[MOC] Cobalt House

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

another house of mine - with two facades since it's visible from both sides, front to a street and back an inside corner at a square.

Why "cobalt"? Listing all the contents - accessories store, occult bookstore, clinic (and apartment) - would have been a bit too long, so I played around with the initials A, OB, C, and the dark blue color fits the title, too.

Ground floor on the back contains C. Burke Jr's Occult Books and Artefacts - very narrow, so shown here without walls:

Featuring bookshelves and people from 76060 Sanctum Sanctorum - and a lot of other stuff.

Accessories store is basically Friends set 41344:

And the strange clinic is Hoth's Medical Chamber 75203:

The family is shocked because of these visitors that nobody expects...

I mean, who would really expect some kind of Spanish Praetorian Inquisition?

Here it is shown in context in my city layout:

Great build, I dare say 'as usual'? :classic:

Two different but equally nice facades - the 'back' one is my favorite though. Daring use of [whatever] azure (or is it turquoise? It's kinda hard to tell), but it works for me.
Nice details both inside & out - I always like how you are able to come up with new stories to tie parts from official sets one wouldn't necessarily connect with City into your buildings.

 

On a sidenote: I'm spying an Assembly Square mod on some of the flickr pics - did you ever share that?

Thanks! It's some azure, yes.

That Assembly Square mod was an early idea but it's not final, I want to change some stuff - add a passage to the back, make it taller to match the LEGO store, and some other adjustments.

I like how you build those blue rectangle line on the outside wall. You have a excellent building skill :)

Looks great! My favourite is also the back - the medium azure really pops.

I was having a pretty blah Monday until I opened Eurobricks and saw that you had shared a new build 😊 Fantastic & inspirational build as always.  I love how much detail you’ve packed into even the smallest spaces!

Also, medium azure is a color that I can never find a good use for but it looks great here used as an accent color.

Great work again. That rear façade inside corner is fantastic, Nice detailing and colour choice. I think that is the best bit.

Nobody expects the Spanish Praetorian Inquisition!

Nicely done! I like the idea to use the medical chamber in a city context. That gives it a nice scifi-twist. The exterior is very well done too - and since I haven't seen pictures of your city before, you get some extra applause for that. Excellent ideas there. Probably too many to point out! :classic:

Another top notch work! :wub:

I love the main wall (is it made with a large use of dark blue plates 1x2?)

The back wall is nice too ... it looks sleek and neat but the building technique is really complex! :thumbup:

Yes, thanks to a Pick-a-Brick wall. :)

The two in the middle are connected by this: image.png.64a65c3284a5b22087c392447945f0db.pngThe two on the sides are just snotted to the side walls.

Nicely done. Another interesting and unique build by you.

I do prefer the azure building also, but also because of the shaping. The color pops, which works in this context, but I like the architecture of the building also.

I didn't notice the 1x2 plates until it was pointed out. That is clever and really stands out as a different texture to a building. Otherwise a dark blue wall might look boring, but it works here.

I will say, you and another person I saw on flickr those many moons ago were the people who inspired me to build Modular style buildings. I need to post more of mine on here. My main computer is a kindle tablet, so I can't do much with it. I need a PC/Mac or something to really get things posted. Either way, they aren't as happening as your builds, that's for sure.

I like the way you added that extension to right side Assembly Square and extended AS' top white facade over it.
