Castle Bank
A bank from the 1920's.
About this creation


I wanted to build a bank for an upcoming project and this is what finally emerged. I wanted it to feel like some architect had build this in the 1920's using the elements available from building suppliers of the day. There were lots of manufacturers who made concrete and stone decoration for the building trade in those days.

A shame that I've missed that one ! Very interesting : the overall look is great, and I'm fond of the little garden and of the top of the building too. Lots to love in the details. I love the plants on the backside. Couldn't be a place for Uncle Scrooge however, it's too elegant for him... Great work !

Great work Garth. I really love the front stairs and the little park behind the bank. This is going to look great in your 'upcoming project'. ;-)

Is it, Garth? I must've jumped to conclusions seeing the crown and lion there, with the title "Castle Bank". Good day

Thanks guys for all the nice comments. Chris - I used cheese slopes for the dentils, with headlight bricks turned on their sides with the tops pointing out. The cheese slopes were smaller and I thought looked better. Steef - yep, I need to put up more plants. I will once I get the rest of the build done. Topsy - This is the sort of thing that is found here in the USA, especially in small towns where there might only be a local builder and no architects. They hung onto those 19th century styles for years and years after the turn of the century. see ya garth

Amazing work, Garth. You've added a lot of detail here, and it paid off. Excellent job. -Dylan

Beautiful. For some reason, I like those 'double' windows on the second floor a lot. And those little barred cellar windows, great stuff. I have a feeling the plants on the side could be made to look a bit more 'climbing' though (through connections/overlap). Now, they look a bit randomly pasted on there.

In my opinion, it looks like something from 1800s, but great work! I think the British depiction of 1920s is more... Dirty, greasy and exhausting. After all, they'd been through a world war, and their remaining resources were scare at best. Good day

Now, I'm jealous that my bank isn't a castle. I love the side garden with the ivy covered wall. Great stuff!

Oh my, I just hope its a bank for money, not the kind Phipson makes deposits in. The basement windows are perfect, and I like the "stonework" too. There are a number of buildings with that ornate architecture around here, and I think you've nailed it.

This is really good stuff here Garth! My favorite would be the basement windows. Superb MOC!

Garth, I love the achitecture of this thing! The top edge of the roof with the reverse slopes really caught my attention. And MAN do I love that backside too! (insert your own joke here if you must... YES, you must.) Great work! Remind me to come back and steal some of these ideas later (especially that reverse slope roof... nice) ~ Chris.
