The Big Bang Apartment extension is a modification of the official set 21302 and is designed to be compatible with MOC Friends Apartment from the same designer LEGO Artisan. It consists of 1028 pieces, of which 594 are extra parts that need to be collected aside from set 21302.
The layout is not accurate to the TV show. Rather, it's been modified to fit the layout of the MOC Friends Apartment for a seamless incorporation as an intermediate floor between Central Perk and Joey's apartment.
