EverBlock | The Meaning of Modular

EverBlock | The Meaning of Modular

The EverBlock System was designed to allow you to build nearly anything.

Reflect your individuality and build amazing things with our modular system of over-sized plastic building blocks.

Building is fun and takes mere minutes. It is also quick and simple to take apart and reassemble into hundreds of other objects, structures and designs.

EverBlock comes in three block sizes; Full Block, Half Block, Quarter Block and a Finishing Cap that interlocks to create a flat smooth top surface. These varying block sizes allow for an unlimited building potential and designs.

EverBlock heads to the World Trade Center for Life-size Architectural Modeling

EverBlock's expert design-and-build duo, Ben MacKrell and Arnon Rosan, headed to the World Trade Center's 84th floor to assist in the installation of a life-size model hotel room earlier this May.

The project is for an upcoming renovation of a 1960's NYC landmark building (we'll be sure to tell you where as soon as we can!), so it was only natural that the life-size rendering also took place in an iconic NYC building. And what a view! One World Trade certainly lives up to its impressive stature, inside and out.

Construction on the site is set to begin this coming August, but until then, designs are not yet set in stone. So EverBlock was brought in to assist with the remodeling plans. While designs and layouts are finalized, the construction company, developers, and architects will be able to play and plan in a truly to-scale model of their projected hotel rooms. They can breakdown the block walls into various configurations; moving a HVAC column or doorway threshold from one place to another, creating single bedrooms, suites and more.

All the stake holders were on site for the initial build. The plans were taped out on the floor and as Ben put it, they "colored between the lines" with the blocks, building a full bedroom, bathroom and hallway. Model furniture was laid out and moved around as well; bed frames and bathroom vanities repositioned at whim. The whole full scale build, with turns and curves and columns took under two hours to complete; a seemingly simple project for such extraordinary benefits. Now the engineering team involved will be able to fully immerse themselves in the actual, physical architecture and decor of the room to make the best possible decisions about design and function. 

This experiential prototype allows the planners to test different dimensions and get the full feeling of the space. It becomes easier to communicate different aspects of the architectural and structural design as well as envision decor and accent choices when working in true to size and not just miniature cardboard scale models. The existing architecture of the WTC played a role in the building of each space. Having windows with actual skyline views where the windows are meant to be in the hotel room, is a pretty cool feature!

At the completion of the dry-run planning, EverBlock's team will head back to the WTC and disassemble the walls of blocks, pack them back on the pallets and ship back to the warehouse in the Bronx. The architects and development crews will take their finalized plans and go on to revamp this forgotten landmark back to the legendary status it deserves.

H-O-T design inspiration to help give you that extra C-O-O-L

The summer weather is not the only thing heating up at EverBlock Systems. Our customers and agents across the country and the globe have been busy building EverBlock creations that are H O T - H O T - H O T !!!!!


Our customers state-side have been freshening up their homes with creative installations. EverBlock is so easy to use--you don't need tools or glue and you certainly don't need to be a rocket scientist to assemble your project! A couple of extra pairs of hands should do the trick--so call the kids, neighbors and even your Great-Aunt Sue!

Though the household applications for EverBlock are limitless, we've also seen some creative and FUN designs built in commercial spaces as well. Citra Lighting in Ann Arbor, Michigan designed an elegant divider wall for their office space. Utilizing the staggered opening wall design and a few pops of color to highlight their corporate logo, they turned what could have been a boring necessity into a featured talking point! 

CrossFit Outbreak in Brooklyn, New York brought in EverBlock to create a much-deserved lounge area for their members. With a couple of thrones and a dual coffee table/ottoman in their iconic black and orange colors, CrossFit extended their coolness, from the weight room to the wait-ing room.


Moving abroad, our agents and customers overseas have designed and built some brilliant constructions in the special event world. Our friends at EverBlock Hire in the UK, a division of Four Seasons Marquees, have designed impressive wet bars for parties and events. Illuminating our translucent blocks with LED lighting, they've heightened the nightlife experience. They've even played with a colorful brick pattern for a cheerful display with custom built bar racks behind using integrated EverBlock Shelving.

In Singapore at the Shangri-La Hotel, custom catering buffet stands were built using EverBlock in a dramatic, architectural fashion. They combined design and function seamlessly, entertaining their guests with both the refreshments and the artistic displays as well.

A littler further North in Japan, stunning, multi-unit reception counters were built for a large-scale professional event. EverBlock delivered quality design construction with an eye-popping twist of lettering in the facade. 


With EverBlock, the possibilities are truly endless. Build anything you can dream of. All it takes is a little IMAGINATION and INSPIRATION. Utilize different pattern layouts to achieve different styles. Update existing creations with new pops of color. Repurpose outdated pieces into something brand new and totally different! EverBlock is available globally and our reach is expanding each day. What will you build?
