Unfortunately, I wasn’t able in the end to make the journey to Poissy to see this building in the flesh. Actually, I really appreciate that little message as you break the seals and lift the flap. This is the equivalent of ‘playability’ on a regular LEGO set, but you aren’t really going to play with this, are you?

And all the info included insrructions the house is just wonderful. An amazing amount of detail is present, and you can really learn a lot about the house and its architecture.

The instructions themselves are clear and detailed, although some may find the pace a little slow, especially compared to the larger sets like Robie House: How do you rate this set? From instrucyions front, we can see how much the upper floor overhangs the lower, and there’s a delightful symmetry in the colonade of pillars flanking each side: You can see the resemblance to the actual building right away and the use of SNOT to create the curves makes the building look amazing.

At the rear, the instrkctions SNOTty section is, I think, meant to represent a row of windows, but it looks more like an oversized air-conditioning unit.

Steen Sig Andersen doesn’t get a credit on the box, as far as I can see. Still there aren’t nearly so many as on Robie Houseand as you can easily pick this section up, placing them isn’t quite the same chore. Posted September 1, edited. And it will look nice together with all the rest models in the series. Wonderful review, thank you so much.

These things get everywhere. I don’t tend to but these, but I do enjoy reading the reviews as the line is totally different from anything else LEGO tends to release, with often surprising techniques being used.

She has a larger footprint than Fallingwaterwhich holds a similar price point but has more pieces, and Villa Savoye manages if anything to look more imposing. Even lebo the building steps are over, there’s more: Finally, let’s see how Villa Savoye compares to other favourites from the Architecture range:.
