MOC: Venetian Houses

This double modular size model comes with two wonderful meditarranean buildings. Both houses are dedicated to various cultural activities. The set adds a southern flair to every LEGO building collection. As a longtime fan of Venice I could not resist to add a picturesque bridge, a typical water canal and, of course, a gondola. And it could be the first modular set on shelves with direct access to the sea!

Features:

  • fully playable, all parts are accessible with no problems
  • the set can be placed the other way around, with one long canal as result
  • the walls are double-walled constructed
  • the two facades are inspired by genuine houses
  • 17 minifigures
  • 2 x standard modular size
  • ca. 4500 bricks

 

The big House:

Library (first floor):

  • Librarian with reception
  • bookcases, seats and rare documents
  • book corner for children
  • tiltable stairs to the second floor
  • back door to the boat dock

Music School (second floor):

  • big auditorium with a grand piano
  • music teacher and a prima donna
  • a separated music exercise room with two pupils

Back:

  • small boat dock
  • Venetian gondola with a gondolier and passenger

 

The smaller House:

Museum (first floor):

  • small museum with contemporary art
  • beautiful corkscrew stairs

Apartment (second floor):

  • Ilona’s luxurious flat
  • king size bed
  • desk and bookcase

Front:

  • Venetian bridge with tourists
  • canal with water, flowing to both back sides
  • yet another boat dock with Alberto, the fisher
