Fjordenhus -several yards out into the waters of Denmark’s Vejle Fjord, connected to the shore by a footbridge and a subterranean tunnel, is the new office of investment and holding company Kirk Kapital – owned by three brothers directly descended from LEGO founder Ole Kirk Kristiansen.

Designed by the studio of Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, the structure is composed of 970,000 bricks formed into four intersecting cylinders. The ground floor of the structure is accessible by the public.
