The Danish artist has created his first building in the Vejle Fjord in Denmark. The building itself is called Fjordenhus and it houses the headquarters of  Kirk Kapital, founded by the descendants of the founder of Lego.

It’s the first time that Studio Eliasson entirely designs a building, but they have previously collaborated on other projects such as the Serpentine Pavilion back in 2007.

Fjordenhus is built with concrete but covered by 970.000 bricks made of 15 different colours including blue, green and silver. It is part of a greater plan of a wider development plan for the Vejle harbour.
