The 5th wall is the ceiling

Ever wondered what it'd be like to work at Dunder Mifflin, Pearson Hardman or the Department of Parks and Recreation of the city of Pawnee?

A few months back, our love for Sunday afternoons spent binge-watching led us to start a side project that we are proud to share with you today. As a team, we decided to use our 3D skills to recreate some of our favorite TV show work spaces, down to a lot of little details that will not go unnoticed by hardcore fans. After marathon-viewing these shows for weeks and more than 200 hours of work, here are the results...

Apparently no one on TV has to shit.

There are bathrooms in the floor plans for the Dunder Mifflin office and the house from Silicon Valley.

The Parks and Rec office is pretty small, and it would be typical for that office to share a common bathroom with other departments on the same floor.

It's not shown in the floor plan, but bathrooms are shown in various scenes on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

I can't speak to the rest.

Don Draper has totally thrown up in the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce office men's room. Peggy was totally there!.

The IT Crowd Office feels far too clean.

They left out the Sterling-Cooper art department. And there's no way the hallways were that spacious.

There have also been bathroom scenes in Suits. Apparently this is only one floor, as I don't see the area for the associates or the file and photocopy rooms or the IT office.

What? No Cheers bar? No M*A*S*H unit? No WKRP radio studios or WJM Newsroom?

Also MTM related; not only did The Dick Van Dyke Show have Rob & Laura in separate beds, for the episode in which Laura got her toe stuck in the bathtub faucet, the bathroom had no toilet (unless it was against "the 4th wall" next to the studio audience).

These are neat but I want to move around in them, or at least spin them around and stuff while my browser thrashes all of the cores on my expensive laptop and it becomes too hot to touch.

I was looking for the Internet in the IT crowd scene, and couldn't find it ... seems like that would be the ideal easter egg.

I went straight in to try and find Richmond hiding from Jen in the corner of the kitchen roof....no luck

So just to be super-clear in case I'm stupid: these are flat images, right? I can't go dig out my Gear VR and see the offices in 3D like I'm standing in them?

There's a board game that features the floor plan ... not sure if you can go upstairs to the seafood restaurant.

Geckwoistmeinauto: "Don Draper has totally thrown up in the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce office men's room. Peggy was totally there!."

And they totally didn't say totally in that time period.
