Hats off to Gabriele

The Hat Store by Gabriele Rava is one of those buildings with loads of street appeal that immediately draws your attention.  It is one of contrasts in terms of colours and details, with the darker, intricate details on the ground floor followed by the lighter middle floor with simpler detailing and then finished off by a bright colour for the top floor which again has more intricate detailing. Despite that (or is it because off that?), it all works really well together to create a striking building.

My favourite details are the windows on the ground floor and the trim at the roof line (the parts with the 1×1 plate with tooth).  The brick-built hats are neat too!

I also love the colours in this building.  While I wouldn’t have thought to put the yellow and dark orange together, it kind of makes sense when you think of it in terms of them being shades of one another, including the dark red in the awnings on the ground floor.

Head over to Flickr or Eurobricks for a closer look!

Thanks for sharing, Gabriele!
