Cheesy Goodness

You can’t go past Palixa and the Bricks‘ latest modular building, the Cheese Shop and Bistro, to get your fill of cheesy goodness.  It is a fully furnished, three story (+ roof) modular building featuring a cheese shop, cheese making facility and one bedroom apartment.

I love the interior of this modular building, especially the back counter, the mezzanine level above the shop counter and the furnishings in the apartment.  The lounge chairs are just exquisite!

Under New Management

Palixa and the Bricks’ modified Cafe Corner building has come under new management and they have spared no expense in renovations, not only redoing the facade, but also adding a whole new floor to the hotel.

Budgets were clearly not an issue with this renovation.  Each room has its own ensuite and has been beautifully furnished with bright, modern furnishings.

Even the attic has been converted into an opulent suite.

Modifying the Cafe Corner like this not only looks great, but also allows you to experiment with colour combinations and essentially have one of the originals modular buildings without the expense.  Best of all you don’t need a copy of the original model, as you can download the instructions (BrickSet).

Modular Book Shop

With its bold black and white facade, Palixa and The Bricks’ latest modular creation, Book Shop, is one of those striking modular buildings that immediate captures your attention.  And then you take a look inside and there are even more beautiful details to drool over.

Purple is my favourite colour, so it’s no surprise that the bedroom is my favourite room in this building.  The use of a tub and studio approach to the bathroom is a clever use of the small space. I also love how Palixa has incorporated the storage into the back wall.

Changing Brands

Palixa and the Bricks shows why she is one of my favourite builders with her latest modular building, the Microsoft Store.  She has taken what was already a great building and  made it even better by adding her touch to the facade and the interior.  This has included changing the Apple Store to a Microsoft Store, redoing the facade, replacing the single apartment with two outstanding studio apartments and last, but definitely not least, adding a rooftop bar.

This studio apartment is just brilliant in terms of the layout, colour combination and design.

Medical Trio

With a doctor, dentist and pharmacy, the reconstructed Pharmacy by Palixa and The Bricks has all your medical needs covered.   The thing about this building that caught my eye was the contrasting colours and the clean lines of the facade, especially the seamless arches over the windows and in the roof feature.

There is a cosy little place at the rear of the building for the relaxing and a little garden … herbs for the pharmacist perhaps?

The building is fully furnished and, as you can see from the above image, is quite light and airy.  My favourite floor is the dentist, which has the funkiest carpet!
