This is a MOC inspired by Hundertwasser Haus in Vienna, a very special building.
I tried to creat it by LEGO since I visited Vienna three years ago.

In this version, it is not the same with origin Hundertwasser Haus. I consider the
concept and feeling are retained. There are Entrance of apartment, Diamond Store,
barber shop, chocolate store, LEGO FAN CLUB in 1F.

Whoa, nice MOC!
I love how you put all those colors in there.  :classic:

EDIT: The brick wall part of the apartment looks really good.  :thumbup:
Where did you get that "Diamonds" sticker? By the way, I like the small details like the barber spiral thingy and those "sticky buns" (or whatever they are). Also, nice use of the LEGO Fan brick!  :classic:

The diamond sticker came with an old Spiderman set, with a ramp and a skateboard thief stealing from the diamond store.

Easy recognizable and a very good rendering of the original.  :sweet:
A fine and indeed colorful work, very well done, I especially like the arrangement of the
different parts of the facade and the good use of Fabuland windows.  :thumbup:
Maybe the roof greening could be a bit more prominent...

Brilliant MOC.  I've never seen the original, but your MOC's whimsy and color is smile inducing.  Kudos also on the use of Fabuland parts.  The roofline seems a bit abrupt, but as it appears that this is a facade, that may be inevitable.  Well done.

This is just great. I love the little barber shop and cafe next door! Nice use of color!

It is a really beautiful building I'd like to have one in my little town :classic:

Hi, the sticker of "diamond" comes from set 4853.

This is absolutely marvellous! I won't go into details explaining what and why I love so much about it, but you've obviously put in a lot of work, so it's only natural that the end result is such a beauty.

Just got one question: have you considered adding even MORE greenery to this MOC, as in the original Hundertwasserhaus? Looking at it on a fine spring morning, I had the feeling that shrubs and trees were coming straight out of those vibrant colours and I really loved that combination of colours + trees.... it was sorta like the Hanging Gardens of Babylon or something. Here's what I'm talking about:
