Caring for a LEGO Hospital
As I was building out my city, I decided I needed a state-of-the-art hospital.
I started with a simple design, and I spent too much time designing a morgue. I wanted to have a table that rotated and some freezer storage. It’s probably because my mom’s family has a dark humor about themselves when it comes to death.
I also wanted a helipad.
I designed with some columns, and I was specifically aiming to keep the profile of the building to be small enough to put between two roads. Each road piece has 7 dots on each side, so the width was designed at 12 dots to fit between two road pieces.
Of course, it should have sliding, clear doors because what’s a hospital without sliding doors?
Here is an overall view. There are patient rooms on the top floor, a blood center and nursery on the second from top, then a surgery room, then MRI and morgue. Finally, on the bottom floor, there is an ER.
The building has a nice shape, and it fit my city height requirement as I was aiming for a dense city.
Walk-in clients go to the ER. I was intending to break out the wall on the left side for an elevator, and the left wall has a 4 stud from the edge for an elevator all the way up.
The operating room was a lot fun to make as there are a lot of small details. Of course, there is a sliding door and two wash sinks.
As patients recover, they can look out the window for a nice view.
The hospital was designed along the same lines as a few other buildings I made at the time, and I loved working on the detail to make it so compact.
