CF Møller unveils playful design for Lego’s Danish HQ

Scandinavian architect CF Møller has designed an office complex for the Lego group in Billund, Denmark, which it describes as a "workplace and fun place".

CF Møller is working with fellow Danish firms Niras as consultant engineer and Kirkbi as contractor.

The 52,000 square metre building and park are the framework for "flexible workplaces, new communities, new ways of working and sustainability".

The architect says the design is based on Lego’s "values and innovative culture, to serve as both workspace and play space for employees".

The project has flexible office spaces around a "spectacular atrium with familiar Lego features and colors, while the ground floor is a coherent Lego People House with spaces for social and physical activities surrounded by a public park".

The building will house a large portion of Lego’s Danish-based employees, while at the same time providing spaces for a wide range of community facilities.

The Lego People House includes shared facilities for a variety of activities in an informal and inspirational atmosphere.

Klaus Toustrup, CF Møller’s chief executive, said: "The complex will be the place where disciplines meet, experiences are exchanged, ideas are born and inspiration is encouraged.

"Working closely with Lego and its staff, we have made sure that the project is all about openness, quality and all-round sustainability, all of them core Lego values."

Lego employs 4,000 staff in Denmark.
