I love Lego, but I'd most likely never hit upon an idea to incorporate it into an interior design. Apparently, possibilities those little, colourful blocks give do not end on building sky-high towers and marvelous spaceships. This apartment in New York City is a proof that experiments with combinations of various themes, materials, and parts can produce truly wonderful result.
The owners wanted a playful space for both themselves and their 10-year-old son and the designers at I-Beam Design, along with LEGO master builder Sean Kenney, have most certainly met the task. It took roughly two weeks and more than 20 000 Lego bricks to build the entire staircase and loft wall. There are also stylish drawings on the walls and colourful elements that enliven the interior.
The rest of the apartment features a neutral, elegant style. White walls correspond nicely with similarly hued furniture. There's a lot of space for daily activities as well as fun and family time. I could easily see myself playing with Lego bricks on that welcoming soft wooden floor in the kitchen.
