Modern Family Home . Built for the Brick Architect 2010 Competition, here is my vision of the Minifig scale all-action house. . This is a house built in the modernist style and lived in by an active family. Where are they then ? A-ha! Well, on these warm summer evenings (like the ones we've all forgotten about round about now..) they like to open up the doors and mess around in the garden. Dad stokes the barbeque while Mum enjoys a glass of wine. Their daughter tries to have a swim but her little brother is being annoying.. 'Stop scaring your sister and put that scooter away!' Meanwhile the dog is having a frolic on the lawn. It all looks so peaceful from the front. If you can guess the artistic influence of the front door design without scrolling down, award yourself some points (it's not Piet Mondrian.) This is a family who like their 20th Century art. Dad takes a break in the lounge. On the wall is a print of 'Yellow Red Blue' by Wassily Kandinsky. Stand back and squint a bit. It is. Oh well, please yourselves.. Every house should have a glass staircase.. The rear doors all fold back to reveal the lounge with TV, sofa and a fantastically uncomfortable designer chair. You'll need to be a committed Modernist to sit on that. The lights are from an old 12V train set. A view of the house from above. The design is my own, but anyone who knows their 1930s Modernist architects can spot the influences.. And a view from the rear now that the family have gone back in and closed the doors. That boy still hasn't put his scooter away and they've forgotten the dog! Poor little guy. The fully furnished lower floor, with bookcase, TV, sofa, chair, Dad and boy in the lounge and a kitchen with sink, cupboards, worktop, cooker and fridge. By the table there's a Rothko print. Dead easy to do! The front door design is a simplified version of part of a 1920s film set designed by Robert Mallet-Stevens. But you knew that.. The upper floor, with three bedrooms, office and bathroom. The boy's room is tidy for once.. The roof and upper floor module (with all the lights attached) you can lift out. Notice the shirts hanging in the parents' wardrobe.. finally a use for old 'hands in pockets' Minifig torsos! Some overall views of the house. Apologies for the variable condition of my white bricks. Some of them are 40 years old.. Yes, that is a palm tree.. err.. if you like trees you've come to the wrong guy! Try the creations of Tom Simon or Thoy Bradley for arboreal magnificence. Both of my green pieces are in this picture.. As you were, people! Building this was fun and I hope you like it, especially if you're judging!
