New designs were unveiled for the LEGO world headquarters, and surprisingly enough, they did not include step-by-step picture guides on how to build the place.

Located in Billund, Denmark, the 52,000-sm complex will still incorporate many familiar themes from the popular plastic building block toys.

ArchDaily reports that the building, designed by Danish architecture firm CF Møller, will feature quirks like staircases that look like stacked bricks, studded facade panels, and round skylight apertures that call to mind holes in a LEGO block. The facility will use plenty of the distinctive LEGO yellow color, and it will even have a play place for employees.

Plans call for offices, a welcoming area, and a lot of open area for employees to collaborate. Community spaces will surround a four-story atrium, and a public park will sit outside.

CF Møller was considerate enough to propose using building materials that are much too large to be lost, ingested, or stepped on accidentally. 

A LEGO visitors center, designed by BIG, is being built down the street.
