Lemon Tree Condos is a block of luxury apartments in the residential area of Micropolis, with just two spacious units per floor.
The curious shape of this Micropolis block was inspired by finding three of the trans light blue curved windscreens in my parts drawers, which eventually became the balconies on the top floor. I decided a triangular shaped inner, thanks to finding another nexogon, with curvy edges would be quite ineteresting. I struggled for some time to come up with a suitable name for this one, but eventually settled on Trekantet Hus – which is Danish for Triangular House.
A few weeks ago the New Elementary website ran one of their occasional articles about Old LEGO elements – this time it was the Electric, Train Light Prism 1 x 3 (Design ID 4171). The author, description below. http://www.newelementary.com/2020/02/4171-train-light-prism-1×3.html, and I was very inspired to try something myself.
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.
Having used quite a few of the 1×1 quarter round coral pieces on Totem Tower, I still had plenty left for this model, along with the larger 4×4 macaroni tiles which I got from recent trips to Pick A Brick walls.
This next residential block is called Acer Place, named after the beautiful trees which adorn each corner of the module. The tan and trans light blue colour sceme is really striking, and each exclusive apartment occupies its own floor with an extra penthouse addition on top.
