This is what happens when you don't have proper art direction, or the art team does not do enough pre-production work on location layout designs. The studio(s) and artists handling the backgrounds for each scene will then just draw whatever works for their allocated sequence, without having good reference to make something consistent.
 
There is almost no way that these three screens represent the same location in any sort of reality. I can only conclude that the art director did not bother to do any work whatsoever on this location, and this is the unfortunate result. Nothing matches up in the screens at all. Especially if you follow the tile lines on the floor to create a layout.

Bjergsen is the greatest midlane in the world
Besides all the other issues, it looks the toilet is situated perpendicular to the stall door(?), which is not usually the case in the public restrooms I've visited. Especially considering the arrangement of the stalls.
It's forward facing, the shot over the side is peering into the next stall. I hate to just spam bathroom pictures but here's another shot inside the stall. The head at the bottom of the screen is supposed to be a person standing in the stall with the main character.
 
The most disconcerting thing about that image is still the table. What is a table like that supposed to be used for?
Poker chips I guess.

That picture gets worse every time I see it. The best part is how every element in the image works together to highlight the awful digital compositing. Putting digital objects in front of characters just accentuates how much they don't belong. The reflection on the ground drawing your attention to the fact that the characters have no shadows and appear to be floating somewhere in front of the background. It's the image that keeps on giving.

Sweden!

I saw many outward opening doors in Sweden. And afaik old doors were also outwards doors.
Dang contrarian Swedes.

Wait, did the toilet MOVE in this screen? Why isn't it against the wall?! The rabbit hole! >_<

What the crap. In the previous shot the toilet was clearly flush with the back wall, and now it's moved about a foot forward.
 
Wow, that bathroom must be part of some shifting dimension or something. You've got a complete mish-mash of rooms that simply can't fit together.

Also, those are the most uncomfortable looking toilet stalls ever. I would not want to go into that bathroom.

But that means the stall has its own back wall distinct from the wall of the restroom itself - why did they not just build it into the wall like any normal restroom? I don't understand!

Forget Nyarkogmasdf; this is the true cosmic horror of the season.
