Incredible Manhattan Staircase and Loft Covered in 20,000 Lego Bricks

One lucky New York City kid has the coolest staircase and loft ever. Our favorite professional Lego builder, Sean Kenney (yes that’s his real job!!!) has done it again with his Lego Staircase and Loft commissioned by a Manhattan family. It took two weeks to put together the 20,000 Lego pieces needed to make the 10 feet long, 9.5 feet tall, and 6 feet wide stairs.

As you can see, there are actually steel and wooden support beams in the middle of the railing for safety. Sean does use glue as well to keep them from being destroyed by an errant drop kick. Of course using glue as they go along leaves no room for error.

The loft is ten feet up in the air, adding to the difficulty of constructing this. The homeowners even gave some input on the project’s design as he went along.

Awesome work. What kid wouldn’t want their room covered in Legos? (via curbed)
