Meridian (South) South Today
I wasn't really sure whether to post this here but I suppose it is probably one of the main presentation features of the TV Show so here it is, my recreation of the Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital Set from the TV Show House MD The Hospital is set into 2 sets - This is the Lobby Set and the Offices, the other being the Patient Rooms, Lab and OR. It is based around the floor plan from this website http://3kelvin.livejournal.com/4369.html.

I started this back in January but abandoned it and have recently got back into House so decided to basically start from scratch. I had to upload it as a zip as it is quite large so you can have a look around.

PPTH Season 4

Renders are to follow I'm just trying to light it at the moment, including a version with furniture. Just wanted to gauge your reaction first.

Anglia (East) Look East
On my first look at this mock I didn't get a chance to look at the SketchUp file, but I've just done so and I'm genuinely impressed. Everything looks to be positioned correctly, and whilst empty, it does look accurate and correct - I also like the TV-like way in which you've recreated the set, with a hallway on the ground floor that actually takes you onto the fourth floor without changing level, and behind one door to the balcony you fight the Emergency bays instead of whatever would be there in reality.

This is good.

Thanks, what I did was as I said based it on 3kelvins floorplan which is basically the layout of the actual stage. I've just updated it for the Season 8 Version and created the second set which has the OR, Pathology Lab, ICU and Patient Rooms on it. This zip file contains both of them. Season 8 Sets

I thought I'd write up a little run down of how the set changed.
SEASON 1
Main Set - Only featured the lobby, clinic and Cuddy's Office and looked very different.
Second Set - Similar to how it stayed for the rest of the seasons but had House's Offices where the ICU was, and had a few changes in the corridors, the MRI was where the Doctor's Lounge became and the OR was simply just another Patient Room in its later location.
SEASON 2
Main Set - Basically the same as the Season 4 version I uploaded but had no Balcony and instead of where the Ivy Hall entrance was, was a window similar to the one in Cuddy's Office that led out onto a Courtyard.
Second Set - Introduced to the corridor arrangement as seen in 3Kelvins Plans and introduced the ICU, Fountain Area and Doctors Lounge also the OR was built.
SEASON 3
Main Set - Pretty much the same as Season 2 but had the balcony introduced.
Second Set - Pretty much the same
SEASON 4
Main Set - As I made it above, includes the new Ivy Hall corridor which supposedly leads to the Lecture Hall in which House carries out his interview. The ER became larger and was used more.
Second Set - Again changes between episodes as the Cherry Wood Walls would change colour depending on the Department e.g. Paediatrics was shades of Purple, Maternity was Yellow and ICU was White.
SEASON 5
Main Set - For the first half of the season was Identical to Season 4 but around 'Last Resort' there was a complete move around of the fourth floor area - Wilsons office moved slightly and got extended by a window, and House outer office got extended by a Window - forcing House's Office to be in line with the corridor to the ER, this was because of the corridor which goes around the Stairwell was introduced. Also saw Cuddy's Office getting redecorated after it was destroyed in 'Last Resort'
Second Set - Again around Last Resort changed so that the Doctor's Lounge was changed as the locker room moved to where the toilet is, and it also became used as a meeting room in some episodes. This was because there were then two Nurses Stations by the lifts. This was also around the time that the OR was retiled in Black rather than bright green. Also the waiting area now became another Patient Room
SEASON 6
Main Set - Saw the end of the House corridor saw get a Benefactors board and the corridor leading to the ER was straitened out and used new windows to cover the ER and Radiology Corridor up.
Second Set - Around this season the PACU was added at the back of the OR.
SEASON 7
Main Set - Saw the room opposite the MRI Suite used as things such as the sleep lab, epilepsy testing suite and Tilt Table Room where as previously it had been mainly the MRI Suite.
Second Set - No major changes but like previously gets altered for the department.
SEASON 8
Main Set - Similar to Season 7 but of course Cuddy's office is now Foreman's and in the Second Episode the Outer Office and House's Office are white and being used by Orthopedics. Also the room opposite the MRI Suite is sometimes used as an Office for example House's Office upon his return. Also the door at the end of the corridor which would otherwise go to Foreman's Courtyard sometimes has a door by it. Also the ER Set now also features an additional corridor to Ambulances.
Second Set - No major changes although all departments are now redressed in White.

Overall there are often small changes between episodes for example the room opposite the MRI Suite and the other Departments on the Second Set are often redressed in different colours but overall follow the same basic plan, also the Clinic gets repainted several times and somewhen around Season 4/5 the White Window gaps at the top of the walls got frosted even more and the ICU, Clinic, Pathology etc. signs got stuck on to the glass rather than the bar under the glass.
