As I was just perusing the latest issue of Hamptons Cottages & Gardens, I came across an article on Gary Lawrence of Lawrence Architectural Presentations – who is an architectural historian and is known for making house models for architects. If you are building a house and need a 1/8-scale miniature model of your house, or simply just want one for posterity, check out his website and some samples of his work below. Pretty amazing!
Some of his models even feature miniature replicas of the swanky cars and beach rides that tony Hamptonites drive, strategically placed under the carport in front of the mega-mansions with their perfect Gambrel roofs!
While we are on the topic of small-scale house models, take a look at some of these modern dollhouses from Minimii – this one is an exact replica of famed architect Arne Jacobsen’s home and the company offers modern furniture as well! And for more modern “mini” furniture, check out Paris Renfroe for modern minimalist miniatures including tiny Jensen consoles, mini modern coffee-table books, mini platform beds and more. They are a nice change to traditional dollhouses, for those who love modern. Enjoy!
