Cobe to transform industrial harbour into new mixed-use neighborhood in Trondheim

We are excited to share the news, that Cobe has won the competition to develop Nyhavna in Trondheim.

The key feature of our masterplan is to ensure the proximity to the fjord and accessibility for everyone, by establishing a generous waterfront park with a sequence of urban spaces for various use and seasonal change. All buildings are built in wood and reuse the footprint and foundations from the existing warehouses on the site today,. The colorful scheme is a tribute to Trondheim's existing, historical wooden buildings. Nyhavna will become a mixed-use harbour front neighborhood with housing and workplaces.

The project is developed together with Topic Architecture, Olav Olsen, and Moe Denmark for Nyhavna Utvikling.

Cobe opens in-studio café in collaboration with Copenhagen Dockside

Cobe and Copenhagen Dockside will work as the intermezzo between street and studio to create a cozy lobby vibe, where both Cobe’s guests and employees, neighbors and passers-byers can have a coffee, breakfast or a quick lunch, read a magazine, have an informal meeting, buy a book or take a look at the latest architecture models straight from the studio. The models in the café are all smaller versions of Cobe’s buildings and projects, thus the café hosts the unique opportunity to come inside and see where the surrounding architecture is born, and then go for a walk in Nordhavnen and the rest of Copenhagen and experience the architecture in 1:1 scale.

Opening hours:
Monday-Thursday 8 am - 3 pm
Friday 8 am - 6 pm

Cobe aarhus stadion

Cobe is proud to share our design proposal for the New Stadium in Aarhus

Cobe is proud to share our design proposal - as one of the three finalist in the international competition - for the New Stadium and home ground for the football team AGF in Aarhus. The design is inspired by the historical entrance hall and the surrounding forest Kongelunden, and has an ambitious sustainability strategy by upcycling and reusing building components from the existing stadium, which is only 20 years old today. Respecting the cultural heritage, our proposal scales down the large stadium volume and adapts the red-tone colors of the existing buildings on the facade - and the white colour of AGF inside. The facade is inspired by cones found in the clearing of the forest and with facade plates as leaves of trees - filtering light and creating an atmosphere.

Thank you to the entire team for a great collaboration AFL Architects, Buro Happold, and Turner and Townsend. Our proposal will be exhibited

Cobe to design Turku Science Park in Finland

Cobe wins the design of a 17 ha mixed-use area, Turku Science Park, in Turku, Finland. The area will bring together a 25,000 m² education campus, Taito Campus, for Turku Vocational Institute with residential and office buildings offering new types of workplaces. Centered around a mobility hub with a new tram line and bus lines, the district will strengthen the connection between Turku and Helsinki. The district will become a lively neighborhood for the residents, students, and workers.

The project is done in collaboration with the architects, Lundén and Arkkitehdit von Boehm – Renell, the engineers, WSP and AFRY, and the developer, YIT. In the coming years, we will develop the masterplan, and build the education campus, the mobility hub, and one of the mixed-use buildings - set to complete in 2027.

Palads web 1

Cobe is proud to share three sketch proposals for the future Palads in Copenhagen

We are proud to share our three sketch proposals for a transformation of the iconic Palads in central Copenhagen, developed in close collaboration with Nordisk Film and with ideas from the citizens of Copenhagen. Our founder, Dan Stubbergaard, elaborates: "Nordisk Film has been extremely ambitious exploring several different options for the future Palads and a world-class cinema. We propose three directions for the development of Palads, a classical direction, a modern direction and a green direction. All three proposals have been developed with respect for the site and point to an architecture that is more open, welcoming and inviting to the people of Copenhagen and the surrounding city."
