The requirements of taping situation comedies—following characters across a room—mean no/few walls and clear sight lines. These open apartments/living areas are where the popular desire for "open concept" living comes from.
Other examples where effectively inaccessible to the uninitiated.
Frasier and Friends and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air did more to normalize open concept floor plans than any of our favorite modern architects. Your love for clear sight lines—a view from the couch into your kitchen—isn’t driven by some modernist theory or practice or praxis as much as it’s inscribed in the sitcom. Lucy and Desi rather than Ray and Charles. Ellen instead of Eileen Gray. Married with Children after Meis van Der Rohe. Seinfeld not Le Corbusier. Situation comedy. Shows about nothing except relationships and living. Effortlessly quotable, echoed in our everyday, so why not our architecture?
