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. Developed by AP Pension, 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.

Another important aim of the project is to ensure that the buildings contribute as much as possible to the green transition within the building industry. One 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.

The project brings affordable rental apartments to the city, while providing residents with generous apartments, flooded with light through floor-to-ceiling windows and access to attractive amenity spaces. The project stacks architectural components from the three surrounding neighbourhoods: Townhouses, warehouses and silos, creating a building complex that both responds to its surroundings and contributes by adding new distinctive, robust and diverse architecture.

Cobe to transform Risskov School

Cobe has won the transformation and extension project for Risskov School, creating an extraordinary everyday environment for children and young people in the Danish city of Aarhus.

The upcoming transformation and expansion of this historic public school, originally built in the 1920s with several extensions added later, will adhere to a maximum limit value of 8 kg CO₂/m²/year, in accordance with Danish low-emission building regulations. This entails, among other things, conducting screenings, variant analyses, and a number of overall LCA analyses already during the initial stages to ensure optimal conditions for the future school.

We look forward to collaborating with ABC, NERD Architects, Johansen&Rasmussen, Celis Consult and the City of Aarhus to create an adaptable, robust, and flexible school, focusing on enhancing well-being for all, minimizing climate impact, and honoring the rich cultural heritage of the area.
