Canal Street Houses - Modular Building
Posted 21 February 2012 - 05:59 AM
This is my brothers third completed modular building. They are a pair of houses typical of Amsterdam that line the streets of the canals.
The blue house features an office downstairs with a detailed bathroom and stairs that lead up to the 2nd floor which has a living area and a kitchen with a toaster, food processor and a dishwasher. The third floor has a bedroom and a bathroom with a glass sink, shower stall and towel rack. The brown house has a living area and kitchen on the first level. The second floor has a bedroom and computer desk and the third floor is a drafters office. Instructions available on brickcitydepot.com

Loads of other lovely details inside, too - my favourite is actually the way you've attached the computer screens. I haven't thought of doing it that way - and it would look even more real if you bent the pieces slightly, although I completely understand it if people don't want to break their Lego. Oh, and those tiny bathrooms are also brilliant - good job on making the design so compact. Well done.

I recognize the Dutch style, also due to the fact that i'm Dutch....;)
Very well done!!

This one is so realistic that I cannot look at it without seeing a canal in front...it definitely reminds me my visits in the Netherlands... thanks to details like the little wooden "thing" on top of the buildings used to lift furnitures up to the upper floors..!
Thanks for sharing!

I drew out, and am in the process of, designing (in LDD) a building similar to the dark blue one, but as I'm sure your brother can attest to, there aren't nearly enough peices produced in dark blue! Mabye we should start a petion in the Ambasabor forum for the next modular building set to be produced in dark blue!. Great job with both buildings. I love your interior, especially in the dark blue home. Great copy machine and drafting table!

The design of the houses are quite simple, but there are some nice details here and there which make the whole MOC not as simple than it can be seen at firts and quick time. I like this quind of construction!
The colors work very well together.
I like the fact that the two houses are not in the same wide, that gives a nice realstic feeling.
And it seems that you have put the same worke from outside to inside, with nice furniture and details here too!
They seem to be two very confortable places to live in!
