British telly’s most iconic homes have graced our television screens over the years. However, if being left at the mercy of the camera operator has ever got you wondering about what’s hanging on that mysterious ‘fourth wall’, you are not alone.

Eager to capture the dynamic family feeling of some of our favourite shows, Quid Corner has created floor plans of Britain most iconic television homes.

1. Only Fools and Horses (The Trotter Family)

2. Peep Show (Mark and Jez’s flat)

3. Father Ted (Home of Father Ted, Father Dougal, and Father Jack)

4. Eastenders (The Carters’ home above the Queen Vic pub)

5. Broadchurch (Alec Hardy’s house)

6. Peaky Blinders (the Shelby Family’s home)

7. Royle Family (Jim and Barbara Royle’s house)

8. Luther (Luther’s flat in season 2)

This project was commissioned by QuickQuid, with the objective of paying homage to some of the UK’s most popular TV shows and inspiring homeowners by introducing them to new ways of thinking about spaces in their own homes.

The research team looked at TV homes that people were not only familiar with but also showed off different layouts and features – from modern apartments to traditional houses, built at different periods over the decades.

Once shortlisted, as many stills as possible from the shows were gathered, and under the guidance of architect Jelena Popovic, clean, top-down floor plans for each home were designed. The top-down layouts were then turned into 3D floor plans with as much detail as possible, including furniture, flooring, accessories, outside views, etc.

I've been writing for design magazines for a few years now and like nothing more than ‘exploring’ other people's homes (with their permission, of course).
