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."

Cobe humbolthain

Cobe wins the international masterplan competition for a new city district - Quartier Am Humboldthain – in central Berlin

Quartier am Humboldthain is inspired by the neighboring Humboldthain Park, one of Berlin’s green lungs and the old AEG Turbine Factory by architect Peter Behrens, which had a significant influence on Berlin’s and Germany’s industrial history, and. The new district transforms an area of 6,5 ha from a closed, monofunctional solitary building to an open and flexible urban plan organized around a new central park. Closing the building block towards the park, the district will offer new addresses along Gustav-Meyer-Allee with significant green views. The park becomes the green lung and central public space, also preventing heat and collecting rainwater after cloudbursts. It forms the organic counterweight to the unique industrial heritage with large industrial halls and the four new built high-rises. The masterplan will include 235.000m² of commercial use with a focus on the science and technology related industries. The synergy of history and future, research and production, nature and culture, openness and enclosure will make the new “Quartier am Humboldthain” a true future-proof district of Berlin.

The project is developed together with SHP Ingenieure, Werner Sobeck, and Hans-Jörg Scherbening, DEKRA for Quartier Am Humboldthain, Büro Dr. Vogel, and Coros.

Cobe to design a new, green city district - Baneparken - at Viva-grunden in Odense C

Cobe has won the parallel assignment to design a new city district Baneparkn in the center of Odense for the developer A. Enggaard – a new mixed-use district of housing, offices, retail, and cultural facilities on a 50.000 m² site. With a location adjacent to the railway tracks, the site today is experienced as a noisy and empty backside of the city. With Baneparken, we are rethinking the site’s industrial characteristics, creating a vibrant neighborhood that becomes a green, unifying link between the inner city, Nørrebro, Kongens Have and Odense harbor.

Baneparken will become a pedestrian friendly district with a continuous green path as the backbone, making room for the city’s dynamism, strong communities, a new city park and urban spaces for a wide range of activities - a district humming along with the dynamic soundscape of the neighboring train tracks. Baneparken is inspired by Odense’s characteristic courtyard structure and brick façades, creating a natural link to the surrounding areas while becoming an attractive destination for all residents in the city.

The masterplan is designed together with Urban Creators, 103 Rådgivende Ingeniører and MOE.

Cobe to design the headquarters for pharmaceutical company Dr. Falk Pharma and the Falk Foundation

Cobe has won the competition to design the headquarters for pharmaceutical company Dr. Falk Pharma and the Falk Foundation.

The 18,500 m² future-proof innovation campus offering 250 workplaces, offices, co-working spaces and public facilities will be located in Freiburg, Germany, next to the city’s historic locomotive workshop building; Die Freiburger Lokhalle. Cobe’s winning project draws cues from the architecture of the locomotive workshop building, its pitched roofs and rational, industrial design language. Flexible and robust spaces with visual connections and direct access to greenery create a high degree of flexibility for different styles of working, and lets Dr. Falk Pharma adapt the spaces to the company’s needs as they evolve and vary over time.

The HQ is planned for completition in 2025 and designed with support from Buro Happold and DEKRA..
