For Turkey's very first Lego HQ, Turkish firm OSO architecture whipped up this super-bright, incredibly on-brand office in Istanbul, with a compact build designed for 23 employees, and as many references as possible to the blocks beloved by amateurs and starchitects alike. The ceiling in the reception area, for example, appears to be made from oversized plastic bricks, while the iconic yellow and red logo colors line every other available surface. Tiny block-headed characters even march along the glass partition walls that divide the floor's many meeting rooms. In a major, note-worthy departure from the "cool office" norm, the "social areas have been kept to a minimum," with just a few picnic bench-like pods for hanging out. Take a look, below:
