Rietveld Schröder Modular

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I designed this modular as a modern home inspired by the Rietveld Schröder House in Utrecht (so it doesn't want to be a copy). The Rietveld Schröder House was designed by Gerrit Rietveld, known for his Red and Blue chair (also in the house) and was build in 1924!

I tried to keep as many exterior and interior details as possible but fit them in a 32x32 modular (the original house was much bigger). This means the details are there but not necessarily in the original location. It was a challenge to create it in such a way that it can be taken apart as a Modular. The walls with 1x1 plates are inspired by F-Town by Aukbricks.

Very interesting — de Stijl is not to my taste but this is very well executed. The texture provided by the 1x1 plates reminded me a little of the Maison de Verre in Paris. Nice build, and thanks for sharing.

It's a masterpiece. With flexible second floor and everything. Always happy to see important bits of architectural history in brick form, and in bigger scale than usual Architecture sets. The drawing table is nice little detail.

That's really nice! Instantly recognisable and amazing you managed to get a detailed interior in there as well.

No need for all those fancy post-1980 Lego colours! Very nice modular.

Nice! Love the wall built out of the 1x1 plates, it looks so good and I imagine it was hard to build.

I agree ...I like this particular technique! Nice modern final result! :wub:

This is great!

Years back I attended architecture studies at Hogeschool Utrecht, so a visit to the Rietveld Schröder house was almost mandatory, and boy, was I glad I went there! It's a beautiful landmark in architecture, and your rendition is evenly marvelous. And then those details like the chair, the drawing board and that little chain cord on the toilet...:wub_drool: Very nice to see this type of build compared to the more baroque styled modulars that are around plenty.:thumbup: 

I hardly ever build MOCs created by others, and when I do I take them apart rather quick so I can use the pieces to make my own MOCs, but I am seriously tempted to get the pieces for this one and put it on permanent display...

Absolutely brilliant! I’ve studied nearby and drove by this house a lot! 
Great build!
