The Opera Park opens in Copenhagen, providing a green oasis amidst a bustling urban development
In a time of intense construction activity throughout Copenhagen, green recreational spaces have become more and more scarce. Yet, in the heart of the dense and historic city center, one of the inner harbor’s prime locations has not been developed, but transformed into a lush, green park island, featuring six gardens and a greenhouse. Situated between The Royal Danish Opera and Cobe’s soon-to-be completed Paper Island, The Opera Park offers a green escape from the bustling life of the city.
Hyllie Terrass inagurated with triple certification
Yesterday marked the grand inauguration of Hyllie Terrass, Skanska's new regional office in Malmö, Sweden. Designed by Cobe, this 14,000 m² office building serves as a pilot project for the Sweden Green Building Council’s newly established ZeroCO₂ certification system. What's more, the building has also achieved LEED Platinum from the U.S. Green Building Council and WELL Gold from the International WELL Building Institute. The certifications have been achieved through a range of measures, from using climate-improved concrete and recycled reinforcements to producing up-cycled furniture from the building's own construction waste, among other things.
