Modern touch

This gorgeous Modern Residence on an island by Lego_fan is clearly not a modular building, but I wanted to showcase it nevertheless because of the inspirational details.  Or maybe it is that I secretly wished I was living there.


I love the modern glass balustrade on the roof, the angled walls, the topiary bushes and the way that the beach has been done.

Inspiration – Sebastian Zaberca

It’s no secret that Sebastian Zaberca is one of my favourite builders, and the reason why is readily seen in his latest two buildings.  The first – Television Reception – is a take on the modern apartment block with the veritable sea of antennas on the roof, while the second – The Baker’s House – stems from a different era.

The things that caught my eye initially on The Baker’s House were the beautiful cladding and the roof.  But there are so many more exceptional details when you take a closer look, such as the way the chimney has been done, the outhouse and the four poster bed.

One of Sebastian’s first buildings to catch my eye was this modern house.  I love the staircase in this building and the variety of textures in the facade.

From modern to modern and everything in between, Sebastian provides a fountain of inspiration for modular building MOC’ers.  Head over to Flickr to see for yourself.

Blissfully Blinded

Looking at this building probably won’t leave you blinded, but it will likely leave you blown away.  At least that’s how I felt about the blinds that Zaberca (Sebastian) has incorporated into his latest building, the Upscale Condo.  Not only do the blinds make this building really stand out, the way that the blinds on the ground floor have been left half open adds a further level of realism to this building.

I love the muted tones and sleek lines of this building, as well as the simplicity and elegance of the modern landscaping.

The interior is also packed with details, my favourite being the lounge and the use of two different shades of brown tiles to delineate the bedroom space.  I also like how the brick feature wall in the lounge room adds warmth to the other cool tones of the ground floor.
