I’ve never seen an episode, but if my Twitter stream has taught me anything, it’s that many of you will enjoy this floor plan of the Mad Men office by @CerpinTaxt. Accurate?

Where’s Bert Cooper’s office? Maybe that’s what the whiskey storage place is?
Was wondering the same.
Looks great but Bert Cooper must have his own office…do you think they really but him in the whiskey storage?????
And where di all those they laid off work?
Anyone know when Mad Men returns?
Bert Cooper doesn’t have an office; it was kind of mentioned on the side a couple of episodes ago.
Isn’t this mirrored or something? AFAIK, Don Draper’s office is to the left of Peggy’s when facing the doors. Also, I am under the impression that when Don walks from the reception to his office, he has doors on his right hand side. I’d say his office is either lowe left corner or where Roger Sterling’s office is.
But I’m only half way through season 3 so things may have happened since then.
Regarding Cooper’s office, I’m under the impression that it’s on another floor.
Wait for season 4. There’s a big difference.
@Ricco: I think the plan deals with the _new_ office from season 4.
“Whiskey Storage” would have to be Cooper’s office. It’s interesting how only the main characters have offices and there are not enough seats for any of the minor characters to have anywhere to work. They had the layoffs after the loss of the Lucky Strike account. All of those people that were let go, where did they work? Funny.
And where is Ken Cosgrove’s office?
BTW: Hat-tip to Benjamin Thomas (@Ben_Thomas_Ech) for pointing me to this page.
Something was mentioned early in this season that Bert Cooper does not have an office.
If you aren’t current on the show, then this obviously won’t match what is going on with the offices (not to spoil it…but they have new offices).
My guess is that the office stretches to the other side of the elevator bay (the time life building should have central elevators to maximize window space). Over there is probably where they keep all of their accountants, ad buyers, typists, records, etc.
Plano de la oficina de Mad Men
Oh man, this is amazing. I love it, but you left out the column in Pete’s office! I was also under the impression that you could see into reception from outside of Don’s office, but I could be wrong about that.
If I look at the floor plan, it seems quite realistic. However, there’s a lot more people walking around. And for the people who have seen all episodes so far, there’s quite a few people working at the agency.
And indeed, where should Cooper be sitting? I know this is based on the information given through the show. I still kind of wonder.
From episode 9 when Don’s secretary died, Bert Cooper is trying to write the obit; “… and I don’t have an office to ruminate.”
Bert never had an office in the new SCDP
And where is the ‘typing pool’ they so often refer to but we never see?

See what we ate on an average day, for the past several decades.
I wanted to see how daily patterns emerge at the individual level and how a person’s entire day plays out. So I simulated 1,000 of them.
We know when people usually get married. We know who never marries. Finally, it’s time to look at the other side: divorce and remarriage.
The individual data points of life are much less predictable than the average. Here’s a simulation that shows you how much time is left on the clock.
