Product Idea

The Arches

*Based loosely on a previous idea I had for how to soften the end of a row of modular buildings, this is a revised, improved and more sturdy creation.

Have you ever looked at your Modular Street and, if you are unable to position a corner modular at the end of your build, thought about how to hide that ugly blank wall of the last modular?
The Arches is a modular 'end piece' for your street that adds detail to the end of your creation, and a talking point for your mining citizens.
It's modular design allows amazing flexibility for how it can be used in your Modular Street.

Modular design:
  • Storage arch can be placed to the left or right of the kiosks.
  • Pavement modules can be mirrored and reversed to be used on either side.
  • Billboard element can be included, or left off if preferred.
  • Link pins on rear and side, to allow design to be connected either width or lengthways to other modular buildings.
