Airbnb winners stay in the new attraction overnight
A family of four from Scotland were selected in an Airbnb competition to stay in the LEGO House, the new children’s paradise in Denmark filled with more than 25 million LEGO bricks constructed into countless shapes and sculptures.
“Tucked into bed beneath a giant LEGO waterfall of almost 2 million bricks, sisters Izzy and Heather had the perfect end to an extraordinary day with their mum and dad in the newly built LEGO House in Denmark,” reads the press release generated from their stay.
The Woollacott family from Johnshaven, Aberdeenshire won the experience out of over 24,000 entries, by answering one question: If you had an unlimited supply of LEGO bricks, what would you build?
The two sisters, aged four and seven, “charmed the judges with their joint submission that paired Heather’s passion for space travel with Izzy’s dream of opening up her own noodle restaurant”.
It was made an extra special trip because Izzy celebrated her fifth birthday on Saturday.
“Nothing could be more awesome than waking up on your fifth birthday in the LEGO House, so it’s going to be a tough act to follow next year!” said her parents.
The new playhouse for Lego fans opened at the company’s headquarters in Billund on September 28, looking like it was built with giant Lego bricks. Designed by Danish architects Bjarke Ingels Group, the 2000m2 structure resembles 21 massive interlocking bricks. It has four coloured ‘experience zones’, while in the ‘masterpiece gallery’ visitors can show off their own creations.
