This latest creation by Andrew Tate brings some 1920s style to a staple modular of any LEGO city. Standing at four stories tall and topped with a clock tower, Andrew’s Art Deco bank has both the perfect color scheme and expertly designed architectural details. The light bluish gray concrete facade flaunts a variety of textures and geometric patterns, ranging from your standard 1×2 grille and log bricks to 1×1 pyramids and angled tiles. The use of SNOT with tiles achieves a sturdy look fit for a bank, while techniques like the slightly offset dark green cheese slope detailing and gold accents around the windows break that monotony.
From this street-level view, we can see a generous use of jumper plates for creating both the recessed doorways and added decoration on the facade. I’m loving the use of brown on the ground floor as well, as I imagine it gives a warm and inviting feeling walking past.
On the inside, we are greeted with some fine checkered carpeting and possibly the classiest row of bank tellers I’ve ever seen in minifig-scale. The glass dividers are made with window panes and overhead is a small frieze of tan 1×2 door rail plates. The elevator on the left looks perfect with the green 1×1 quarter tile signaling up. And not to mention, the sand green is key in creating a luxurious feel all around.
