Looking through the many submissions to the LEGO Ideas platform, I stubbled upon an idea that really grabbed my fancy, it looked cool and had a very unique take on a modular building. These types of entries are what make me share them, they have to be different, use interesting techniques and generally look awesome!
Today’s feature flips modulars on their head, literally. The Upside-down House: Bookstore By YellowBox777 does just that, taking a great looking building, rotating it 180 degrees and creating a fun & unique idea.
The shape of the upside-down roof resembles an open book, making it a Bookstore. – YellowBox777
At first glance you’ll simply see an upside-down house, but as you look closer you’ll see so much more and realise its actually an open book with a building bursting out of it. As the name suggests, a Bookstore is located inside the building, filled with lovely interiors and of course books.
The book store covers both the ground and first floors, making for some amazing architectural details and flooring, with a small balcony overlooking the ground floor. There is a counter, reading area and more, even stairways leading to each floor.
On the roof you’ll find a Garden, perfect for taking a book onto and reading in a calm environment filled with foliage and plenty of chairs and ledges to sit on.
I particularly like the stairs and hatch access to the roof, usually on official LEGO Modular builds there is a plain, no frills, hatch. There is so much to look at here and in every floor of the building. The outside it jam-packed with awesome looking, although upside-down, architecture.
I won’t go into too much more detail as I would like you to pop over to the official LEGO Ideas page and to see for yourself. This idea is fantastic and one I’d happily purchase if made into a real LEGO set. I’m a sucker for Modular buildings anyway but this one really stands out as it is upside-down.
