In order to celebrate the 4th season finale of Mad Men (which I think was the best season yet), I came up with a silly idea to create a floor plan for the infamous Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce offices. I did it with an online tool called Floor Planner and it took me quite a while to get all the details right – a lot of fast-forwarding and freeze-framing through episodes, as you can imagine.
The plan, of course, is not perfect. The bottom left part of the offices caused me a lot of trouble, since it gets very little air-time in the series. Therefore I’m still not sure if I got it right (my collegaue assumed they have that extra room for whiskey storage :P). It was said in the series that Cooper doesn’t have his own office, but what about Ken Cosgrove? If you have any ideas let me know. Also, the scales are done by heart and the furniture is limited to what Floor Planner had to offer, so I had to improvise a lot (no typewriters or bourbon bottles :/).
But I hope the fans of this truly brilliant show will enjoy it nevertheless.
Here’s the interactive version.
