lego car park billund denmark

Lego in Life

A touch of whimsy and nostalgia has been added to the Lego carpark in Billund, Denmark. The carpark that will be used for both Legoland visitors and those working in the offices was designed by Ravn Arkitektur, whilst the delightful facades are the work of CEBRA, a Danish architecture studio.

The exteriors take their inspiration from Lego’s City road plates, a child-friendly design first created in the late 70s, and still proving popular today. The plan was to create a facade that reflected the company’s products and history, and after tens of plans the City road plates were decided on, an apt design for a carpark.

The panel designs are scaled up to create a strong visual impact, whilst the small dots making up the road markings are made to the specifications of standard Lego bricks. This feature allows for the application of bricks along the facade, something sure to delight visitors old and young alike.

The carpark exterior is a great expression of the company, combining an element of fun into one of life’s dullest of structures. Not only does the design add playfulness, it enables a flow of light, a creative take on the neutral, and variety in place of expected monotony.
