Hasu - Lotus Traditional Suites

Hello! Part two of the duo contest submission. This is officially my favourite contest since I do have a small reputation for modern building, although I did choose to make this one oriental instead. According to the background story (by PMC and myself), this is linked to my past projects Tsuri-dōrō and Levia One, most notably through the hexagon shape. Would've been more interesting if there was more space......

Anyways, this penthouse includes a variety of detail such as redstone devices/lamps, custom player heads (supplied by Quality Heads), banners and armor stands. You may walk through banners and invisible armor stands. 

EDIT: This won first place! I was taken aback by this, I thought maximum I should've gotten was third instead, but WOW! Thank you guys so much for your support!

IMPORTANT NOTE:
- In order to see the creeper trophy case, the difficulty MUST BE SET TO AT LEAST EASY (I have disabled mobs spawning/griefing and fires spreading just in case). 
- If you want armor stands to disappear, you must go near and type "/kill @e[r=2,type=ArmorStand]" in chat.
- There is only a slight chance sugar cane may fall all the way down when broken by pistons.
** Message me if you think any redstone lamp/device/banners/armor stands are faulty, I'll make a quick fixed update to it! **

FUN FACT:  In Modern Japanese Homes, the reception area of the house includes a ornamental altar called the Tokonoma. It is dedicated to house many decorations such as plants, arts and a hanged scroll. It is customary for the most important guest to be seated facing away from this altar so that the host isn't seen showing off the decorations to the guest. Stepping on it is strictly forbidden, except to change the decorations.

Background Story
Steve had arrived in a strange waterworld dominated by many factions and humungous beasts. All around his makeshift raft, spectacular races of Leviathans and battleships raged through the sea, hardly missing the audience passenger ships, one of which Steve was plucked from the waters. The passengers consisted of many races ranging from reptiles to merfolk and humans. Almost all of them had praised the name "MatrIX", something he was already familiar with in the past. 

The Lotus faction was the first to welcome him to their grand capital city of Mustarimarishu. Unlike the rest of the water-based factions, their highly developed city was based on fertile, vegetated land. Towering skyscrapers must appear to accommodate thousands of inhabitants each, interconnected by a vast network of magnetic roads, tubes and railways. The building style was beyond the modern architecture which he already couldn't comprehend at home.

However, he was led far inland. He could see large bonsai trees that hung lanterns the size of apartments. The wide road led to the tallest building he had ever seen, entitled "Hasu Traditional Suites". Its architecture was completely different from the main city. The isolated building comprised of endless wooden beams, balconies and pagodas, very much like a Japanese castle extrapolated beyond the skies. 

The process of registration was strange - it had already been done by someone else. Some special observer, which he assumed to be Matre, had fully paid for Steve's luxurious hospitality in the highest penthouse of the planet. The interior was magnificently laid out infused with traditional Japanese decor and inspiration of his own world. Since Matre had considered Steve an ambitious adventurer, he presented to Steve the many familiar materials and monster remains from The Infinite Lands.

Steve called this penthouse as his new home... In the planet of Terra.

I want to build more, just haven't had the time. I'll do my best to start uploading some things, but i just need time to build. If you have any suggestions as to a building you'd like to see, feel free to shoot me a message or something. I've been planning some big ideas, but don't have the time to really hash them out, and i haven't been to inspired for small, single building projects in a while. I also wanted to give a long overdue update to that architecture blog i was working on. Again, congratulations. I still remember being in awe at your sea turtle, and this proves you can tackle the fine details as well as the large scale builds. Also, i just realized i wasn't subscribed to you, i have righted that :)

Really cool idea with the banners. They fit the style perfectly and are probably more realistic than blocks would be considering what those sorts of walls are actually made of.
