I haven’t built anything for the residential district of Micropolis recently, with my last few models being industrial, offices or leisure based. So this block is called High Cross, which accommodates a total of nine large apartment, one on each floor which is set at right angles to the one below.
I love the colour combination of trans light blue with white, and have been using it quite a lot in my recent Micropolis builds. This model was inspired by finding a dozen or so white 3×3 plates in my parts collection, and fiddling about with lots of trans light blue 1×1 bricks to form these stackable squares. This exlusive development is known as Aqua Place and it is situated not far from Micropolis Bay with easy access to all the leisure facilities there.
This neat row of houses is called Arrow Terrace. It sits on the edge of the residential zone of Micropolis. Although each house is built to an identical design, the owners have projected their individual personailities onto the colour of their walls and the designs of their gardens. Each property neatly compliments its neighbours, and over time it has become a very sought-after address to call home.
This is another exclusive residential development, a complex and quirky design from the drawing boards of Hvid Hus Associates. The apartments’ disctinctive shape gives rise to the development’s name – The Pentagons.
One of the things which makes Micropolis such a popular and vibrant little city is the brightly coloured buildings which the planners seem to favour. Polychrome Place is no exception.
When I built my Micropolis block Panntone Square, I had taken inspiration from one I found on Flickr. My other block turned out quite different to that one, but I still liked it shape, I just wasn’t keen on the lime green, tan and dark tan colour scheme of the original. So I decided to build it in lavender, dark blue and dark bluish grey instead. And this is what you see here. I can’t claim any credit for the shape, as I just worked from the photo I had, but I did add my own landscaping around the back which compliments the apartment block. I have called it Lavender Mansions.
