The Danish architecture firm C.F. Møller has designed the new office complex, which is to serve as the global gathering point at the Lego Group's headquarters in Billund. As such it is to be a workplace and fun place, a collaborative space and play space.
The new complex has been given shapes and colours inspired by Lego bricks, and is designed to provide optimum daylight for the total office space and to ensure low energy consumption. It is to include areas of indoors greenery plus a publicly accessible park will also be coming about.
"We want a distinct office building that clearly conveys the LEGO values, and which truly expresses the creative, innovative culture of our company. I am very excited that we can now present our vision for this new building, both to our employees and to the community", says Claus Flyger Pejstrup, Senior Vice President at the LEGO Group, and responsible for the LEGO Group Headquarters in Denmark.
Altogether 52,000 square metres of play and work space will be coming about. An integral part of the new office building will be the Lego People House, an area housing facilities for various activities that the employees have suggested.
