'People, houses, streets, animals, flowers-everything in Holland
looks as if it were washed and ironed each night in order to glisten
immaculately and newly starched the next morning.'-Felix Marti
Ibanez. But this immaculately glistening beauty can also be seen not in
Holland. For example, this Dutch embassy, built in the style of the late
1800's, has it's own beauty, a full interior and quite a lot of
decorations. This is just my second MOC, so please comment and rate!
About this creation
At the front of the embassy you can clearly see the architectural style of the late 1800's. The building has glass doors, through which tou can clearly see the interior of the first floor. The decorations of the roof are also typical for that period of history, I tried to make them as real as possible.
While building, I even thought that the back is more beautiful than the front, but the end-result is what I wanted: The front is better. But the back has it's own advantages:it's greener and has a small balcony. The decorations at the back are a bit different but the back is also nice to look at.
The first floor. The first floor of the building has a special floor. I saw this idea on MOCpages, and wanted to try something like that as well, so I did this. In real it is difficult to make, but in LDD it is even more difficult. There are also really beautiful stairs leading to the first floor.
There is also a reception at the first floor.
The second floor has a conference area and stairs of the same style leading to the third floor.
The other side of the conference area. As you can see, there is a portret of Michiel de Ruyter on the wall.
The second floor also features a balcony with curtains.
The third floor is office area. It has some office tables (remember:end 1800's!), space for keeping all the documents.
The other side of the office area features a beautiful stair decoration.
The back side of the third floor features 3 small windows, which hopefully give enough light for the ones that work in the office.
The decorations of the roof at the front side of the building. By the way take a look how simple I decorated the windows at the second floor.
Wow Sasha, great work! It really well made and the explaination is very clear and helpful. I wish that was my home, SERIOUSLY! You should become an architect! Make more of these models, could you make one for me? Gud luck!! :D
