The Cheesegrater
Leadenhall Building (AKA The Cheesegrater) is a 225 m tall skyscraper in the heart of London's commercial area - The City.
About this creation
Built for Bright Bricks.

Our client wanted us to build a large model (1:100 scale / 2.25m tall) to be displayed in the building's lobby. They also wanted this smaller model/set scaled at 1:1,000 / 22.5cm tall.

This was my original version before it was slightly refined for mass production.



























Hope you like it. You can find higher quality photos on my Flickr page.

Great work of Lego "Cheesy" creationism! Sorry, I could not help it! LOL Well Joe most of the time I am a loss for words so I will borrow another great Lego creator's comment "Ravishingly Beautiful!" Well done!

I'm not very found of architecture but now... That's very interesting and cleverly made! The result is stunning. Great job. Waiting for the maxi-one.

Very clever creation. I read the title thinking, "this is going to have a lot of cheese wedges" ;) Nice work!

Amazing building! I thought it was much bigger from the thumbnails, very clever techniques for the angled side, pretty good job.

The use of cheese-graters in the actual model is a brilliant touch.

Quoting matt rowntRee Beautifully done, Joe! I'm impressed with the proportions and the angle, they're spot on. Love how you built the lobby. Should we be expecting the "Gherkin" next or Heron Tower? Excellent!
Hi matt. well before I joined the company they mad a set of the Gherkin but we have not been asked by Heron... ...yet.

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! I was expecting some cheese in this post. There is neither cheese or grating. I'm appalled! Great micro-scale building, though. :)
Hahah I did use one cheese slope and three cheese graters :D

Quoting manthanboeing MAD Good stuff!, but no triangular beams at the bottom? You could probably have 90* (1x1 knob) bricks in the bottom beams you have now, and move on from there, it might look too thick though, not really sure.
Hi manthan. Yes there are ways but as this was designed as a set it must be easy to build and use as few pieces as possible - just like Lego group.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti That's awesome! This is for mass production by Lego or Bright Bricks, and are you building the larger version? Inquiring minds want to know :-)
Hi Clayton, We will produce the set, box and instructions and give them to the client for distribution. We often make sets (the fish I did a few months ago was another) and I hope to post a few more soon. I also helped build the big one but as it was a collaboration with others I wont post it. Thanks for the interest mate :D

This'd be a nice Architecture set. You might like to know the the results of Sam's 15 piece contest are in - and you won! Congrats :-)

That's cool! Thought it was an ACTUAL cheese grater at first, but then I read the description. Nice work!

I went online to see what the actual building looks like. You did a great job capturing that structure.
