Avenue Saint-Jacques

snaillad, and his wonderfull lego skill, can make things like this:

Avenue Saint-Jacques

This building is very detailed. The 12 minifigs of the moc makes it being alive. My favourite part of this Lego Moc is the underground station. Amazing, simply amazing.

Info about the moc by the author:

“Here is my Paris corner scene ‘Avenue Saint-Jacques’. It is based on the Haussmann style which is found in most of central Paris. It’s taken me nearly 2 months to complete after various orders coming through.

The building is on six floors not the usual 7 to be found with most buildings as I ran out of bricks 🙂

I chose not to do a diagonal corner (Found with most buildings) as I could not make a smooth wall that I was happy with. I also decided not to make a stacked modular building as I have done in the past to allow better access to the interior details and also its difficult to mix the ‘cladded’ vertical effect with stacking without unsightly gaps. The building is hinged at the side to allow access to the interior. This was the most challenging aspect of the build.
At street level there is a cafe and shop selling ladieswear. On the pavement there is a ‘Art Noveau’ metro station. The next floor up houses an office and dental surgery. The 4 floors above contain apartments, some with bathrooms and kitchens. A central stairwell gives access to the rooms (The floors vary in height which so some staircases vary slightly)

There are 22 rooms in all so plenty of pictures.”
