Lego children's centre opens in Hillingdon

More than one million Lego bricks have been used to construct a new children's centre in Hillingdon, West London, which opened on 19 November.

Legoland Windsor modellers and WHAT_architecture worked with Hillingdon Council to build the Cowley St Laurence facility. Children using the venue will be encouraged to use natural resources to play, while services will also include parenting support and financial advice.

Hillingdon Council cabinet member for education and children's services David Simmonds said: "The borough's latest children's centre is very unique not only because it is made out of Lego, but the children have also been involved in the creative design of the building." Legoland Windsor chief model maker Guy Bagley added: "The children's centre looks amazing and the enthusiasm of everyone involved really shines through in the end result."
