MOC: Astrid and Associates Architecture firm

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow EB members;

My latest MOC is called Astrid and Associates Architecture firm. This building is the new head office for the firm as a showcase of the firms abilities!

It's taken quite a while to build as I've struggled to find the right direction to take the building. After finding the right proportions to using the large arch pieces surrounding the windows on the ground floor the rest of the building took shape from there. I wanted a good mix of colour and texture, using inspiration from 1920's/1930's buildings with perhaps a touch of middle eastern influence. The interior is modern as I wanted to do something different from one of my many older themed buildings and timelines.

Anyway on with the pics, 8 in all;

This is really fantastic. I'd tell you what parts I like most but I like just about everything you did. The use of windows for railings, just damn, looks awesome.

You Always have such nice buildingtechniques...and magical colors.... The building has a nice 30-ies look.... it matches that old 10184 Lego Town Set very well!! Great work, love it!!

WOW, amazing building! :thumbup:

My favorite is your desing of the interior - simply, clever and straight to the point. Modern desing, like you said.

Thank you for sharing.

Another amazing build. The overall color scheme is beautiful and again you make it look so easy, but yet so impossibly hard. ;-)

I especially like the usage of intertwined cheese slope rows to create a zig-zag-pattern pillar. Great idea!

This design and color scheme is so clean! It is almost hypnotizing to look at.

A very visually appealing structure.  The blue and gold accents work very well on this.  Excellent work!

It's a bit much.

 

 

Haha, just kidding. I like the clean interior aesthetic, seems very fitting for a firm like that. You did a great job carrying through the outside elements into the interior without being repetitive. The atrium works really well, the one slight tweak I would make for future pictures is to have more light coming down from above so it gives a sense of the height and the openness in contrast to the floors that would block the light. The little touches outside are clearly well thought out and I like how shiny the tiles are. Great work!

Thanks theycallmemrdarko! I wanted to have a low rise railing and just thought the window pieces look cool in a modern setting!

Wow. Another beauty!. And what a great interior. Amazing!

Thanks Man with a hat, it was fun to design a 'modern' interior after I have not made one in quite some time!

Thanks LegoSjaak, I wanted to experiment a lot with geometric patterns, quite a bit of influence from middle east, north african and asian buildings on this one!

I love this so much :wub: the colours, the details on the facade, the clean look, the interior, the kiosk ... well done!

Wonderful and subtle use of colours. Lovely.

Thanks Palixa And The Bricks and kjm161, I had to add more colour to balance out all the white, glad you don't think its too much!

Cheers Zork! Due to multiple floors and built horizontally I had to keep the interior simple, I guess it lent itself more to a modern design.

Wow!! A beautiful looking building!! I really like the exterior design and the use of colour you've got going on and the interiors pretty cool too. With skills like that I think you could easily get a job with Astrid!! 

Excellent work!!

Thank you peedeejay, bjorn77 and eurotrash. With all the white I just kept adding colours until I thought it balanced the white out. Glad you like the combo!

Cheers AFOLguy1970, I've found it a struggle to find the best place for my gold elements in an architectural sense. Somehow it seemed easier bedding them in among a lot of white!

Thanks Kodan! There is more to the interior, especially on the ground floor, the window techniques I was really pleased with but as its all white it didn't show up too well on this pics. I deliberately made the floors 'floating' so light would flow down, but perhaps its more likely the dull day I chose to photograph on wasn't the best. Oh well roll on spring! :classic:

Very elegant, clean and unique design. Fantastic use of an abundance of great SNOT techniques. There are great builds everywhere, from the very original exterior to the floor railings, multi-screen computer, the tables and seating and great newsstand, its never ending beauty. Encore!
