Contemporary House
A contemporary architecture house, the kind of place I'd like to own to spend my week-ends...
About this creation
I wanted to experiment with different things:
- The clapboard walls I tested earlier,
- A detailed exterior and interior,
- The use of various textures in the stone wall and terrace,
- A new tiling technique (new for me!)
- Lighting.
I think we don't see much modern houses on Lego, and I also wanted to include passive house elements such as the green roof, a thick wall to the north and east to ensure thermal insulation, wood heating, etc.
This house has been shown at the exhibition "100% Lego" in Nancy on November 9/10.

In the "architecture" spirit, here are the facades:

West:


South:


East:


North:


And the roof plan:


Some views of the exterior:










Some views with the lights on:








You can take the floors apart, but you need to disconnect the wires:


The first room is the living room. It is accessed from the terrace and is splitted in two by a few steps:


The lower part features a couch, a coffee table, a plant and a lamp:


The higher part features a fireplace, wood supply (under the staircase), bookshelves and a stereo. It is connected to the kitchen and toilets:






A small bar separates the kitchen fromp the living room:


The kitchen, with fridge/congelator, cupboards, sink, cooker, dishwasher and a small table.




Toilets in the back...




The staircase leads to a small corridor, with another bookshelf in the stone wall. On the left, the bedroom:


A large bed with two nightstands and lamps...


...shelves and a closet. Closed...


...open!


The upper terrace, lights on:


The bathroom, probably my favourite room:


Towel dryer/heater:


Everything you need...


Ready for a marathon bath!






The house wouldn't be whole without a Lego room! It is small but has everything you need: music, camera, classic space box for inspiration...


...computer to clean the pictures and surf on Mocpages and of course... Lego containers!


That's it, hope you enjoyed!

PS:Thanks to Samuel from LegoLorraine for lending me a bag of tan tiles! I seriously underestimated my stash!...

Why did I miss this excellent house? Here is so much to see, I do not really know where to start. The ground floor is absolutely great, and the fireplace and all the little details. It is what comes with it, for me a perfect furnished house. There's really nothing I even miss the bed is lovingly built. Absolutely perfect Tom.

I decided to delete the page in double, so here are the comments. It didn't feel right to erase them too... Thanks again! // Karol J - March 24, 2014: Impressive build! Very modern and detailed house. Amazing work! // Ben King - March 23, 2014: Modern style houses look very cool in Lego, and you used a lot of great techniques in here. Not to mention it is so awesome that you included an interior as well as a great exterior. I always am dissapointed when buildings look great on the outside but have no interior, but you didn't disappoint! Also, the lighting makes it seem very realistic. // Cheryl P March 23, 2014: I commented on another one that looks just like this one. I'm glad you commented about the lack of contemporary builds. I'll let you in on a little secret. House builds do not get enough respect. I hope your creation will change a few minds. // Tim S March 23, 2014: Absolutely beautiful - inside and out! // Casey Heron March 23, 2014: Excellent job! The details of this house are amazing. I particularly like the addition of grout for the floor tiles! // Ranger Brady March 23, 2014: Beautiful. // Lego Obsessionist March 23, 2014: Wow. Beautiful modern build, love each and every detail. // A M March 23, 2014: Absolutely beautiful, inside and out!

Quoting David Roberts I agree: a beautiful build, both inside and out. I like the random north and east walls. They must have been built with quite some care and a good eye for keeping the balance of colour and texture. The exterior shots of the house with its lights on look great.
Thanks David, that wall needed extra care indeed!

Wow this is an absolutely beautiful house with loads of great details! I love how much time you spent for designing every room, the furniture and all the nice other stuff inside. Especially the floor technique in the living room and the slide door is absolute fantastic! Love it.

Quoting Nick Barrett The structure seems light, yet is rooted to the earth by that stone corner; a beautiful composition. And THAT floor!! Lovely work :-)

Quoting Cheryl P I love the cubist design of this house. The stone work on the opposite side is stunning. The interior is extremely well done. My favorite part was the little stereo turn table. Excellent use of the lever as a stylus.
Actually I stole the turntable technique to the "Haunted House" set, but it's so perfect... Thanks!
