It’s always a beautiful day on the Boulevard des Lumières, an extremely impressive first time LEGO build by LepraLegoMocs. The builder was influenced by the Haussmann style of architecture which can be see in many parts of Paris and exemplifies what many of us think of as the “Parisian Style”. The angled corners of the building creates an elegant feeling and make for a beautiful roof shape featuring dormer windows. I really love the window treatments which are simple but very effective with repetition. The use of white and brown on the lower floor creates a nice contrast and keeps the whole building from being one big expanse of tan. The addition of the rounded poster display on the corner really adds to the Parisian flavor of the entire piece.
As if the outside wasn’t impressive enough, the whole building spits open at the back …
To reveal a highly detailed interior complete with a whopping 26 rooms including a book store/cafe, photo studio, art studio, living areas and much, much more!
Now THAT is impressive! How do I nominate this thing for IDEAS? And how much would something like this cost at retail, like a thousand bucks?!
18535 pieces would probably cost at least $1000 but may be closer to $1500. I presume the question about nomination for IDEAS was rhetorical. I do agree with you — it’s very nicely done.
