덴마크 빌룬드에 위치한 레고 캠퍼스 내, 새로운 오피스 건물이 완성되었다. CF Møller Architects가 설계한 오피스 외관은 레고블럭을 연상시키는 거대한 블럭으로 디자인 되었다. BIG가 설계한 방문자센터와 인접한 두개의 오피스 건물은 레고 캠퍼스를 위한 첫번째 단계로 제안된다. 외관 이미지는 물론 내부 또한 레고의 독특한 아이텐티를 표현하는 디자인을 반영하였다.
CF Møller Architects has completed two office buildings on the Lego campus in Billund, Denmark, which include giant building blocks in the facades.
Located a few streets away from the Lego's visitor centre by BIG, the two office buildings mark the completion of the first phase of the toy company's 52,000-metre-squared headquarters.
Århus studio CF Møller Architects designed the offices with bold, geometric forms reminiscent of Lego bricks, which are also playfully adorned with giant versions of the building blocks.
According to the studio partner Klaus Toustrup, this idea was informed by a painting in the office of Lego's owner Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, which portrays a child proudly presenting his lego creation.
"The task was to design a super-flexible rational office building, but also a building that could support the strong corporate values and the culture of Lego," explained Toustrup.
"The painting of the boy and his Lego creation in the Lego owner's office captured this and has been our inspiration and guideline throughout the process," he added. "We can learn a lot from the playful and imaginative world that exists in our children."The material palette of the two buildings, which is dominated by wood and brick, is intended to evoke "light Nordic expression".
This is brightened by the incorporation of the Lego bricks and yellow panels on the facades, and a giant Lego-like building block that overhangs one of the roofs. When the campus reaches completion, these will double as wayfinding graphics – with each building distinguished by its own colour.
