Jerry's Place is a non-profit, just-for-fun project. This project and website are not affiliated with, and do not represent Castle Rock Entertainment, Columbia Pictures, Columbia TriStar or Sony Pictures Television. I thank the aforementioned parties in advance for understanding this is a fan project, for the fans!

Jerrys Place 2.0 Released!

I'm proud to annouce that JerrysPlaceVR is now available Oculus Rift CV1/DK2 and the HTC Vive. The lighting has also been updated on the DK1 version. While I was hard at work updating the graphics with baked lighting, VRPill of reached out to me through I worked closely with him and Mr. Q. (also of VRChat) to get the lighting perfected, but even more exciting: getting JerrysPlace into VRChat! That means multiplayer support! VRPill also pushed me to get over 200 of the small items "pick-up-able" in VR! This required revisiting every model and providing bottom and backside textures - which where omitted in the orignal due to them being static scenery. JerrysPlaceVR is now more exciting than ever!

You can download the Stand Alone versions to the right, and if you have a Vive you can pick up objects in the apartment. (Not available in Oculus). If you wish to hang-out with others in Jerrys Apartment, you can find the Seinfeld room in, which also includes the ability to watch YouTube clips on the TV and play Jenga with friends!


I've been a fan of Seinfeld for a long time. After purchasing the Oculus rift I started imagining what my first project might be. I decided to pick a project that would gradually introduce me to Unity without being overly complex. I was not new to 3D modeling, however this would be my first project in Unity. I came up with the idea of recreating Jerry's apartment, in it's entirety for virtual reality. Television is virtual reality in some ways. We make believe that Jerry's place is actually a Manhattan studio and Monks Cafe is just down the street. We suspend the reality that his apartment is just a set in Hollywood, with tons of cameras and lighting dangling overhead. I thought it would be a novel virtual reality experience to take a place that only exists in Hollywood magic, and make it for the Oculus Rift as if it were real. Virtual Reality Virtual Reality.


This project was made over the course of one month, by myself. I used Blender exclusively, and all the 3D models were created for this project. I did not download external models or reuse meshes from other projects. (With the exception of SuperMan) As I mentioned earlier, the engine used for this demo is the Unity game engine, which makes developing Virtual Reality compatible software extremely convenient.

I started by scouring the Internet for screen shots of Jerry's apartment but that didn't yield much. Eventually I resorted to screen-capping streaming episodes so I could get detailed images of the various items around the set. I tried to be faithful to the shows original props and it's era, but some things were near impossible to Google. I did a lot of research and tried to find images of the original products used in the show, and modeled around those dimensions, rather than relying solely on blurry screen shots. I found lots of good footage of the bathroom in the episode "The Barber," during the part that Newman enters Jerry's bathroom to find a hair sample. I feel like the main room and the bathroom are very well created, however I could only find one screen shot of Jerry's bedroom, at the end of "The Chicken Roaster." I used a blurry screen grab to texture the painting above his bed, and was able to recreate the bed, sheets and nightstands accurately. Unfortunately, due to the dimensions of the apartment it seems like it would be impossible to actually fit the bedroom the way the show depicts it. It came out cramped, but I'm happy with it.

If I recall correctly, there are about a dozen references to various episodes hidden throughout the apartment, see if you can find them all!

How you can help

Feel free to email me with any feedback, or help or questions!

One of the most important ways you can help is to download and re-host the project! In case my server get's hammered, it would be nice to have volunteer mirrors so when people Google they can find it!

Jerry's Place in action!

Note: the following video is from the first generation, DK1 build of JerrysPlace. The current build has completely overhauled graphics and models!
Thank you Pancho Joshi for your YouTube walkthrough!

Progress Video

I saved many renderings at the end of each work day, and compiled them into this video.

Screen Shots

This demo is best experienced in Virtual Reality, so I only selected four screens. I'll let you discover the details for yourself!

It's on google cardboard now for android.
Ho To GOOGLE PLAYSTORE AND Search FOR jerry'S place. There is a cardboard and a dive version. The dive version works on cardboard too.

Great work, you can google "seinfeld floor plan", go to images and you'll see a couple that great, there's even one with two different layouts for the bedroom.

Did you see that Sony noticed you? Kinda funny. "Is this fan breaking any rules" Pfft. Also, I think this isn't that helpful, but folks in NYC can visit a recreation of the apartment. Maybe someone can get some good video and do some SFM reconstruction? Or at least get good photos of some of the props. Also also, begging again for a cardboard version! Ideally with controller support, but the kinda-std look down to toggle walk would ... Read More

If you realistically model George and Jerry and animate scenes from the show using the original audio, you just might break the Internet. Better yet - if you combined a microphone with the Oculus, you could have it so you could actually play the role of one of the characters. You could enter the scene and read the lines from the script, which would trigger the scene and the other characters would begin interacting with you. Imagine how many classic shows you could insert yourself into and how ... Read More

That is phenomenally brilliant! I came here just hoping he's made it DK2 compatable, but damn, that's a great idea. Share this idea on Reddit or something man.

The idea of delivering lines in a VR environment was a big part of the novel Ready Player One, check it out, I recommend the audiobook version which won many awards, it's also being turned into a movie directed by Steven Spielberg next year.

Its a great work done.
I would like to try with Blender + Unity + DK2. Could you please guide me about integration of Unity App with DK2? and please let me know the challenges you had faced.

This is great! For the cabinets remember that everything in each one is placed in alphabetical order. Hope that little tip helps with the accuracy. WELL DONE!

This looks super sweet! I don't have an Oculus, so I guess I'd be curious if you might be releasing this for Android or iOS? There are a lot of cardboard-esque headsets out there for cheap, and I totally want to show this to folks.

Also, the speedyshare and torrent links for Mac seem to be broken. Filesnack works, though!

so, at what point can we get the TV in this bad boy rigged up to play episodes of seinfeld, so we can sit on Jerry's couch and watch seinfeld?

This demo Really awesome.
I'm a Friends fan. I would love to see a Friends set demo with Central Perk and Monica's and Joe's apartment.

A friends fan??? Mad Friends will never have something like this because nobody who isn't insane could love Friends enough to create it...or live Friends enough to use it if it actually was created.

What use is a refrigerator in Virtual Reality? An apartment in Virtual Reality has to be beautiful and gorgeous ... and not so practical...

For what this is you're getting way too much press. Others have worked much harder on much better Rift experiences.
Not that it's your fault... but know that it depresses other devs :P

I know, right?

It's because I chose an intersection of pop-culture and exciting new technology.

It appeals to two large demographics, instead of just one.

What a dumb thing to say. He created something thats "buzz worthy." You didn't. If someone made a kim kardashian oculus rift game, it would be front page news. If someone made a beautiful amazing recreation of the city of Paris that was the most visually amazing creation ever made for would NOT be front page news. What gets media coverage isn't about quality, it's about the topic. This is an interesting cool story, even if it's not an amazing technical ... Read More

Hey Poncho, what's the deal with dropping the F bomb on your tour? Seinfeld never used expletives, so why should you?

Can we please raise our standards around here?

I actually think they changed the set so the layout was not always the same. There was usually a bike hanging on the wall in the area off the main room- some sort of hall.
6th March 2014 5:01am
Greg Miller says...
It's just the camera angle I rendered at. If you look at screen shot #1 you can see the bike!

Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this but in the actual show Jerry has a wardrobe room inside his bedroom. If you can remember the episode where the virgin chick organised his clothes wardrobe and it was located in his bedroom.

6th March 2014 2:06am
Greg Miller says...
Wow, thank you! It was hard to find footage of his room. He also has different bed covers in that episode. Hmmm... now how can I make it fit? I've got some work to do..

Bellywash says...
It was actually a long, shallow closet with doors that folded open. It was connected to the wall shared with the bathroom. You can see it in the episode titled "The Virgin"

So glad you guys mentioned this, lol. When I couldn't see the bedroom, I immediately wondered "Did he get the wardrobe?" Can't wait for this on the Vive

Nice idea for a VR. Only thing I wish was the computer model was the original classic Mac :)

Oh man this is awesome! I've always wanted to see how his apartment was laid out as the tv cameras always made the angles hard to figure out exactly. This is too awesome, thanks for making it and showing it to us! Any possibility on Kramer's apartment and the hall, or even other sitcom apartments/houses (like Frasier's apartment)? Again... outstanding, this made my day! I really like what you've done! Too awesome! :)

I really want to explore this without a Rift. Is that possible?

You can run the demo without an Oculus, but it will be split screen.

For some reason, it looks better in the oculus than with Unity's default camera. Not sure why, but I wanted to release it Oculus only for a while.
