Sandro’s lighthouse is a timeless beacon that evokes a sense of adventure and mystery. To top it off the LEGO Group has never created one with such incredible details and at such a scale!

The inspiration for the set came his mother, who loves lighthouses, and was telling himto build one for years.
He once took a trip around the Gaspé Peninsula, a region of the province of Quebec, which is host to lighthouses of all shapes and sizes. We visited enormous stone lighthouses on rocky beaches and small, abandoned wooden lighthouses hidden behind the trees.
I guess these structures have always been in some corner of my mind since that trip many years ago. Seeing how different one lighthouse could be from another was impressive.
They’re sometimes titanic things that tower over every other building in the town they’re in, and sometimes they’re cosy little houses that calmly sit far away from civilization, in places where all you hear is the sound of waves crashing against rocks. For this project, I wanted to capture that towering essence of tall lighthouses, while also keeping with their solitary nature.
The LEGO Ideas team are now working to finalise the design of the product, and there isn’t any more details on price, piece count, or availability to share right now.
