Seeing Double

It’s always a treat when Barrie Crossan produces one of his Dutch-style modular buildings, so it’s even more of a treat when there’s two!  The Double Dutch includes a 19-stud wide Florist and 13-stud wide Record Shop, each with a two-bedroom apartment on the upper floors.

Both facades are striking, using bold and contrasting colours.  Dark Orange and White is one of my favourite colour combinations for modular buildings.  (Edit: I may need a new monitor – Barrie tells me its actually Reddish Brown!) I would normally have thought to use Light Bluish Grey for the trim on this colour combination, but I like how the Black trim ties the two buildings together.

The interior is fully furnished, with lots of clever ideas. My favourites are the loft bed and the snowboard couch!

Warehouse Conversion

Barrie Crossan demonstrates again why he is one of my favourite modular builders with the Converted Old Amsterdam Warehouse.  The Warehouse features a whopping six floors, housing a cycle repair shop, dressmaker, two one-bedroom apartments and a two-bedroom apartment.  Each one of them fully furnished too!

While the interior is beautifully detailed, my favourite spot in this building is actually the bench in the garden adjoining the building.  A perfect place to chill out with a book I think.

Calling all gym junkies

Barrie Crossan’s City Health Club is an inner city paradise for gym junkies!  The City health Club is beautifully detailed inside and out, and boasts everything a fully equipped gym should have, including a sauna and spa.

The building overall has a striking facade, with a great colour scheme.  However, it is the ground floor that steals the show for me, especially the stonework around the entrances and the wrought iron fencing hiding behind the flowers.

The interior is fully furnished, with treadmills and weights on the gym floor, change rooms and shower facilities, sauna, steam room and spa, just to name a few.  Here’s my favourite room in the City Health Club, the sauna:

Thanks for the inspiration Barrie!
