Hats & Clocks . A modular building featuring two small shops and two apartments my entry for the Eurobricks Modular Madness contest. . One nougat bay, two gables, two shops... (The round window in the bay was inspired by Holger Matthes' ICE train window; cf. last pic here.) (Admittedly, the left side wall doesn't look that nice and clean...) Includes a hatch for roof access (with a simple movable ladder underneath, but that's too hard to photograph properly). Back side is a bit simpler, but still has some architectural details: Hullo, what's going on there? Frankenstein's monster needs a new head!? Clockmaker: A big golden mantelpiece clock thing is visible the redefinition of the word "kitsch"... Let's get inside: ...with all kinds of clocks, and a little repair desk. .. with a look at the back of that golden thing. Ironically, this is the only clock in the entire shop that displays the correct time. ;) The hatter: ...with little not-yet-red-riding-hood entering. I think that there's a law that all hatters in fiction must be mad. Let's get upstairs: Computer guy getting to work in his little home office. Wife's turning on the TV. Making a virtue of the necessity of having to use a 1x4 tile since that's the only existing size in nougat... Third floor: The resident took a glass of wine that's ridiculously overpriced for its quality and taste, about to listen to some music... ...on his ridiculously overpriced audio system. Walk-in closet closeup during build. Group shot: Interested in how the "path of inspiration" led me to the final house? This house right here in my hometown originally gave me the idea of a small gable on a bay with a big, full-width gable behind and the interrupted round shape of the gables. I actually tried this in a facade test build for my upcoming police station, but didn't like it there because it didn't fit in with the others architecture-wise. So I shelved the double-gable idea for later, when the Modular Madness contest came along. I really couldn't use a full-width gable there either for its height, nor use the above house as a model because it requires more upper floors for good proportions than would fit with the official modulars. So I browsed the photos I had taken or copied; this one inspired the nougat color and the predominant grooves on the ground floor, and this one (last on this page) the overall shape. Then I did some sketches: Abd before finally starting to build it in real bricks, I did some tests and construction in LDD:
