The Royal Naval College is a World Heritage site and the architectural centrepiece of Maritime Greenwich. The College grew up on the site of the Tudor Palace in Greenwich, where Henry VIII and Elizabeth I were born.
William and Mary commissioned the buildings to house naval pensioners. The work was carried out by Sir Christopher Wren, Nicholas Hawksmoor (as Wren's assistant), Sir John Vanbrugh (successor to Wren) and others.
The site has been described as the "finest and most dramatically sited architectural and landscape ensemble in the British Isles".
We have modelled the Queen Mary Court - housing the Chapel - and the King William Court - housing the Painted Hall. Both towers are magnificent and will serve as wonderful bookends.
This is the model of Queen Mary Court.

The Bauhaus Dessau was designed by Walter Gropius in 1925 to house the Bauhaus design school. The building bares many similarities to his critically acclaimed Fagus Factory. The school was responsible for launching the Modern Movement and shaped much of the architecture of the 20th century.
The Bauhaus Dessau with its strong lines and simple form is an outstanding example of modernist architecture.

Chapelle Notre Dame du Haut was designed by the legendary architect Le Corbusier. It was built in 1955 and serves as a Roman Catholic chapel. It is located in Ronchamp.
The building is spectacular with a sculptural expressive style. The curved roof is of particular note, it has been described as "peeling up towards the heavens". Also of note are the irregular walls and the sporadic placement of the windows.
Once inside light and sound take centre stage - flooding the chapel and giving visitors a unique religious experience.
We have modelled three sides of this wonderful building.

Venice is an Italian city situated on a group of 117 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges. The name is derived from the ancient Veneti people who lived in the area in 10th century. It is thought to have been founded by refugees from the countryside fleeing Germanic and Hun invasions. Its strategic position at the head of the Adriatic sea helped in its developing into a city state and a major naval and commercial power. It was an important centre of commerce and art from the 13th to the 17th centuries. By the late 13th century, Venice was the most prosperous city in all of Europe. During the 18th century, Venice became perhaps the most elegant and refined city in Europe, greatly influencing art, architecture and literature.
The buildings of Venice are constructed on closely spaced wooden piles. Most of these piles are still intact after centuries of submersion. The foundations rest on plates of limestone placed on top of the piles, and buildings of brick or stone sit above these footings. The piles penetrate a softer layer of sand and mud until they reach a much harder layer of compressed clay. During the 20th century, when many artesian wells were sunk into the periphery of the lagoon to draw water for local industry, Venice began to subside. It was realised that extraction of water from the aquifer was the cause. The sinking has slowed markedly since artesian wells were banned in the 1960s.
It is an extremely beautiful city with setting, architecture and art all contributing. The lagoon, that stretches along the shoreline, and parts of the city are listed as a World Heritage Site. Venice has a rich and diverse architectural style, the most famous of which is the Gothic style. Venetian Gothic architecture is a term given to a Venetian building style combining use of the Gothic lancet arch with Byzantine and Ottoman influences. The style originated in 14th-century Venice, where the confluence of Byzantine style from Constantinople met Arab influence from Moorish Spain.
This 3d map of Venice, at a scale of 1:5000, is centred on the Canal Grande. It is a single resin tile measuring 30x30cm encapsulated in an oak frame. The model can wall hang or be displayed on a desk or table top.

The Hoover Buildings have long been heralded as a monument to the art deco movement. The Hoover Buildings, designed by Wallis, Gilbert and Partners, are magnificent and a real advertisment for the Hoover company. The beautiful facades were a revolution in the 1930's and the use of colour was especially bold with the light green window frames making the buildings unmistakable.
Chisel & Mouse have produced an architectural sculpture of "Building No.7". It was the last to be constructed and operated as the staff canteen and recreation centre.
Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.
