Cobe wins design contest for Munich's 'Sugar Valley'

Cobe has won the design contest for a new multi-use building complex at the former Sendlinger concrete factory site in Munich, Germany. Transformed into a new residential, commercial, and cultural neighborhood known as 'Sugar Valley', the project invites the neighborhood in with a special focus on a mix of office, retail, and public amenities.

Spanning two buildings of 36,200 m², the project celebrates community through generous and inviting architecture, with both the top and ground floors open to the public. The design rests on the idea of a set of volumes stacked on top of each other providing a series of green terraces and facades at different heights of the building.

Corum breaks ground

The construction of ‘Corum’, previously know as ‘Falk Areal', has started in the German city of Freiburg.

Inspired by the neighboring historic freight depot and its pitched roofs and rational, industrial design language, Corum is envisioned as a place of encounters and exchange - a lively meeting point for working, living and culture in the area. Developed by Lifa Breisgau, the future campus will provide 350 workplaces, including the headquarters of the pharmaceutical company Dr. Falk Pharma and the Falk Foundation, alongside restaurants and public amenities. Set for completition in 2026, the building is on track for DGNB gold certification, with a flexible, future-proof design and a modular hybrid timber construction.

Cobe to design Museum Wegner 01

Cobe selected to design the future Museum Wegner

Cobe has been chosen as the architect for the future Museum Wegner. The museum will be located at the historic ‘Hestholm’ farm - approximately one kilometer from the city center of Tønder - a historical town in Southern Denmark at the border to Germany, where Hans J. Wegner was born and where he served his apprenticeship as a carpenter.

"We are humbled and honoured to have the opportunity to pay tribute to Hans J. Wegner - one of the great masters of Danish design. The new museum will be located at ‘Hestholm’ - one of the historic marsh farms in the Tønder area. In a mix of transformation of the existing farm and new extensions, the museum will provide the physical setting for Wegner's design universe in a way that respects the nature and cultural heritage of the local area, while also incorporating the international appeal that defines Wegner's furniture" - Cobe founder and architect, Dan Stubbergaard.

Four architecture firms join forces to shape Copenhagen's harbourfront

In a unique collaboration among four Danish architecture firms – Cobe, Dorte Mandrup, JAJA Architects and Vandkunsten – alongside Sweco engineers, Cobe will be designing a dynamic mixed-use city district with up to 100,000 m² of harbor front housing and commercial spaces, interconnected by canals, bridges, and lush green areas in Copenhagen’s South Harbor.

The project will focus on addressing the need for housing to be accessible to all in Copenhagen. It will include up to 1,000 large and small rental apartments and condominiums, and more than 25% of the total housing area will be designed as social housing. The ambition is to use biogenic materials wherever possible – including wood for structures. All buildings will target DGNB platinum certification and be constructed to align with the Reduction Roadmap initiative, that translates the principles of the Paris Agreement and the Planetary Boundary for Climate Change into CO₂ reduction targets for new Danish housing projects.
