Cobe unveils community meeting places for Realdania's 25th anniversary

In celebration of Realdania's 25th anniversary, Cobe has teamed up with ReVærk, Archival Studies, Pihlmann Architects, Rumgehør, and Studio XYZ to create 150 new communal spaces in Denmark.

Named The Workshop, The Conservatory, The Nature Base, and The Community Roof, the communal spaces are a series of small pavilions, designed with the goal of maximizing community interaction while minimizing environmental impact. The meeting places will be constructed using recycled, surplus, and biogenic materials, and they are also designed for future disassembly and recycling, ensuring they leave no physical traces on their sites. By the end of 2026, at least 150 of these structures will be built. The meeting places are gifted to communities, with the sole requirement of strengthening and uniting the local community.

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.
