The Octan Office is a Lego MOC created by Łukasz Libuszewski. This Modular style building uses 2,542 pieces. The office is actually an alternate build of the Corner Garage (10264) Modular Building. It uses about 90% of the pieces from the original, and 240 or so pieces have been added. The ground floor features the Octan office and an automotive parts store. A small pet clinic takes up the second floor, and a small apartment gets the third floor all to itself. This Lego build features a lovely roof line, with some very steep slopes and sweeping curves. Besides the three modular floors, the back features two huge window sections that can be removed for easier access. If you find your Modular City has too many corner buildings, it may be time to try an alternate Corner Garage.
The designer of the Octan Office has drafted up a set of instructions, which goes over the 2,303 pieces conversion of the Corner Garage, and the 240 that you will need to add. That manual can be found for sale over here, and you can find more details, and more photos of the finished build: https://brickative.shoplo.com/category/modulars/octan-office
Spending all day writing code can be a lonely experience, so why not build your own little office worker. You can watch him work all day, instead of doing your work. This is the “Office Worker Lego Automaton” created by JK Brickworks. This little build features one office worker, one office chair, a PC style computer tower, a monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse, desk, mug, headphones, and a potted plant. All the stuff you need to compile code, pivot excel spread sheets, or play Doom. This Lego build is also an automaton. You can turn the crank and watch the little worker type. The design can even be motorized so he can work on his own. A neat feature is that the vignette can be modified to reflect your own settings. You can easily add duel monitors, change to a standing desk, change the speakers, change the potted plant, and modify the appearance of the worker. So compile code, commit to GitHub, and start debugging now with this Lego automaton.
This Lego Dentists Office is the creation of jarekwally. Somehow it looks like every dentists office ever built. The scene has the ever imposing dental chair, and all the machinery and tools that go with it. Apparently called a Dental Engine. It has the bright overhead light, the little sink, and all the hoses/cords too. There is a short stool, and even a rolling cabinet with what looks like a Novocaine shot. A desk with a computer for looking up records, and a whole lot of cabinets. The faucet for the sink in the back is a great detail, there is even a drain. Everything is spot on. This Lego Dentist office almost makes the whole thing look pleasant.
Built by grubaluk, this Lego MOC is called “Homer’s Home Office Assistant.” It is a reference to the classic episode from The Simpsons titled King Size Homer. Season 7 Episode 7. There is the Drinking Bird, which Homer uses to automate his job. By bouncing up and down the Bird keeps pressing the keyboard, which ends up tripling his productivity. The other office assistant is Snowball II. The cat that seems to be always hanging around. This Lego Snowball II is an extremely accurate build compared to the cartoon. The bright colors, and smooth (SNOT) techniques are all excellently done. As the safety inspector, can Homer Simpson keep the Nuclear Power Plant operating?
Lego has a new Calendar available, and it is way different then their older one. Its release date is January 17th, and comes in at $19.99, £15.99, €19.99. With 278 brightly colored pieces this will stand out wherever you put it. Huw, over at Brickset, has written up a full review of this new set. They note that this is a sturdy build. With superfluous pieces being used to help align the square shapes. It is an interesting review, that notes that the Brick Calendar is probably only good in very particular cases.
Lego builder Dave Kaleta has created an extremely realistic MOC based on his Lego studio. The project is titled “411C” and is named after the address of the studio space. This is a great workspace, featuring two huge desks, plenty of organized storage, unorganized storage, and even Lego mosaics hanging on the wall. This scene is made all the better by natural lighting and a huge window.
It is the details that make 411C so lifelike. Notice the glass jars on top of the shelving. The multicolored and differently shaped storage containers in the loft space. The well made mini mosaics. The feet holding up the main desk are especially well done, as is the slightly askew handles on the drawers. The desk chair is another great build, with a great use of a Lego propeller for the casters.
For this holiday season Lego has gifted some of their Employees an exclusive set. The Lego Hub: Birds (4002014) set features 487 pieces and is not averrable in stores. But, if you are lucky enough you may find a few of these listed for sale around the internet, but be prepared for high prices. This cute little set is in a new Lego Hub theme, which refers to employee offices (hubs) around the world. This may be a clue that more of these exclusive sets will be given away in the future. There is one bird per major Hub. There are five birds represented here, with what looks like a Sparrow, Stork, Swan, Robin, and an Eagle. If you have more information on the specific species of bird, please let us know.
Recently Lego Turkey revealed their new office space. Completed in 2014, these offices are located in Mecidiyekoy, Istanbul. Lego has focused on creating a workspace that feels unique while accommodating 23 personnel. The space itself is only 350 m², which works out to be about 3,750 ft². The super colorful space is inspired by Lego products as a way to strengthen the brand identity. The entrance and ceiling make references to the popular Lego brick, while Minifigures have been used on walls and partitions. Photographs of the original Lego employees and manufacturing plant are also used for wall treatments.
“In the office where a dynamic and modern design language has been adopted in general sense, it has been aimed to create venues which are integrated with the corporate identity, have high energy, and where comfort conditions are provided at a high level.” — OSO Architecture
Indiana Jones is a professor at the fictional Barnett College, located in Fairfield, New York. It is here that he is a professor of archaeology. Professor Jones is known to be very popular with his female students. Almost too popular. The creator of this great MOC is known on Flickr as PuCCi0. Here, PuCCio, has imagined and built Indiana Jones’ private artifact collection. There are a lot of tiny details, such as a snake, skull and crossbones, Thor’s hammer, and even a Stormtrooper helmet. A whole lot of these details have been hidden in the office clutter. It is hard to imagine if Indy can finish any work during office hours. This is probably why he is often out on location (Temple of Doom!).
