Instead of building your next LEGO house in your living room you may want to go see the real deal instead. Toy company LEGO announced on Wednesday their new experience center, the “LEGO House,” will open its doors to the public in September, in Billund, Denmark.

Envisioned by Copenhagen and New York-based architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group, the LEGO House features an imaginative design composed of 21 huge blocks, interlocking and stacked on top of each other. On top of the structure, an oversized 2×4 LEGO block named the “keystone” will act as the focal point of the piece. The LEGO House stands at a height of 23 meters (75 feet) and has an enclosed floor area of 12,000 square meters (129,167 square feet).

The “home of the brick” was designed to construct a playful and creative experience for children and adults. The structure features paid attractions as well as free open spaces for the public to roam and enjoy.

In the building’s basement, visitors can learn about LEGO’s past with their history collection. On the ground level, guests can explore a store, three restaurants, conference facilities and a 2,000 square meter public square.

The first and second storeys are where the fun happens, as four play areas will be arranged based on color: red is creative, blue is cognitive, green is social and yellow is emotional. The top floor will house a masterpiece gallery and outdoor terraces to take in the scenery.

Construction of the LEGO House began in early 2014 and is expected to officially open on September 28th, 2017.
