Something Different

September 5th, 2017 · Mark Lomas and Kirsten Wolfe, Real Estate Humor, Real Estate News, Santa Barbara Real Estate, Something Different

Something different. OK, this has little to do with Santa Barbara, but since it’s real estate related – and kind of curious?

How do you create a real building dedicated to toy blocks? By scaling them up.  That’s the idea behind the LEGO House, an official Lego museum meets theme park. Architectural firm Bjarke Ingels Group designed the 130,000 sq.ft. structure.  As a series of interlocking Lego-like blocks that house play zones, restaurants, a store, and gallery of Lego masterpieces.  Many spaces including the rooftop terraces will open at no charge to the public.

The LEGO House opens its doors  September 28, 2017 .   Also known as “Home of the Brick”,  the Lego House is fittingly located in Billund, Denmark, where the LEGO brick was invented and the adventure began. The LEGO House offers children and adults a fascinating opportunity to combine bricks and creativity.
