If this would be a real build, you'd kill me, if I'd place a ramp there.
Please correct me if I'm wrong but the actual studio sets of the Conference Lounge and the Bridge were not physically connected (but which is something you are doing now).

Couldn't help to dig out this beautiful (uncropped) Enterprise-D widescreen shot from the original "TNG in HD" teaser from 2011.

It appears that at the angle the shot was taken the height difference between the Conference Lounge and the Bridge is visible. Is it really that much or am I missing something?

The Lounge set originally doubled for sickbay in the first two seasons of TNG, you can see the covered up windows which become the alcoves for the medical beds. It was attached to the normal corridor set. When they took the back wall off that and built a new lounge, they still didn't connect them. Instead they both have little snub corridors leading off them.

As for the height difference, don't forget to factor in the higher bridge roof, which accounts for some of that difference.
