Friends’ appartment in 3D: Oh my god!
How u doin’? Since the show ended in 2004, everyone has been asking the same question: Is a Friends reunion coming to TV? Our wishes have been granted with the special episode Friends: the Reunion, released in May 2021. After knowing famous Rachel and Monica’s appartment on TV, let’s discover it in 3D with HomeByMe. We are sure you will find some secrets you still don’t know.
While designing this apartment in HomeByMe, we obviously couldn’t stop arguing about the best bits of the show! So we decided to share 3 of our favorites moments! It’s like we never were on a break!
3/ When Monica proposed to Chandler
2/ The one where Joey and Chandler claimed their newly-won apartment
1/ The one with the apartment bet
But obviously, so many other episodes were awesome and have left a mark on a us! Don’t hesitate to share your favorite episodes with us on our Facebook page!
PS: My personal favorite episode: The one where Brad Pitt hates Rachel!
How I Met your mother’s appartment in 3D!
Like many of you, our HomeByMe team was a big fan of HIMYM. We’ve been feeling nostalgic since the show ended in April with the revelation of how Ted met his wife. Since then Ted’s apartment has turned into a desperately empty place. Just look at it :
Don’t you feel sad at looking at that empty room? Personally we do. We wanted this apartment to live again, because that’s where Robin, Ted, Lily, Marshall and Barney met and lived every day for 9 years. Thus, we decided to bring it back to life. It’s a good way to say goodbye to one of the most loved group of friends on TV!
The apartment is currently decorated as it was when Ted, Lily and Marshall lived there, but feel free to redecorate it by copying the project in HomeByMe.
As for us we actually designed Ted’s apartment in 2 simple steps :
1) Download the plan and design the walls and windows
First of all we downloaded Ted’s floorplan designed by artist Inaki Aliste Lizarralde and built the walls following the lines drawn on the plan. That’s something very easy to do. If you want to do it with your own house, just download your floor plan in HomeByMe, then set it properly to the right scale and begin building the walls.
Here is the original 2D plan :
The plan appears in transparency to help you put furniture in the right places :
2) Choose the colors of the walls and place the furniture
We looked at many episodes of HIMYM (honestly this was a very nice task) in order to recreate the atmosphere and the design of the flat. Actually, we realized Ted had always lived in a big mess! Thanks to the very large choice of accessories available in HomeByMe we managed to recreate that mess quite well :).
Here’s a view of the living room with Lily reading on the couch :
Here are the renderings of the main rooms we made :

Do you like it ? We had a lot of fun recreating Ted’s apartment, and we hope you’ll enjoy visiting it directly on our website thanks to the WebGL option. Don’t hesitate to share it with your friends on Facebook , and to follow us on Instagram.
Have fun taking a 3D walk in the flat ! Embody Ted Mosby and become an architect, for the first time! After all, Barney clearly said it : architects are hot.
The Big Bang Theory appartment in 3D!
Bazinga ! Sheldon and Leonard’s apartment is ready! You can now dive into Apartment 4A and visit each corner of Dr. Sheldon Cooper and Dr.Leonard Hofstadter’s universe, the 2 main scientists of the well known American TV show “The Big Bang Theory”, created in 2007.
Their flat is the place where most of their adventures occurs: that’s where they eat Chinese, watch television, play video games, read Comic Books, try new cosplays, and meet with their “nerd” friends Howard and Raj and their pretty neighbor Penny (a waitress who works at the “Cheesecake Factory”).
Our team really enjoyed designing it as we discovered in their apartment a lot of geeky accessories and incredible comic books inspired objects. We couldn’t recreate them all because of their specific shapes but we had a lot of fun trying to be as realistic as possible. We recreated the flat thanks to a 2D floor plan designed by artist Inaki Aliste Lizarralde that we uploaded on HomeByMe.
Here is the original 2D plan :
Take a look to the living-room where you can find the couch and Sheldon’s private spot on the left end of the couch: a particular seat that is his, and no one else is allowed to sit in it. Sheldon’s explanation: “in the winter that seat is close enough to the radiator to remain warm and yet not so close as to cause perspiration. In the summer it’s directly in the path of a cross breeze created by opening windows there and there. It faces the television at an angle that is neither direct, thus discouraging conversation, nor so far wide as to create a parallax distortion. “
Take a look to the different rooms we have made!
The kitchen, open to the living room:
We hope you liked it! The apartment is currently decorated as it was when Leonard and Sheldon lived there in Season 1, but the artwork changes frequently, so feel free to redecorate it by copying the project in HomeByMe.
PS: Great job to Guillemette, our marketing intern, who spent a couple hours designing these amazing apartments!
