My modular town is still expanding. After buying the Fire Brigade, I decided to make anouther modular MOC. It had to be a corner building, because I don't just want a row of houses, but something like a square or a block of houses. I tried to build it in the style of the 19th century Dutch architect C. H. Peters, who has mainly built a lot of post offices, in a sort of gothic-revival eclectical style. And since my town didn't have a bank building yet, it had to be a bank.

Great stuff man, loving the roof. :sweet:  Though I have to say the bank sign on the side of the building looks a little out of place, like almost to bulky, but maybe its just me.  :laugh:  Anyway, awesome job and keep it up. :thumbup:

Isn't that often the case with signs like this? They are the most ugly parts of many shopping street, and I like to have it that way in my streets too. Some of my other modular buildings also have 'out of place' signs. By the way, the sign can very easily be removed to get a 'clean' look.

This building looks really great as part of your little town! As stated, the roof is really top-notch.

Excellent work 'alois', I really like the teller windows - very clever use of old parts there and that cafe corner feel to the building - keep them comming and Brick On ! :moar:

That is another great building 'alois'. Great use of color and structure.  :thumbup:

The photo of the teller window fooled me. My first thought was of a mirror in the rest rooms.

Wow! I find that Corner MOCs are a lot less common to come by, and this is superb! The colour scheme is spot on  :thumbup:
Too much Lego, so little moneh!
