COBE wins the competition for the future development of the Paper Island, also known as Christiansholm, in Copenhagen's inner harbor. With a prime location right across from the Opera House and the Royal Danish Playhouse, the Paper Island is the crown jewel of the inner harbour. Together with Inside Outside, Transsolar and Via Trafik we envision a series of new halls for informal, public functions, building on the island's current status as a vibrant urban destination in central Copenhagen.
