House in "cardak" style
A house inspired by traditional "cardak" houses in croatian regions Turopolje and Posavina, built by my father "Tatasonicni" for Brick Architect contest
About this creation
"Cardak" is traditional village house in croatian regions Turopolje and Posavina, southeast from capital Zagreb.

Here is one example picture, borrowed from site Lekenik.hr :



It is 2-story house, where ground floor can be built from brick masonry or from oak wood, while first floor is always wooden. The main characteristics is open staircase with porch on first floor. Wooden parts are decorated with wooden ornaments.

My son (Rakoua Supersonic) and me have in plan to build more traditional replica of "cardak" with "wooden" appearance, but due to curent limited stock of brown / dark tan bricks I made this study with available, "modern" looking materials.







In these villages, volunteer firefighters often have crucial role in social life of community, engaging all generations and using firehouses as local party halls. Therefore, I have included father and daughter leaving for firemen's meeting.



The grandparents are wearing traditional folk costumes; the wowen cloth used as background for photos has the same style as women's folk dress in our area.



It is also very typical feature to have stork's nest on the roof:

This is fantastic! Love the technique used for making the railings around the deck and stairs. The Stork is also impressive! ~Thoy

I can't believe that such a good stork can be made out of LEGO. Of course, that is only one really nice detail. Good luck in the contest!!!
