Together with City of Copenhagen, Via Trafik and Rekommanderet, COBE has transformed different ideas from local workshops into a vision for a renewal of Nørrebro Station area in Copenhagen. The vision creates a coherent public space that is more than just a transit area, but also a destination in itself. The new Nørrebro Station will unite the city and erase the existing divide in the area by opening up the existing highline, and creating a series of new urban spaces inside and around it.

Yesterday, the City of Copenhagen awarded Nørreport’s bicycle beds the “Skub Op” Award 2015. The award is granted to a project that helps raise the standards for the municipality’s effort in improving the conditions for cyclists. Nørreport's bicycle beds are areas for bicycle parking, which is placed 40 cm below the city floor, in order to create a clear hierarchy between the area for bicycles and the area for city life.
