Floorplan of the apartments of Sheldon, Leonard and Penny from the TV show "TBBT".
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.
If you want to buy an original drawing, especially handmade for you, contact me at email@example.com or visit my ETSY store:
Don't try to find much logic to this....
With this project I try to represent those fictional spaces as real houses, not to draw them as the sets that they really are.
The "reality" is distorted in these sets to favor the recordings, especially in sitcoms that are recorded with the public and therefore must be ... open as if it were a stage set.
The protagonists act as if they were watching a TV but in reality they don't (our minds complet the effect).
A good example is this zenithal image from the "Friends" set that shows the true orientation of the furniture:
Virtually all sets are trapeziodal, wider at the front than at the bottom to give amplitude to the audience and room for camera movements.
When we see the protagonists look straight at the television they don't really do it since they are a little turned towards the public and towards the cameras.
For this reason it is common to receive the comment of "Your plan is wrong because the sofa is right in front of the TV."
forget that... i just never noticed just how unpractical and silly thr positioning of the sofa to the tv really is in the show lol no wonder why sheldon is so specific with his seat.
I wanted to delete that comment but drvianart of course has problems and doesnt allow me anymore
It's off. The sofa (and corridor to the bedrooms) is more towards the right from where they are currently. From the apartment door, you can easily see to the corridor, but in the drawing, it would be awkward.
The front part does not exist so that the audience can attend the theatrical performance that happens on the set/stage.
We know there is a wall in front of the desks and we assume that it is there even if we do not see it. It is a convention.
But sometimes this "fourth wall" has been seen in some shoots and in none of these sequences does a window appear on that wall.
Not on Sheldon's desk, not on Leonard's desk and of course not in the bookstore after TV.
Neither over Sheldon's desk, nor over Leonard's desk and of course not in the bookstore behind the TV.
So that window to which they refer can not be other than that (as in Penny's apartment) is on the wall of the kitchen to the right of the sink.
What's more, in both apartments it looks like an interior window (you can see bricks in the background) in a kind of patio or ventilation shaft.
The bedroom doors NEVER appear one next to the other. They are always at a 90º angle.
(Sometimes it changes the space between both but ALWAYS they are at an angle)
I challenge you to show me a chapter in which they appear in parallel.
In this layout both bedrooms share a piece of wall so it is perfectly viable for Sheldon to touch that part of the wall in his bedroom to communicate with Leonard.
(In those scenes we never see Sheldon, we only hear the sound of his tapping.)
The fact that you have deduced that he does it without moving from his bed doesn't mean that it is that way..
asi es como dices pero en la temporada 3 (capitulo donde entran a robar al departamento) Sheldons esta asustado en su habitación el sale por la ventana y se va por la cornisa al dormitorio de Leonards y en la escena que muestran están casi al lado (seran de 2 a 3 metros) pero viendo el plano que dibujas seria imposible que así estubiesen, te felicito.
En realidad esa escena sólo demuestra que hay una cornisa que recorre el edificio de ventana a ventana.
En ningún momento vemos el recorrido completo (tan sólo a Sheldon saliendo por su ventana y en un cambio de plano entrando por la de Leonard) así que tranquilamente puede haber una cornisa en forma de "L" que sigue el contorno de la fachada.
El hecho de que pienses que la cornisa es recta y que las ventanas están en paralelo es un constructo de tu mente.
If I ever see it, or find out which ep it was, I'll be sure to let you know.
