New Warwick Square
This is my first attempt at not creating an interior for a building. I think it worked out pretty well.
About this creation


I love the octagonal design that this building has. I used up close to 60 hinges just to get the outside octagon shape, and more to get the windows aligned with the edges.



I was really lucky with these translucent light blue round 2x2s, they were on the wall when I went to the lego store and I picked up a tub full of them. They work well as crystal columns and I like them better then the round bley 2x2s.



A great shot of one of the plants out in the front.



This skylight was a huge pain to put on the roof and the snoting and took about two hours and 14 brackets but in the end I was able to put it on and merge it with the rest of the roof.



One more shot of that amazing facade.



This is probably my favorite shot of all of them. It shows the accented stairs and if you look hard you can catch a glimpse of the flower gardens inside the building, unfortunately you can't see the inside because it's next to impossible to get a shot where you can actually make out the objects on the inside. There's four flower gardens with four flowers each and two different levels. The flooring is hardwood tile and the gardens are encased in tan plates and brown tiles.

The whole thing took three trips to the lego store, 6 large tubs and 2 small tubs from the PAB wall. There's over 1150 windows and 750 dark tan 2x2 tiles. I had to put the black columns inside tucked into the corners for support unfortunately but they don't take away from the overall look.

Finally I was smart and instead of using hundreds of black bricks inside the building to hide whatever bricks I used for support and opened the inside up a bit. It makes it look a lot bigger and more like a real building instead of a fake bricked closed up facade. Even though it has no interior, I still really love how the building looks.

Quoting gijs jonkheer hey, I really like this building. but if you're a tfoL how is it possible to have so many brick. I'm a tfoL, but I don't have many bricks at all.
I live on the opposite side of a lego store and I get a reasonable sum of money.

Quoting Iceman . Very nice! Now build a full scale real life one so I can jump off the stairs on my bike. :>
Alright, can I have a couple hundred thousand for the pieces?

Quoting stefan erismann Great build. I think with minifigs the whole thing would look better, but it is still impressive.
I do agree that it would look better with figures but the scale is that of the lego games figures and I don't have many of them.
