Moc: Coffee Shop (Amsterdam style)
Posted 11 September 2011 - 05:20 PM
So, guys, this is my first LDD MOC (and my first serious MOC over all) so have some patience ;)
I've wanted to make my own modular building for some time now, but my budget doesn't allow for any big purchases. I've had no regards at all to what pieces are available in wich colors since I've no thoughts of buying and building it. Except from this, I've tried my best and would love for some comments!
So, should we have a look?
This is the outside. As you can see the building consists of three floors and a balcony.
Here's a better view of the balcony from the outside. The roof is made by glass panels, to allow as much light as possible for...
...this! A greenhouse inside that allows for a multitude of plants to grow and flourish.
Here you see the interior on the first floor. Two booths and a ladder to the top floor (barely visible here). The balcony is supposed to be a bit of a "mingling area", so there are three tables for standing and a couple of sunchairs.
The ground floor is double in size, of course. Here's the bar with a shelf on top and two seats.
Another view of the ground floor shows tho booths with sofas and a big plant.
This last picture shows the counter with three extra seats and the stairs to the first floor.

In any case, the leaf out the front looks like a different kind of leaf ?
LDD On 'comicon' !

And the leaf is a hilarious touch. Something tells me that Lego won't be picking up your idea and put this particular kind of coffee shop in production in the near future :D

I'm thinking of following the advice from the swedish forum and changing the glass ceiling to this piece:
Then the roof and the front would look a bit smoother, I think.
I'm afraid a lot of these parts might not exist in the colors I've used, so bricking it might be a bigger issue than it seems. And also, as I mentioned, that would be totally out of my budget... :(

As for the roof, I ended up changing it to this:

I like the great colors that you have chosen!
The transparent roof is a nice touch!
