COBE is a Danish architecture firm founded in Copenhagen in 2006 by architect Dan Stubbergaard. COBE focuses on architecture and design – from buildings to public space, to large scale urban planning. Since the founding, COBE has created several high-profile, prize-winning projects in Denmark and abroad. Among the firm’s most important projects are the combined library and culture centre in Copenhagen’s North-west district, Nørreport Station – the busiest train station in all of Denmark, and the development of the harbor area Nordhavnen in Copenhagen – currently the largest urban development project in Scandinavia. For COBE, architecture is not a matter of a certain style or form, but more importantly its adaptability to the local context, its social life and its users. The aim is to create social interaction through all projects.
COBE is situated in a refurbished warehouse centrally located on the so-called Paper Island on the Copenhagen harbor front, and currently employs approximately 80 dedicated architects, urban planners and thinkers of different nationalities.
