When you think about LEGO bricks the thought that instantly crosses your mind is what more can be done with them? As we have seen so many LEGO brick wonders in the past few years it comes as no surprise that yet another one is here to amaze us. Melissa Marks and interface designer Vicente Caride decided to revamp their 1,500 house in Manhattan especially the section of doorway and staircase leading to their son Archie’s room. Since their child is ten years old now so they decided to renovate the staircase and wall made completely in LEGOS because just like other kids; Archie loves LEGO bricks. To top it off Melissa has a very keen interest in geometric abstract designs so they set off on building the project.
But the problem was that they had little knowledge on how LEGO bricks could be used for constructing such designs so they decided to commission world famous Queens-based LEGO artist Sean Kenney (one who build Empire state Building replica standing four feet tall) along with two assistants to complete the Manhattan LEGO job.
It took them around 140 working hours and 20,000 LEGO bricks to accomplish this feat. The end result was a cool looking LEGO brick wall and staircase that looks just like some 3D arcade video game interface. The staircase is still in works and looks almost complete and the goal of making a living space with enough segregated space for Mark’s studio was also solved.
