LEGO House in Billund was designed by BIG Architects, who developed the concept of a house built out of 21 giant white LEGO bricks that not only create space for indoor activities but also form a maze of linked roof terraces and public playgrounds. We were assigned the task of creating 9 playgrounds, with a storyline and concept that matched LEGO’s imaginative universe.

IT’S ALL  ABOUT THE  JOURNEY

The concept of the playgrounds is inspired by the images on the front of the LEGO packaging. They always depict a scenario showing the toys in action - like the LEGO man skydiving from a plane, a construction site busy with work or a fun hangout time on a boat.

The playgrounds are like these scenarios – 9 adventurous ways to get to LEGO House. Just imagine arriving in a hot air balloon, a rocket or maybe even in a submarine?

These stories are placed around the many rooftops of the house, creating a maze of dramatic exploration.

SURFING ON DANGEROUS WATERS?

The attack of the shark playground consists of 5 surfboards on springs, a shark's head and a buoy to float on.

The surfacing on the playground is formed like waves to emphasize the experience of the battle at sea, and the surfboards have springs to simulate the feeling of surfing.

The giant swing behind the camel consists of 7 different swings - each with its own challenge. The short swing has the fastest pace but the taller ones will reach even higher up in the sky.
