So here's my entry for this nice little contest... (finished rather early because I'll finally move into my new apartment in July.) Hope you like it:

Ground floor interior featuring a hatter (mad, of course^^) and a clockmaker:

Second and third floor interior:

Many more photos on flickr, including details of the interiors, a group photo with Fire Brigade and Green Grocer, and the inspiration process for this design. Same on MOCpages.

I used some original Lego stickers from various sets for paintings/photos on the walls, and for the house number. And I hope it's okay for this contest that I used the pin (dark bluish gray bar) that holds together the groups of four track pieces instead of a regular antenna/bar – after all, it's an original Lego part even if Lego wants you to throw it away...

Very nice work here!

I like how it is 3 structures in one, the brown windows in the grey works well (I was going to do that with my own entry! :laugh: ) The interior details are what i've come to expect from you, detailed and well done as always.

Best of luck!

I also like that it feels like three buildings. I do think it would have been cool to make the front of the left side that darker brown.

Wow, that is beautiful! The exterior styling is outstanding, and you've packed an incredible amount of detail into the interior too. Well done!

A great building, inside and out. The exterior is absolutely stunning, with wonderful detailing and some lovely colour choices - even the back of the building is great - and the interior is no less impressive, with great furniture and, my favourite, that clock shop/workshop. I see my own chances of success in this competition trickling slowly down the drain... :)

I can't decide what I like more the interior or exterior, the judges are going to have a tough time in this contest. Well done, Question after the contest will you be making the LDD available that is if you made one?

I knew you would be the one to beat, and thus far I think I'm right. At least you were nice enough to post early to allow everyone else a fighting chance to up their game. :laugh:

As usual I love everything, but putting the staircase in the middle of the building like that is something I've not seen often and is very well done. Once again, blogged on Brick Town Talk!

Wow! That is a creative exterior. I love it. How different angles completely change the shape of the building. That first floor interior is great, I like the entryway and how you have it laid out. You really raised the bar for this contest. The details here are great. The funky little clock. The window designs. All great.

A very good effort on your part and i wish you luck with the contest.

Thanks a lot everyone!

Question after the contest will you be making the LDD available that is if you made one?

All I have in LDD is the facade test (see flickr) which isn't quite final, that's all I can make available...

That's a really nice modular and it fits in perfectly with FB and GG. The colours are great and so is the theme chosen. The facade is full of interestin details. As others have said: 'Hats off to you!' and all the best in the competion.
