It wouldn’t be a great leap of imagination to think that the Lego Head Offices in Denmark look like the Lego house James May built.
But they’re a lot cooler, and a lot more comfortable. True to Danish simplicity and elegance that is the hallmark of Lego itself, the offices are large and open with primary colours splashed about to add interest.
Lego is derived from Danish ‘leg godt’ which means ‘to play’. The office space reflects this with open plan design, communal meeting spaces, and all kinds of Lego memorabilia displayed.
Are stairs too boring? Take the slide to the floor below…
… Where you can enjoy a game of foosball.
But when things need to get serious, there are screened off meeting areas with comfy couches, colour-coded meeting rooms, and sleek designer desks.
(Slideshow) Bizarre Buildings
From a germ-free building to one built in a bomb shelter, we take a look at some of the strangest yet functional buildings around the world.
The Bubble Building. This inflatable, antibacterial building was designed to keep out germs in the Shanghai city centre. While it may resemble a giant jumping castle, if built it will provide an ultra-clean office space.
The building could be created using inflatables made of white antibacterial nylon that are placed around the exterior of an ordinary office building.

As Cool as on TV
Web.tv – where your office looks like a film set.
We all dream of cool offices, but most of us only get as far as customising our desk area with a few photos and a gadget or two. But check out video social networking company Web.tv’s awesome offices. Located in Turkey, the sprawling building hosts over 200 employees and offers a range of stations for any kind of mood, be it social, relaxing, or a quiet spot to focus.
Since work is where we spend a large portion of our day, Web.tv decided to make it a fun place to be, with themed offices that are caves, ski lifts, a sail boat, a stage, bar, café, you name it. Scroll on and be amazed.
The stage space allows workers to enjoy their hobbies like playing in a band, staging short plays, reciting poetry.
“My office is a cave… no, really”
Feel like you need a break from work? Take a pause in one of the ski lift rest areas.
Because every office needs a boat desk to bring on good ideas.
When the day is done and a well-deserved drink is in order, just pop down stairs to the company’s own bar. Wonder if the drinks are subsidised…?
Need a quiet space to reflect and be intellectual? Try the library room – even if the books are just printed wallpaper…
This cute office looks like a blown-up doll’s house.
We’re not even sure what they were thinking with this cotton ball, igloo, snowball meeting room…
There’s even a gym with TV screens that show jogging routes linked to the outside world.
But before you go thinking these people have got a little slice of heaven, even Web.tv has a cubical farm.
