Highly compact and designed in accordance with an intense requirement program, the Lego Turkey building – completed by O.S.O Mimarlık Tasarım – have been generally planned in an open-office construction to relieve the intensity.
Lego Turkey is located in Mecidiyekoy, Istanbul with their offices within an area of 350 sqm. The location as the first office of the company located in Turkey has a staff consisting of 23 personnel.
The reception and the small meeting room are located close to the entrance and at the center, while the open office areas are located next to these places. All of the manager and director offices have been planned to be along the facade due to their natural light and view advantage.
The social areas in the office have been kept to a minimum because of the services provided by the building where the offices are located and abovementioned compact planning setup. In this sense two multipurpose loggias have been designed. These spaces are intended for both socialization, and also the informal meetings in the office. In addition, there is a large meeting room on the right side of the entrance hall and at a directly accessible position. This meeting room for 14 persons is connected to a storage area that allows for brand product display.
The interior design has been inspired from the Lego products to strengthen the emphasis on the belonging to the brand identity of the designed spaces. In this respect, the entrance hall and the ceiling of the reception have been designed in Lego Brick form. In addition, Lego Minifigures have been used both on the walls and also on glass partitions.
Lego’s corporate colors have been used on different surfaces and in different forms in all places, and a kind of harmony has been achieved in the interior design. In addition, acoustic comfort has been increased by taking special acoustic measures throughout the office. In this respect, high-density rockwool panels have been used for the open office ceilings. These panels have been integrated with luminaries thanks to the designed hanging and connection details and have been transformed into design elements. Moreover, double-glazing has been applied to all of the room partitions, and for all enclosed volumes – different from the open office – carpets have been used, and thus, acoustic comfort has been increased.
