logic must be everywhere, even in imagination if it is not some abstract way of labor .Even picture of Henry Matisse "Room in red" was seemed confusing on first exhibition.One lady was told to Matisse " mister I think that hand of women on picture is a little longer than it is normal." Matisse told to her "lady , you are in wrong , it is not women -it is picture"

O.K.
I am professional interior designer with 20 years of experience and I know how to create a good and logic distribution...
And seeing these apartments a noticed a lot of mistakes, contradictions, practical errors, etc...
But the rules in real life are not the sames as the rules of a sitcom...
I don't question these designs because I dono't judge them with the logical criteria of interior design...
They fusually fails as interior design but they works perfectly as a backcround to the characters and their stories...

 I respect your professional experience and you must know that I am architect and have experience in interior designer in many private and public object 17 years.Even for illustration for one crime story ( in my deviant folder) I spent time to make seriously flore plan and I understand that you do same.So because I give my comment.
 I am shure that interior was good for camera position. As in life many time investor change some things ( and I dont like that) , so I am shure that stage manager, main cameraman do the same many time the frame of the movie especially if it's a low-budget film, project....You know with how many details in every sequence in interior, exterior, costume......was made Gone with the wind, Troya ( but in one cadre of movie was aeroplan on the sky!!!!!), Titanic.....

The Kitchen in my house is farther from the front door than that.  So is my grandparents.  My Dad's kitchen is about that far from the front door, though his garage does open into his kitchen.  My brothers second apartment had the kitchen that far from the door, as did his fifth.

BOYDEX Featured By Owner Edited Jul 18, 2015
I cant bealive that you wrote to me after so long time about that.
But I will explain it/In past time, the kitchen was ALWAYS in back part of house, apartment....
Reasons:
1.In the past was very different way of cooking and food was different than today. Cooking was slowly and smells will be in all house or apartment if kitchen not far away.
2. Many family had maid and she spent time in kitchen, even her room was near kitchen in the back side of house, apartment...Family was together parents, child in other part of house .
3.BUT every house had economic entrance nearly to the kitchen, to the maid room just for easy comunication-but the MAIN entrance was on front side .
 TODAY
1, It is different way of cooking, food have different smiles, and kitchen must be nearly.Mother ( without maid today) must be nearly the child and because she must cooking kitchen MUST be somewhere where she can take control what child do, and when woomen is in the kitchen she ( even without child) may not feel isolation.
2. And is not comfortable if somebody come tired from office with hands full with foodstuff if thay must wolk half of apartment.And because somewhere still exist economic entrance.
...
....
.....
 On architectural studies we was learning about philosophy of leaving in houses-not only to draw nice interior or exterior or nice furniture or interior or exterior...our designers learning the same.

  It is very offten todat that somebody buy old hose, or vintage apartment, some of tham are remodel for easyer saling.If aparment was big ( or houses) company separate it on smoler apartment and sale it.And BECAUSE becomes a mess WHY is kitchen far away...or bathroom....That mess it is because somebody was separate on unprofessional manner som eold big apartment or hoses....
  And its looking that same happend in your apartment for TV novels...Thay looking as that somebody cut ,separate some old apartment building and make smoler.
  My friendly advice: The movies are for fun and relaxation, even with the action in the film, viewers watch costumes, fashion , interiors too and there can be some mess or some illogicality.All thet together make some movie or TV novel popular. Hollywood did not become glory with improvisation, costume design, set design ...was very serious, even in the earliest time.

  But it is ok if Sheldon,leonard and Penny leaving in  ( in the scenario ) some cheap smole apartments .That apartments give effect for scenario, that thay was made in some building , building nice , luxory and funkcional in the pust, but with separating there are only smoler hacked apartments.
