Here's my latest Moc for Brickington. Like every other Brickington building, it's built on a Market Street Modular base of 16x16. And of course as has become my tradition, I'll introduce it in narrative form. Without further ado...
With the rapid commercial growth following the installation of proper ferry service, Brickington Island has become something of a destination, not only for travelers and vacationers, but also for those seeking an attractive location for special events. Young couples especially are finding that a short ferry ride can connect them and their guests with a beautiful location for their wedding at a price far below that of the more expensive locations in LEGO City.
Thus has arisen the need for a whole host of cottage industries, not the least of which is a florist. Mateo and Kristie Kunjufu have setup their flower shop in the heart of Brickington in a classic restored limestone facade structure where they have built a proper greenhouse on the roof, and living accomadations in the middle floor. The Kunjufu's and their shop have quickly become a fixture of Brickington social life. A Master Botanist, Mateo immigrated to Brickland as a boy some 15 years ago. Native Bricklandian and Brickingtonian Kristie on the other hand is rebuilding her life in Brickington, after leaving the island as a small girl following the demise of her father in what her mother will only refer to as the day of green death.
Here's the front facade.
Here's the left facade. I wanted to make the left facade attractive. Unlike the sides of most buildings, this side will be visible, as it will be located along side a small canal.
Here's the rear of the building, quite plain, but showing a bit more of the greenhouse.
As with several other of my buildings, (Tomaselli's Italian dining, police station, etc) I've created a completely alternate facade for one side of the building. Whether for use on a corner, or simply turning it sideways to create a new building, I like my modules to be as flexible as possible.
Only a third or so of my structures have interiors, but I've been thinking for some time that I should be creating more detailed interiors for all my modules. Consequently, this module has a full interior on all three floors. I'll post each floor's interior and exterior shots in later posts.
