LEGOs Inspire a 5,600 Square Foot Glass Superyacht

By: | July 20th, 2014

It’s every kid’s dream — to build something spectacular with LEGOs. Even grown ups want to get in on the building fun.

Designer Lujac Desautel, a student at the California College of the Arts, School of Architecture took inspiration from versatility of Lego bricks while stacking each floor of glass upon the other like a building block. What he came up with was a sleek and smooth glass superyacht inspired by skyscrapers and bricks of Lego.

His glass superyacht was nominated for the Boat International Young Designer of the Year competition. Competitors were asked to design a superyacht upon a SWATH (Small Water-plane Area Twin Hull) platform.

This megayacht features 5,600 square feet of roaming space and each floor is entirely dedicated to maximizing the living space for guests and crew on board. Glass is used to reflect the surroundings of the superyacht. It features glass elevators, floor-to-ceiling windows, several swimming pools, six guest bedrooms, an owner’s lounge, a family lounge and, of course, a children’s playroom.

The boat is organized vertically by three cubic volumes. The aft deck that lowers itself into the water provides additional outdoor space and is designed like an ancient Mayan temple.
