Villa Tugendhat is famous modernist house designed by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and built between 1928-1930. This architect is famous also for Farnsworth House which was already introduced by Lego in the set 21009.
In its time it was revolutionary building introducing minimalism, concrete structure and large windows to the world of private housing. It had luxury features like air-conditioning. Windows in the main living space are electrically operated and can be lowered to the basement. The whole living space is then opened to the garden. Dividing wall used in the living space is made of brown-gold onyx which is translucent and it is glowing during sunset. Modern mansions which you can see today for example in Los Angeles are without a doubt inspired also by this building. You can see that they are really not that “modern” after all!
This modernist house is now protected by UNESCO and you can visit it in Brno, Czech Republic. It is fully restored to the state in which it was built.
You can read some information about this house from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Villa_Tugendhat
I tried to reproduce as many details as possible in the chosen scale even the slope on which is the house built. I reused the White House print piece because this is also “white house” after all. I used some technics from The White House set but with some interesting changes. You will see!
Instructions are handcrafted in Studio 2.0 with all details and proper views of the build. You should be able to build this architecture model without any issues. Please let me know via private message if something will not be clear. I will try to help you.
Enjoy the build!
