  3. Here it is, my newest model, the Woolworth Building. The Woolworth Building is an early American skyscraper located in Manhattan, New York City. Designed by architect Cass Gilbert, it was the tallest building in the world from 1913 to 1930, with a height of 792 feet (241 m). Located in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood, The 60-story structure consists of a 30-story tower situated atop a 30-story base. Its facade is mostly decorated with terracotta (though the lower portions are limestone) and contains thousands of windows. The skyscraper was originally conceived by F. W. Woolworth, the founder of a brand of popular five-and-ten-cent stores, as a headquarters for his company. Woolworth planned the skyscraper jointly with the Irving National Exchange Bank, which also agreed to use the structure as its headquarters. Construction started in 1910, and it was completed two years later. The Woolworth Building underwent several changes throughout its history. The top thirty floors, formerly used as office space, were sold to a developer in 2012 and subsequently converted into residences. The remainder of the building remains in use by office and commercial tenants. This model stands at 63cm tall and contains ~8,500 pieces, built at a 1:400 scale. There is a lot of techniques I had to come up with to be able to get all of the details in the façade and the roof. The details of the Woolworth Building are so intricate that it would be impossible to include everything at this scale but I tried my best to make it work. Overall, I'm really happy with the way it has turned out and I can't wait to get started on my next build....

  12. Hi folks, my new IDEAS submission "Basement & Sewerage" has been approved today - I'm not 100% sure but I think my idea of an underground extension for 32x32 Modulars hasn't been done before. If you like the model, I'd be very happy to get your vote for it. Basement & Sewerage at LEGO IDEAS You can find all the good pictures on the IDEAS site, unfortunately I cannot upload better/more stuff here. Thanks to everyone who supports my submission!

    [MOC/IDEAS] Concession Corner Modular

    Support the project on LEGO Ideas! More Photos on Flickr! The Concession Corner is a high-profile modular building that is perfect for a bustling downtown scene! I made it to be compatible with existing modular buildings. To make the project unique, I decided to make this an end piece inspired by the likes of the Flatiron building. The sidewalk wraps around the entire perimeter, so it can connect both forwards and backwards. I made it on a 32x32 baseplate for the bulk of the set and a 16x32 baseplate for the tall bay window, which wraps around the two sides and gives a great view. This set works well standalone on all sides. It consists of about 2900 pieces and features two tall stories. It features a Fast-Casual restaurant on the first floor, and a loft office space on the second floor. I went through a lot of iterations to pack in building techniques that I'll let you discover. Ground Floor: On the first floor, there is a lot of space outside to pose minifigures. There is a velvet rope line leading into the restaurant, a bus stop with a wrought-iron bench, and two cherry blossom trees on either corner. In the back, there is an entrance to the kitchen and stairs to the second story. When you first enter, you can pick up a menu under a cool burger sign, or pick from the chalkboard above. The employees would be glad to help prepare food at the counter, either to stay or to go. There is substantial dine-in seating, a fountain soda machine, a condiment table, and a handicapped exit. The kitchen has an industrial fridge, a wide grill for searing fresh patties, a sink, and a cutting board. Second Story Once you go up the stairs through the back of the building, you can enter a classy lobby to be greeted by a professional to help you with any studio needs: drafting, interiors, graphics, even contemporary paintings. There's a futon, a runner and two desks, plus a balcony to view the outside. I included six different minifigures representing children, cashiers, managers, patrons, or anything you want them to be. Thank you very much for taking the time to check this out!

    [MOC] Octan Avenue

    Octan Avenue, the newest addition to the modular street! I promised myself I would complete a new modular in less than the year it took to complete my previous: Baseplate Alley, but here we are. Exactly another year since my previous model, here’s my eleventh modular: Octan Avenue (yes, I'm simply using a well-known Lego brand as a street name, despite the building having nothing to do with it!) The design of this modular began in Autumn of 2019. On my way to university, every day I would go past a building in Les Rambles in Barcelona that just seemed quite fitting to turn into a modular. While in no way a stunning piece of architecture, the entrance to the Plaça Reial is orthogonal enough for it not to be a nightmare in Lego bricks but has quite an interesting mix of porticos, asymmetrical façades and clearly marked centrepieces in the corners to the middle street. This building reminded me of another similar building from Palma de Mallorca. Again, mirrored façades with an alley in-between. This one, though, with much more adorned Art Nouveau flair. For my model, I kept aspects of both sources of inspiration plus a bit of my own magic. My building has the alley over on one side, simpler window designs and the running portico (like the building in Barcelona) but much more pronounced tower-like elements protruding with very prominent designs on top (like the building in Palma). Building the tops of the towers was remarkably difficult. Because the yellow building naturally has more presence as it has more volume, I needed a spire that would draw attention and finalise the design effectively but not overshadow the blue building. This is why the tower top in the blue building is wider and a tiny bit taller. Hand on heart, I was stuck doing all kinds of spires for both buildings for a good month and a half until the combination of these two worked well. A simple 360º view: ============ Interiors: My focus is always on exteriors and nailing those. Interiors are always the second half of the job. I like coming up with original quirky shops to fill my modular and in this case, they are: Yellow Building: Model Store This one was quite fun to do. The ground level has models of two airplanes: 10226 Sopwith Camel and the one the kid in 10270 Bookshop is playing with (he had to buy it somewhere didn’t he?) The middle level has a model of the recent 10277 Crocodile Locomotive and of my three first modular: Magic Shop, Italian Villa and The Iron Horse (2016). You can find them on my Flickr, Instagram or their respective EB topics. The top level has five more mini-modulars of mine: Sweets & Co, A Summer in Tuscany (2017); Klee Corner, Disco 2000 Vinyl Store (2018) and Baseplate Alley (2019). Blue Building: Rug Store For the blue building, I needed a shop that housed items on its walls as it barely has any floor space. A rug store is ideal. The ground level houses the staircase to the middle floor and a bunch of boxes and items that are little Easter Eggs to official modular. Both the middle and top floors and full of rugs! My personal favourite is the black and white one on the middle floor. Video of the modules flying around and showcase of the interiors: ============ Like I did with my previous model, you can have a look at the 3D model to explore all the little nooks and crannies: Exterior Interiors ============ Thanks for reading through and hope you enjoy this model!

    Moc Tower on Mandalore

    Hello there! I wanted to show my first real architectural steps in the Star Wars World - I got inspired by the Mega-Project from Solid Brix Studios. I really like the design of Mandalore, it's simple and beautiful and effective. But enough words, see for yourself:

    [MOC] Lion Pub

    Hi everyone I'm new here in the forum and like to share my first MOC which I have been working on over the last 3 months. I build the MOC with BrickLink Studio 2.0 and used the new Eyesight Render for my images. I love the modular building sets from Lego but I missed the detail level on the upper floors. According to this I decide to design and build a more detailed modular building with more minifigures than the regular ones from lego. This building represents a classic British pub with a lot of typical details like a British cab, a London phone box, a classical English pub facade with a lot of flowers and much more. The modular style building with 3 floors and an accessible roof is built on a 32x32 base plate and contains 32 minifigures and approximately 6000 parts. Level 1 - Bar The first floor contains the main bar area of the pub and small full-featured restroom with toilet, urinal and lavatory. Outside there are bar tables and a red phone box. Minifigures Craftsman enjoying his after-work beer Bobby (Police Officer) on patrol Barkeeper and owner of the Lion Pub Regular guest who enjoys his retirement Best friends enjoy their free evening Level 2 – Gambling room The second floor features a gambling room complete with a pool table, poker corner and dart board. There is also a balcony on the back side to the backyard. Minifigures Young couple play a game of pool Office worker playing a game of darts Student can't keep his hands off gambling Housewife practices her passion at the poker table Professional poker player Level 3 – Live Music The third floor features a stage for live music, a small bar and a second full-featured restroom. Minifigures Punk who also loves Rock'n'Roll Aging hippie Piano player Elvis imitator and musician Groupie Barmaid Businessman enjoys a cool pint Champagne connoisseur and music lover Level 4 – Rooftop Party The last level offers space for a roof top party with a sitting corner under the overgrown pergola, bar tables, barbecue and DJ. Minifigures Man enjoying the delicious Hotdogs Barbecue chef Security DJane Female dancer Boyfriend of the female dancer Bestfriends start the evening with prosecco Celebrity couple Cab / Taxi Last but not least, the MOC offers a Classic London Cab heavily influenced by the "TFL Classic London Cab Taxi" from bamsham363 Minifigures Businessman treats himself to a pint Taxi driver Thanks very much for reading and I hope you like my first MOC. There are more pictures on Bricksafe and feel free to support my MOC on Rebrickable and let me know what you think. At the moment I am building my MOC with real Lego bricks. As soon as possible I will post any photos of the real lego building.
  25. I ve being thinking for a while to share with you my Lego Ideas Mocs... and I ve being hesitant. Well I decided to go ahead and do it!!! These is my latest moc and I m planning to upload the others too :) https://ideas.lego.com/content/project/link/3c993b46-9c04-400b-a633-86dd613463cc Based on several Japanese Traditional Watermills, this modular structure works both manually or with added Power Functions. It is made from 2073 Lego bricks, 3 minifigures and PF are also included in the count. When I began my research into Japanese Traditional Architecture I became fascinated with its Watermills... Such simple structures but at the same time so intriguing mechanisms that perform a simple task of grinding! My Working Watermill With Interior & Power Functions consists of the roof, a ground floor and a basement. The big Mill turns either by turning the crank on the rock in the river or by power functions that can be added in the basement. It creates movement in the mechanism found on the ground floor. If PF are not added the basement works as a storage for the seeds that are harvested and awaiting to be grinded. This would make a great set as I feel a working watermill is something missing from Lego sets. Its is very playful and could be easily added in a modular landscape. I m currently in the process of gathering bricks and hopefully before the end of the year I will be able to make it a real-life model! I would like to thank my dear friend @Patgeo for helping me work out and simplify the gears and power function mechanism!!!
