Innovative & playful architecture
LEGO’s imaginative and playful corporate culture is reflected in the new headquarters innovative and creative architecture designed by C.F. Møller Architects. The inspiration for the new complex comes from a picture of a boy proudly showing his LEGO house. This unfolds clearly in the inventive composition of the eight buildings and the large-scale LEGO bricks in GRC which adorn the facade.
Sustainability was very important in the construction of this complex and that included the choice of building materials. GRC is a extreme durable material, with a lifespan of more than 100 years, and does not require technical maintenance. The material and the production of GRC if environmentally friendly without any toxic materials and a low consumption of energy. Read more about the sustainability of GRC.
BB fiberbeton manufactured 30 large scale facade elements formed as LEGO bricks. The LEGO bricks are produced in BBf no.92 light grey and are mounted with embedded steel frames. This project is another example of the creativity and formability possible with GRC.
Through design and manufacturing we help architects, entrepreneurs, and builders create unique, durable, and sustainable facades. Whether you are starting construction on a new build or embarking on a renovation project, GRC is suitable for both.
Glassfibre reinforced concrete (GRC or GFRC) is incredibly versatile and grants you an architectural design freedom with almost endless possibilities. With the formability of GRC you can achieve any geometry and with a surface designed for your specific project. GRC is a lightweight material and our cladding elements are typically only 12 mm. Thus, making it easier to work with and transport whilst also easing the load on buildings.
GRC is an excellent facade material if durability and sustainability is of great concern and importance. GRC is durable for more than 100 years without any technical maintenance and it does not dent, rot, corrode, nor burn (class A material). With a sustainable material and an environmentally friendly production without toxic materials, GRC elements from BB fiberbeton are ideal for environmental certifications, such as LEED, DGNB, and BREEAM.
GRC is made of white cement and fine aggregates and reinforced with glassfibre. Elements are produced using a special spray-technique that allows for a low water/cement-ratio, a low thickness, and a high strength.
