Entering Lego’s brand-spanking new workspace in the heart of Kowloon is like stepping back into childhood – beginning right with the reception. The welcoming and airy space is tastefully decked out in sunny yellows and reds and is adorned – of course – with oodles of Lego bricks.
It’s a collaborative environment where fun meets function. Designed by Danish, London and Hong Kong the new office channels the best of Scandinavian style while also assimilating a strong ‘Hong Kong theme’ through lots of design details with strong local cultural elements – to pay tribute to Hong Kong and connect to local employees.
The stunning mosaic on the main interior office wall features signature Hong Kong buildings with its trademark local transportation of double-decker trams and red taxis – and is composed of over 170,000 Lego bricks.
The workspace also depicts Kowloon and Hong Kong Island respectively with iconic local street plates such as Lan Kwai Fong and Nathan Road. Meeting rooms are named as Hong Kong landmarks (such as Victoria Harbour, The Peak and Star Ferry) as voted for by the local employees.
Lego’s new office boasts state-of-the-art digital system and furniture to boost work efficiency, productivity and business innovation. It’s equipped with a global online booking system which can easily connect counterparts from any local offices within the Lego family.
Meeting rooms are built with double-glazed windows to reduce noise. And each meeting room is installed with an individual Wi-Fi network and equipped with a sophisticated Cisco Room Kit system with auto face detection that enables a high-quality video collaboration experience – while the height-adjustable desks encourage employees to adjust their posture throughout the day and improve their daily work experience.
