After five years of construction and planning, the LEGO Group celebrated the official opening of its state-of-the-art Campus at its headquarters in Billund, Denmark.
Designed by C.F. Møller Architects, the campus spans 54,000 square metres, creating an innovative workplace for approx. 2000 colleagues, and a home away from home for all LEGO Group colleagues across the world.
Reflecting the LEGO Group values of ‘Imagination, Fun, Creativity, Caring, Learning, and Quality’, the Campus has been designed to provide a playful, inclusive, and collaborative environment that enables employees to develop the best play experiences for children all over the world.
An important element in LEGO Campus is the ‘People House’ a concept developed in close collaboration with employees that provides a space for all colleagues to network and play during and after working hours. With initial designs first developed in 2014, the ‘People House’ is just one of the many features across the campus that enables a more flexible environment to work and play and is reflective of the hybrid working style that is in place across the LEGO Group. Created as a place for relaxation, inspiration and recharging, the ‘People House’ features facilities including: a state-of-the-art fitness studio, creative workshop space, a LEGO homestay for visiting employees, a cinema, outside park and activity zone, kitchen for communal cooking and networking and a health clinic. Employees’ families are also welcome to use the facilities.
The Campus also features:
– Special gypsum fibreboard – which saved 650,000 kg of CO2 emissions during construction, additionally 1000 tons of construction waste was recycled during the construction process
– Sedum plants on roof surfaces collecting rainwater which irrigates the surrounding green spaces
– Workplace waste is sorted into 10 different categories
– Flexible and open workspaces with “green” partitions of plants and planters
– All outdoor furniture was made from waste LEGO Bricks. 5000 kg of LEGO waste has been recycled.
– A focus on biodiversity with a wealth of indigenous plants, trees and natural environments planted to support wildlife
LEGO Campus officially opened April 5th for all LEGO colleagues and their families. Celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, the LEGO group has grown from a small carpenter’s workshop to a brand present in more than 130 countries worldwide.
To celebrate, employees were gifted an Architecture model of the campus.
