Modular Botanical Garden with Sakura Tree, free instructions

Recommended Posts

The Botanical garden has an indoor Sakura Tree, a fountain, numerous plants and a flower shop and coffee corner. It is a modular, the roof with ventilators can be removed. The statue on the front is Persophone, goddess of the springtime, flowers and vegetation. Also goddess of the underworld, (wife of Hades) but that's less relevant in this context :). She holds a sistrum (musical instrument).

Love the entire look and feel of this. For a botanical garden, the design embraces functionality. At the same time it looks like it would stand out in anyone's setup.

What font is the sign made from? It looks really cool and I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a copy of it.

@Bludchylde Thanks! Overal I tried to design in the direction of Art Nouveau/Jugendstil so also with the font.
The Font is called ParisMetro and should be available for free when you Google for it.
The name is not by accident ParisMetro, the font resembles the sign of a famous Art Nouveau metro entrance in Paris, Port Dauphine:

I really love the shaping! It's bold and unique, especially when paired with those big transparent panels. I really like the colors and the details too.

The upper section does look a bit like a bus/train in one of the images. :laugh: (I think it's great)

Currently my free building instruction of the Botanical Garden is being sold on eBay so don't buy it as it is free on Rebrickable (see 1st topic):
https://www.ebay.com/itm/233456452324

You can help please by reporting the item to eBay:

Somehow for me this page doesn't work, I can't select a category so I would appreciate any help.

That's amazing. I never got around to buying Ship in a Bottle because it was always overpriced to me, but this is exactly what I wanted to do with the window pieces. It's perfect. I never buy a set the first day of release, but I'd buy this right away. It's stunning.
