  1. Thanks Vindicare and jalemac34! Thank you t-brick the windows are something I'm proud of, using those arches was my first objective! Thank you LEGO Train 12 Volts, if I wasn't so obsessive I'd of finished it a month ago! Cheers gabrieleravam! what will be next?? Any suggestions?? Thank you koalayummies! I'm pleased you spotted the techniques I included. With all the SNOT it's a little fragile in places but hopefully the effect is an interesting one!
  2. This is fantastic. The shadows created from the way you've photographed it makes it easier to see and appreciate all the textures. I particularly like the stained glass windows. Well done sir!
  3. Thank you peedeejay, bjorn77 and eurotrash. With all the white I just kept adding colours until I thought it balanced the white out. Glad you like the combo! Cheers AFOLguy1970, I've found it a struggle to find the best place for my gold elements in an architectural sense. Somehow it seemed easier bedding them in among a lot of white! Thanks Kodan! There is more to the interior, especially on the ground floor, the window techniques I was really pleased with but as its all white it didn't show up too well on this pics. I deliberately made the floors 'floating' so light would flow down, but perhaps its more likely the dull day I chose to photograph on wasn't the best. Oh well roll on spring! Thanks carebear, appreciated! Cheers greg! Well I love both Lego and architecture so I'm not sure where I'd prefer to work with her!
  4. Thanks theycallmemrdarko! I wanted to have a low rise railing and just thought the window pieces look cool in a modern setting! Thank you Gongoro73! Cheers Littleworlds. I enjoyed experimenting with a variety of colours on this one! Thanks Man with a hat, it was fun to design a 'modern' interior after I have not made one in quite some time! Thanks LegoSjaak, I wanted to experiment a lot with geometric patterns, quite a bit of influence from middle east, north african and asian buildings on this one! I always knew making something art-deco would appeal to you lightningtiger! Thanks Palixa And The Bricks and kjm161, I had to add more colour to balance out all the white, glad you don't think its too much! Cheers Zork! Due to multiple floors and built horizontally I had to keep the interior simple, I guess it lent itself more to a modern design.
  5. Hello fellow EB members; My latest MOC is called Astrid and Associates Architecture firm. This building is the new head office for the firm as a showcase of the firms abilities! It's taken quite a while to build as I've struggled to find the right direction to take the building. After finding the right proportions to using the large arch pieces surrounding the windows on the ground floor the rest of the building took shape from there. I wanted a good mix of colour and texture, using inspiration from 1920's/1930's buildings with perhaps a touch of middle eastern influence. The interior is modern as I wanted to do something different from one of my many older themed buildings and timelines. Anyway on with the pics, 8 in all; You can also find them here on my flickr page if you prefer and it bigger sizes. https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Comments and questions welcome! Cheers
  6. This is a very cool idea. I like the varying thickness of 'books'. Perhaps the white and light aqua don't stand out so much as the background is also white, It would be interesting to see how it would look against a blue/grey sky background. The interior detailing is very well done!
  7. This looks excellent mate. I really like the effort you have put into the surrounding area. If the minifigs don't want to live there I'll take an apartment!
  8. Impressive scale! I can see it must of took quite a while to build. I especially like the bar and pool areas. Well done!
  9. Very good review, new parts nicely noted and good shots of the interiors. Nice job. As for the set I would perhaps of preferred two stronger sized buildings using the same footprint instead of 3 as it looks a bit cramped for my liking. Still I commend them for interesting part usage and including a fair few new or rarer pieces for a reasonable price (Well at least in the UK). Might the first modular set I buy for parts rather than display. Thanks again Dragonator!
  10. Very nice, I especially like the use of the tooth piece for the lights!
  11. Very nice build! I particularly like the stained glass window and owl's in the arches.
  12. I really like this, don't think I've seen anything like it before. I would also like to see a fourth corner to complete your square of energy. Well done!
  13. Excellent work! With that scale I can see why it took so long, I especially like the interior details and I would be very happy to live in the apartment in this building!
  14. Excellent work. Gotta love that skeleton with the top hat. Well done!
  15. Thank you Slegengr, AnkTales and Graham Gidman! The sideways bricks within the path is not my technique as I've seen similar used by some awesome castle builders but the curving path was something I'd not seen and wanted to give a go. Unfortunately its not quite a curvy as I'd like as all the pressure of the pieces in the paving is 'straightening' out some of the hinges holding all the pieces in. It's always good to try something new I suppose! Cheers Svendp, glad you like it!
