CF Møller are designing a new building complex behind a global hub for the LEGO Group. A 52,000 sq m building and a large, public park a framework for jobs, new communities, flexible work arrangements and sustainability are planned for the site in Billund, Denmark.
The construction is based on LEGO values and its innovative culture, both to act as a workplace and playground for employees. It brings together bright, flexible offices around a spectacular atrium with familiar LEGO elements and colours, while the ground floor provides a coherent LEGO People House with space for social and physical activities bordered by a new public park.
The extensive new construction will house a large portion of LEGO's Danish-based employees, while at the same time will have space for a wide range of community facilities and to receive guests from outside, not least LEGO employees from around the world.
The complex will be the place where disciplines meet, where experience is exchanged, where new ideas are born, and where inspiration is encouraged.
A central part of the new building will be LEGO People House, an area that contains common facilities for a wide range of activities in an informal and inspiring atmosphere. The LEGO People House is designed following the systematic involvement of the LEGO Group's own employees.
Klaus Toustrup CF Møller CEO explains: “LEGO's vision is to invent tomorrow's game, and we have emphasized this in the architecture. It is a place for collaboration and games for both employees and the public.”
The building integrates itself in the Master Plan for the Municipality of Billund, in addition to focusing on new and flexible working practices it also focuses on low energy consumption, green communities and optimum daylight conditions.
